Powder coatings combining exciting individualism with reliability

Evolution™, Powdertech’s latest architectural powder coatings collection, is fascinating, daring and unusual. It is also a highly reliable metal finishing system for aluminium, galvanised steel and mild steel and carries the Powdertech 25-year colour, gloss and adhesion guarantee . Every Evolution finish is produced anew at the time of application and is unique for each customer. Combining flashes of one colour across a second gives a consistent inconsistency, mirroring the authentic variations in patina that occur as metals age and weather.

This is an adventurous powder coating collection, noticeable and memorable, ensuring that your design stands out from the crowd. The Evolution process has been tested, rigorously and independently, by PRA World Ltd to European Standard EN ISO 12206 and Qualicoat specifications. The test procedures included wet adhesion, acetic acid salt spray, humidity resistance, accelerated weathering and Filiform corrosion. Mechanical tests included sawing, milling, drilling, bending and cupping. In addition, Powdertech tested for inter-coat adhesion and high-pressure jet wash resistance, tests more usually associated with the automotive industry. In all cases, Evolution demonstrated excellent performance and the results can be seen in the data sheets at powdertechcorby.co.uk.

Available in seventy-two different shades, these polyester-based systems cure to form beautifully textured finishes, often incorporating metallic or pearlescent elements. The collection has five ranges – Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Steam Age and Modern Day, an evolutionary journey through natural and manufactured materials.

The Evolution range of powders will be exhibited by Powdertech at The Surface Design Show, 5-7 February 2019, in The Business Design, London, N1 0QH.
