Metal producers will be able to experience the latest generation of stunning surface effects and long-lasting coil coatings from AkzoNobel at METALCON 2019, the largest event in North America dedicated to metal in design and construction.

Experts from AkzoNobel, a leading global paints and coatings company, will be showcasing leading-edge products and services such as Expressions, a revolutionary metal print system that adds depth and dimension to exterior finishes by using texture over a print pattern.

The Expressions system enables manufacturers to combine the durability of metal with many appealing visuals, including the aesthetic of wood. AkzoNobel also produces industry-leading metal coatings products, such as CERAM-A-STAR, a silicone-modified polyester coating renowned for its durability, consistency, and color stability; TRINAR, a versatile high performance PVDF coil coating system; and Polydure, a high-quality polyester paint system.

Visitors to the AkzoNobel booth #1627 will also be able to experience the company’s innovative Canopy app, which is available in the Apple App Store. Providing on-the-spot access to the company’s vast product database, the app enables users to quickly find the perfect product for pre-painted metal applications, based on brand, color group, finish and other attributes. It also includes a color tab function that allows users to visualize coil and extrusion products on real surfaces.

One lucky visitor could also be walking away with an iPad in AkzoNobel’s free prize draw.

“We want visitors to our booth to truly experience what we can do for them. We’re especially excited to show off the Expressions print system, which is one of the coolest technologies in the coil coatings industry right now,” says Chris Bradford, AkzoNobel Segment Marketing Director, Coil & Packaging, Industrial Coatings. “It is an amazing piece of technology that can add real value for consumers, and at METALCON, you can see and feel in person how it works.”

METALCON 2019 takes place from October 16-18, 2019, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
