All that Glitters

The new External Highgloss Multichrome powdercoat is now available with our range of metals and will bring a shine to your projects.

The finish offers a unique metallic effect that shows the complete colour spectrum when illuminated in the direct sunlight and changes depending on the angle of the view.

This stunning finish was developed by powder coating manufacturer’s Adapta, and can be used on most architectural metals and facades. It’s available in a smooth metallic or pearl effect, which is created by applying the clear metallic coat on top of black PPC and other colours.

It has been designed to exceed the international quality specifications such as Qualicoat CLASS 2, GSB MASTER, AAMA 2604.

Cleaning and Maintenance:

The finish is suitable for a variety of different applications and if its properly maintained, it will keep its colour and shine.

If the profile comes into contact with dirt or other contaminants, it may increase the risk of corrosion (especially in coastal or industrial environments). This can be avoided by regular cleaning and maintenance in line with Qualicoat guidelines (July 2011 edition) or AAMA 609 & 610-02 standards.
