AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business has launched a dry-on-dry primer and topcoat application process with only one heating stage.

Interpon Align is a two-coat, one-bake powder coating system that eliminates one full cure cycle.

Align eliminates the primer curing process, curing both coating layers simultaneously, according to the company.

Tailored Options

The system is suitable for thick, heavy mass metal parts for OEM specifications, according to AkzoNobel. It  provides good edge retention and corrosion protection, the company says.

Interpon Align

Align eliminates one full cure cycle and can be used on thick metal substrates, according to AkzoNobel.

The system can increase efficiency and output by up to 30 percent during commercial use, according to John Wolff, managing director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings.

Align can be tailored for color, pre-treatment, line conditions and performance requirements.
