Rust-busting Paint for Metal

Architecture & Interiors, EMEA, Supplier News
AkzoNobel Hammerite's brand has launched a new range of waterborne protective coatings for direct application to new and corroded metal.

 

Hammerite Ultima is suitable for use on all types of metal and provides a supreme protective barrier. It can also be applied directly onto any metal surface without the need for a primer.

 

The key innovation lies in its quick-drying formulation, which was developed as part of AkzoNobel’s Waterway initiative – a multi-year strategic program designed to lead the decorative paints market towards using more water-based product ranges.

 

AkzoNobel COO, Ruud Joosten, explains:

"Reducing the impact our products have on the environment is a fundamental part of our 'People. Planet. Paint.' approach to sustainability."

 

Luc Rens, the company’s Global Marketing Manager for wood and metal coatings within Akzo Nobel's Decorative Paints business, adds:

"Consumers want the best protection for any metal, whatever they are working on, and Hammerite Ultima is the best solution.


"In many cases, our customers don’t know exactly what type of metal they’re dealing with, which can create confusion. With Hammerite Ultima, consumers will always have the right answer, providing peace of mind and reassurance that they will have their metal protected for a long time."

 

Suitable for anything from gates and fences to railings and garden furniture, the new product is now available in Germany, Spain and France and is scheduled for launch onto other markets.
