Powdertech Corby celebrates the beauty of metal

Over recent years Powdertech Corby has developed unique ranges of powder coating materials that follow trends in style and developments in technology. Two ofthe company's 'Collections' range make a point of using powder coatings to reflect the natural aesthetic appeal of metal itself, in addition to protecting it from corrosion and abrasion. Metal, in its natural state, can offer a

variety of 'looks' to the designer and architect. Stainless steel evokes a clinical, modern, technological feeling. Lead-dull or spangled zinc can look minimalist or rustic. Copper and brass have a warm and homely appearance. Oxidised copper and rusted iron look vintage, or stylishly 'grungy'. Evolution™, launched in March 2017,

addresses the last of those 'looks' - stylishly and colourfully 'aged'. In the natural environment, oxidation occurs on the surface of metals such as copper and bronze, resulting in beautiful patinas, but the metal itself is

compromised, its strength and inherent properties weakened. Using Evolution powders, designers can achieve stunning effects on metal which is intact and protected. These polyester resin powder coatings create the effect of patination on the surface of the metal and provide excellent weather protection and durability. Another specialist powder coating range, Anomatch™, enhances the metal with a lustrous sheen, creating an alternative finish

Midland Lead ahead of the game

Lead sheet manufacturer Midland Lead is one of the first in the lead industry to have been awarded the new ISO 14001 2015 Environmental Management accreditation by the BSI. With a high commitment to reducing environmental impact, the company received the updated ISO ahead of schedule in December 2016. In a bid to support emissions reductions in the UK, Midland Lead’s recent

improvements include investment in a new energy efficient crane, truck upgrades, purchasing five Autogas (LPG)-operated forklifts and replacing halogen light bulbs with LED light bulbs across the factory. Architects Datafile website

to anodising. Anodised aluminium has a reputation for its 'living' quality, with natural metallic radiance. Anomatch creates the same effect, on aluminium and galvanized steel and the metal has high protection from corrosion and abrasion. Anomatch achieves a homogenous appearance within and between batches of material which is difficult to achieve with anodising, and across different materials which is impossible for anodising. Where once, powder coatings, in their

primary role as metal protectors, firmly hid the underlying metal from sight, the ability to protect and at the same time celebrate the natural beauty of metal has made many more design choices available to architects, designers and fabricators. Visit the website for more infomation.
