AKZONOBEL INVESTS $30 MILLION IN POWDER COATINGS SITES IN NORTH AMERICA

AkzoNobel is investing more than $30 million to modernize equipment and boost manufacturing capabilities at four North American powder coating sites.

Company officials said they are incorporating new extruders, thermoplastics and bonding processes at facilities in Reading, Pennsylvania; Warsaw, Indiana; Nashville; and Monterrey, Mexico. Officials explained that installing thermoplastic materials in the powder coatings formulation will open up new possibilities for diverse applications and performance enhancements.

That’s because effective bonding between pigment particles and resin matrix is important to achieve durable and aesthetically pleasing powder coatings. At the same time, the advanced extruders will enable real-time adjustments and maintain control over the extrusion process.

“As customers continue to prioritize sustainability, durability and performance, the demand for powder coatings is projected to escalate,” said Jeff Jirak, global director of Powder Coatings. “By staying ahead of the curve and investing in these advanced technologies, we’re positioning ourselves as a leader in this thriving market.”
