The following CPD materials have been assessed and approved by the RIBA.
Basics of Powder Coatings
Architectural coatings are a matter of trust: an average building lifetime of more than 50 years demands maximum performance in terms of colour stability, maintenance of gloss level and corrosion protection. Careful and environmentally-friendly selection of raw materials, formulations and state-of-the-art production processes are an important pre-condition to providing you and your client with long-term satisfaction and peace of mind. Architectural coatings are also subject to individual design requirements and the vagaries of time. This is a seminar that answers all your powder coating questions.
IGP stands for quality, safety and reliability – standards that benefit you. You can expect innovative, economical powder coating systems from IGP for a wide range of materials: whether for coating solutions in architecture, industry, transport or the wooden furniture sector. IGP consistently strives to find the best solution for every customer.
