Axalta New Range Wood Coatings Recognized Product Design The unique formulations of the Zenamel™ range from Axalta are based on cutting-edge coating technology. It enables significant time savings during the application process along with unparalleled surface protection and aesthetics.

Consolidation of Coating Layers with Improved Efficiency

Comprising two distinct product lines, Zenamel™ SP and Zenamel™ T, the launch of the range has already been met with huge critical acclaim. Both the products won a prestigious Edison Award. The Edison Awards celebrate outstanding examples of innovation and are among the most respected accolades within new product design.

Zenamel™ SP is engineered to consolidate a conventional three coating finishing system into a single coating for outstanding performance and aesthetics. It is the only coating of its kind that offers the filling properties of a primer while also providing the moisture and chemical resistance of an enamel, without the need for a clear coat layer. By reducing the number of coats applied, Zenamel™ SP increases productivity, improves process yields and reduces the number of stock-keeping units (SKUs) needed.

Zenamel™ T is designed for processing efficiency and superior aesthetics. Only one coat of primer and enamel are needed compared to the standard four coats of competing solutions. Zenamel™ T is optimized to eliminate the need for two separate products for horizontal and vertical applications. It saves cost and simplifies the manufacturing process.

Wade Arnold, vice president and general manager of Axalta Building Products, said, "Our commitment to developing innovative wood coating solutions is at the heart of everything we do. Because of our investment in new technologies like the Zenamel™ range, OEMs can now reap major benefits in the form of operational efficiencies and superior performance, as shown by our success at the Edison Awards.
