Powder Coatings

Alesta® AP MarResistant

Especially formulated to improve mar resistance

Alesta AP MarResistant Powder Coatings are especially formulated to improve the mar resistance of smooth dark glossy finishes. The significantly improved surface hardness of these new formulations has a direct impact on the lifetime of the painted object.

This makes the manipulation of powder coated parts a lot easier for the painter: handling, storage, packaging, use and assembly.

This range of products is dedicated to architectural market in order to prevent scratches on profiles caused by manipulation and cleaning of assembled parts. But it can also be interesting for other applications where painted parts can be sensitive to scratches:
