AkzoNobel Adds a New Design App

Architects, designers and specifiers can now research and create a full coatings specification from a mobile device following the launch of a new app from AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business.

Part of a group of digital tools for customers, AkzoNobel’s new design app allows users to develop a bespoke technical specification in a matter of minutes by offering a choice of filters at each stage of the decision process. These filters range from type of construction material, geographical location of project and durability requirements, to liquid and powder coating options, color choices and finished look while increasing overall efficiency.

A powerful tool which can increase customer efficiency, the new app is the latest addition to the rapidly growing selection of innovative digital solutions provided by AkzoNobel across its businesses.

Russell Deane, AkzoNobel’s Global Specification Manager for the powder coatings architectural segment, said that  the app was developed to address the time-consuming process of running through colour cards, and then checking that products met the necessary requirements of durability, toughness and weathering. This manual process has been speeded up with the app, but without any compromises to the level of detail demanded by a specification.

Being an app, it can be used from anywhere in the world, on the road, out in the field, or in the client’s office.

Users can find full data sheets, test reports and property characteristics for each paint range and finish are provided. The app also lets users check real-life examples of projects where their selected products have been used.

In addition to displaying the company’s complete range of colours and finishes including metallic, the app also allows users to colour match by simply uploading a picture of the chosen colour. The app instantly searches for the closest matches, which can then be built into a personalised colour card.

As well as showcasing the company’s complete range of colors and finishes – including metallic – the app also allows users to color match. Simply upload a photograph of your chosen color (the blue of a swimming pool for example) and the app instantly searches for the closest matches. Chosen colors can then be built into a personalized color card.
