AkzoNobel Unveils an Ultra-reflective Powder Coating to Boost Light Reflection by 30 Percent

Published on 2015-03-20. Author : SpecialChem

 AkzoNobel has launched an ultra-reflective powder coating which can increase the effective output of commercial lighting fixtures by up to 30 percent. 

Developed by the company's Powder Coatings business, Interpon ReFlex delivers outstanding levels of light reflectance which make it very cost-effective. What's more, because the product is solvent-free (like all powder coatings), it also has a lower environmental impact than competing materials used in the lighting market. 

"Interpon ReFlex allows you to obtain more light from a specified power input for any light source, including halogens and LEDs," explained Mark Reekie, Global Marketing Manager - General Industrial at AkzoNobel Powder Coatings.

He added that as well as its performance and sustainability benefits, Interpon ReFlex also offers easy application and use compared with other non-coating alternatives. Additional key features include excellent impact resistance and flexibility, as well as good corrosion and UV resistance. 

Commenting on the launch, Conrad Keijzer, Executive Committee member responsible for Performance Coatings, said: "We're constantly striving to develop more innovative and sustainable products for our customers and Interpon ReFlex is the latest example of the company's Planet Possible approach to innovation, which is focused on creating more value from fewer resources."

Due to be introduced globally during the course of 2015, Interpon ReFlex has already been proven at major lighting manufacturers throughout North America.
