An Evolution in Colour – The beauty of metal itself is making a resurgence as an impressive design feature with recent trends towards naturally weathered metals. Powdertech Corby has responded with its own flagship powder coating collection, Evolution™, offering the organic, natural look of metal patination.
The name ‘Evolution™’ reflects the changes in appearance that occur as metals evolve when exposed to the atmosphere. Rust on iron, blue-green verdigris oxidation on copper, and other metal patinas are all visually attractive but metal in this state is not fit for purpose – it is decaying and losing its integrity. Evolution™ powder coatings offer the best of both worlds; the desired appearance of weathered metal together with high level protection against weathering for your metal.
The powders used for Evolution™ are of architectural specification, meeting the necessary Qualicoat and British/European standards. All products used are rigorously tested for durability, corrosion protection and colour stability. Unique processes, carried out under controlled conditions, result in a finish that is suitable for internal and external architectural applications with an authentic variation in appearance that will be unique to every customer. Evolution™ takes patination into new realms with seventy-two different shades currently. Continuing with an evolution theme, shades are grouped into five ranges – Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Steam Age to Modern Day.
With Evolution ™, designers and architects can employ the strength and versatility of metal and celebrate its beauty by protecting it with a coating that not only ensures longevity but reflects how its appearance would evolve over time, in the natural environment. Specifiers and manufacturers can select the finishes with full confidence in their suitability and performance, confirmed by Powdertech’s twenty-five-year guarantee.
