In 1991, AkzoNobel launched the Interpon D2000 series into the powder coatings market by coating an important new hospital extension in California.

In 2012 we revisited the hospital and measured the colour and gloss.  After 21 years it still looks good, with gloss and color change values even now beating the requirements of the 5-year Florida test in the AAMA 2604 specification.

In 2012 Interpon D2525 was used on Europe’s tallest building, The Shard.  Read all about The Shard here,  visit for further examples of our products in action, and see our success map below for examples of other landmark projects coated with Interpon D2000 series products.
