Powdertech ‘Satellite’; A Perfect Partner for Amron Architectural Metal Mesh and Profiles

‘Satellite’ has arrived on the scene, a unique range of finishes developed by Powdertech Corby Ltd. Theses finishes have mesmerising metallic and pearlescent effects with a depth of colour unrivalled in a one-coat application.

The mid-sheen finish with vibrant flashes of light set in a rich colour is so intense that it looks like a million satellites in the sky, hence the name.

Development of the range arose from a casual conversation between Powdertech and Amron Architectural one of the leading players in metal mesh for architecture and interior design. Richard Besant, Director, Powdertech, explains, “Amron mentioned the frustrations of anodic coatings and the difficulty in finding a powder coating that offers a similar depth of colour and layered iridescent effect to anodising. That set us thinking and the result was the Satellite range, launched this month.” Amron is delighted with the range and used it, pre-launch, on the profiled sheet walls of the company’s stand at the Surface Design Show in February. Using ‘Callisto’ from the Satellite range, the undulating surface of the profiled sheet was wonderfully enhanced as light bounced off the glittering finish.

Satellite finishes are suitable for internal and external application and can be applied to most metallic substrates. It is a range that stands along-side anodising, bronzes and golds as a high quality, flexible, unique and economic finish with excellent durability and colour stability.

Samples can be ordered through the Powdertech web site.
