Metal coatings experts from AkzoNobel Coil & Extrusion Coatings will be sharing the latest product insights and innovative application techniques at METALCON 2022, in Indianapolis, Oct. 12-14. 

AkzoNobel’s specialists will be leading a technical know-how session on "What’s in a Coating and its Warranty for Your Pre-Painted Metal," where the company’s coating experts will walk attendees through the specifics of coating technologies, warranties and specifications. 

Ranked in the top 100 trade shows in the country this year by Trade Show Executive Magazine, METALCON is dedicated to the use of metal in design and construction. The show also features “The Architect’s Experience,” a show-within-a-show that aims to inspire architects and show how metal can solve the toughest building design challenges.

METALCON attendees will also have the chance to talk with AkzoNobel Coil & Extrusion Coatings experts at booth #801, where they will be addressing industry questions head-on. These will include the hot topic of supply chain concerns and the need to find alternatives to products that contain PVDF, which is in high demand largely due to its increasing use in electric vehicle and solar panel technology. AkzoNobel has launched a series of videos on PVDF coatings to help companies navigate the current supply chain situation.

"We want attendees visiting our booth to truly experience what we can do for them," says Tamara Toth, regional product marketing manager Americas. "AkzoNobel Coil & Extrusion Coatings provide superior solutions for all customers, whatever their projects. Our products combine high performance, excellent aesthetics, versatile applications, and stronger sustainability — and we look forward to sharing our knowledge with METALCON visitors."

Visitors to the AkzoNobel stand will be able to view proof of performance of its CERAM-A-STAR 1050® system. On display will be actual panels from a South Florida test fence, allowing visitors to make their own comparison and see the level of color and gloss retention of CERAM-A-STAR® 1050 coated panels after extended harsh weather exposure.

Attendees will also be able to experience AkzoNobel’s innovative Canopy app, its powerful color selection and 3D visualization tool. Canopy provides on-the-spot access to the company’s vast product database and enables users to quickly find the perfect product for pre-painted metal applications.

"Providing knowledge, insights and understanding that attendees can use in their businesses is one of our key objectives for the show. We hope to see as many people as possible at booth #801," says Toth.
