Interpon D1036 and Interpon 810 coatings are protecting and decorating the interior ceiling panels, while products from the Interpon D2525 range offer superior protection to the exterior aluminium structure.

Russell Deane, Global Architectural Marketing Manager AkzoNobel Powder Coatings, commented: "We are very proud that our coatings have been chosen for this prestigious project. The Shard tower is already an iconic structure in the London skyline so expectations for product performance were high. We are delighted that our products stood out as the coating of choice on this project."

The Interpon D range has been used on a wide range of iconic, world-class structures from sports stadiums to museums, apartment buildings, hotels and offices.
