AkzoNobel are proud to showcase Interpon powder coatings on the newly inaugurated Shard tower in London.

The Shard, a new development in the London Bridge quarter already dominating the London skyline, is now the tallest building in Western Europe. It boasts coating protection from eight different Interpon products applied by approved applicators Josef Gartner and Höfer (Germany) and SAS International (UK). Russell Deane, Global Architectural Marketing Manager AkzoNobel Powder Coatings, commented: “We are very proud that our coatings have been chosen for this prestigious project. The Shard tower is already an iconic structure in the London skyline so expectations for product performance were high. We are delighted that our products stood out as the coating of choice on this project.”

Interpon D is a range of sustainable powder coatings developed specifically for the architectural and construction industry. The Interpon D range has been used on a wide range of iconic, world-class structures from sports stadiums to museums, apartment buildings, hotels and offices. The Shard combines office space, luxurious apartments, outstanding restaurants and the prestigious Shangri-LA hotel, towering at 310 meters. We are pleased to add the Shard to our world-wide track record.
