New Powder Coating Collections from Powdertech Corby

Powdertech Corby has launched three new powder coating Collections, showcasing some of the most popular shades and textures in its wide repertoire. Finding the right shade for an external or internal architectural project is a rewarding part of a designer’s work but can be time consuming and frankly quite overwhelming with the number of shades now available.

Helping to inspire

Powdertech wants to make the task easier for designers by curating together groups of colours and also by creating new unique finishes for emerging trends.

The three new Collections are Stone, Rust and Terracotta, all earth-based shades reflecting the resurgence in popularity for designs based on natural materials. All the powders offer excellent metal protection, colour stability and are Qualicoat class 1 & 2 approved.

Stone, Rust and Terracotta on metal

Stone shades used on metal mean that the solid and enduring appearance of stone can be achieved without the design constraints that the weight of the natural material imposes. Bespoke shades can be created to match or complement existing materials. Real stone needs a regular hard-hitting maintenance routine to maintain its fresh clean appearance, but these powder coatings need only a rinse over with water very six months or so in normal environmental conditions.

Powders in the Rust Collection offer an industrial, lived-in look with excellent metal protection (despite the rusty appearance) and no run-off staining onto surrounding material. Many new developments on brown-field sites are drawn towards honouring the history of the site by referencing its past through colour and texture.

Warm and earthy, terracotta shades will never lose their appeal and the powders in the Terracotta Collection allow designers to combine the strength and versatility of aluminium and steel with the natural charm of terracotta, adaptable to Mediterranean, Eastern, rustic, industrial and even Art Deco styles.

Imagination given free rein

There really is no limit on the types of application and fabrication suitable for these finishes, excepting designers’ imaginations. Typical applications include façade cladding, solar shading, curtain wall, garden sculptures, perforated and expanded aluminium features, windows, trims, fittings, point of sale, retail display, signage, the list goes on. Any of these can be made to resemble stone, terracotta or weathered metal.
