Imron® PU Coatings Brand
Axalta Coating Systems has announced a new visual identity for its iconic Imron® brand of polyurethane coatings, a portfolio of premium quality products for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and, in selected markets, for the aftermarket repair of commercial vehicles.

For decades, Imron® polyurethane enamel has been the number one finish of choice for:
  • Heavy-duty truck
  • Bus 
  • Rail manufacturers

Benefits of Imron® PU Coatings Brand:

  • Provides excellent durability
  • Shows outstanding graffiti-resistant performance on topcoats and clears
  • Provides reliable corrosion protection
  • Helps in excellent resistance to chemicals and weathering, as well as shock and impact

These qualities make Imron® one of the most widely approved coatings among commercial vehicle manufacturers.

Joseph Wood, Vice President for Commercial Vehicle Coatings at Axalta said:

I am excited to launch the new global branding for one of the most recognized commercial paint brands in the industry.”

The new look and feel represents the superior qualities of Imron®. Plus, this year as we celebrate Axalta’s 150th anniversary in the coatings industry, Imron® will carry a new identity that we’re confident will continue to inspire the trust that our customers have placed in the brand for so many years."

New Logo - Three Main Elements

The new logo for Imron® incorporates three elements - a diamond, a road, and a shield – which when combined reflect the attributes that customers have come to value in the Imron® name. The diamond represents Imron’s durability and toughness. The road conveys the tough environments where Imron® is used. The shield conveys Imron’s promise to protect vehicles against the elements.

Vanessa Navarro, Global Marketing Manager at Axalta added:

For five decades Imron has delivered beautiful finishes to commercial vehicle manufacturers and owners.

The new, bold logo will help our customers identify the Imron® brand around the globe and recognize it as the symbol of a superior quality finish for their vehicles.

The new logo and brand design will be introduced in print and digital advertising, marketing collateral, and industry events beginning in September 2016.
