Axalta Expands Architectural Palette With New, Innovative Alesta AR400 Anodic Natura
Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, introduced an innovative new product to its architectural Alesta® powder coating product family called, AR400 Anodic Natura. The product is a super durable polyester designed to provide the versatility of a low gloss, bonded metallic silver, offering the appearance and color of standard anodized finishes with all the benefits associated with a powder coating.
“We are excited to introduce this excellent new product to our architectural powder coating customers,” explained Mike Withers, Axalta Architectural Segment Leader. “AR400 Anodic Natura is formulated to provide a true anodized appearance that is uniform on an array of materials such as aluminum or steel.”
Alesta AR400 Anodic Natura is designed to provide excellent elasticity and abrasion resistance that makes it ideal for hand railings, fencing, residential aluminum extrusions, metal furniture, wheels and general industrial applications. It does not require a clear coat and allows steel and aluminum to have a uniform, anodized appearance with a high batch-to- batch consistency. This product helps make it possible to offer an anodized look on steel cladding, sheet panels and on complex shapes.
With virtually no volatile organic compounds or targeted hazardous air pollutants, AR400 Anodic Natura is an optimal choice for those desiring an environmentally responsible product.
AR400 Anodic Natura joins recent addition, AR400 Arcadia Silver, also in Axalta’s Alesta architectural product line that delivers a high level of design freedom that makes it easy to match glass, plastic, wood or virtually any other building material. The premium weathering polyesters in this collection offer high quality exterior grade pigments and exhibit superior outdoor weathering properties and meet American Architectural Manufacturers Association 2604 standards.
