Alutech Systems has worked with AkzoNobel to create Bio-Colour, an antimicrobial coating as an option on its systems and hardware, available on the same lead time as its standard coatings.

MD Steve Hudson said: “In the current climate, hygiene is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, the bio-coating on our profile provides that extra level of protection, and is perfect in spaces with a high volume of traffic, such as schools, shopping centres, hospitals and more.

“We are pleased to being this partnership with AkzoNobel to market, in addition to our already strong offering with our quality product range.”

“We offer a wide choice of colour options for aluminium profile systems with AkzoNobel antimicrobial technology. These include standard RAL colours, Alutech brand colours, as well as special colours at the customer’s request. An extensive range of textures and special finishes are also available. Our exclusive range of colours and finishes is provided by our own cutting-edge powder coating and anodizing facilities.

“ We care about the health and wellbeing of our consumers, so we’ve teamed up with AkzoNobel to ensure that the powder coating of our profiles performs to the very highest antimicrobial standards.”
