Senior Architectural Systems has added to its in-house powder coating offering with the addition of a new ultra matt powder paint coating from Akzo Nobel said to give the same visual appearance as anodised aluminium.

The new ultra matt finish can achieve the same aesthetic appeal of anodised aluminium, the company says, but with better consistency, particularly between joints, and the extra advantage of allowing marks and scuffs to be repaired on site.

It can offer up to five times more colour retention than standard coatings and can also help reduce the embedded carbon calculation associated with adonising, as it is far less time intensive, produces less waste and is completely solvent-free.

Sales director James Keeling-Heane said: “We appreciate that many of our fabricator and specification clients still prefer the look of anodised aluminium. That’s why we wanted to ensure that this part of our service also benefited from the latest innovation and investment.

“This new paint finish emulates the look of anodised aluminium but provides a more consistent and durable finish. We are also proud that our aluminium systems will be used in conjunction with Akzo Nobel’s new coating on a new contract in Manchester and we will share more details of this scheme as work progresses.”
