Polychem Powder Coatings, a division of IFS Coatings, launched the Translucent Collection. The Translucent Collection features 18 translucent effects that bring a depth of color while still allowing the metallic substrate below to shine through.
Created using Polychem’s signature polyester technology, the Translucent Collection showcases a full range of colors from deep black and electric blue to soft pink and a gorgeous green. Some of the collection colors also feature a tiny metallic flake, and metallics can be added to each shade in the collection.
“These translucent powders really do work” explains Glynn Mason, IFS president. “At a recent trade show visitors to our booth were amazed when we coated up aluminum water bottles, preprinted with our logos, with turquoise translucent powder. The bottles were sprayed with powder and the logos completely covered. Then as the powder cured in the oven, the bottle turned turquoise, with the logo clearly visible and a hint of raw metal effect showing beneath.”
The Polychem Translucent Collection is available in flexible quantities as low as 5lb, with sample panels shipped out within 2 days.
Mason adds “Translucent colors have been hugely popular in the last 12 months. From interior designers to automotive refinishing shops, there has been real demand. We really hope this fantastic new collection continues to spark that interest”
