Important new standard for powder coating

Revision of powder coating standard BS EN 12206

The revised standard covering powder coatings for architectural buildings, BS EN 12206-1:2021, was published in May 2021. This new European standard has been formulated after a long period of consultation with CEN/CENELEC members and has independent input from all interested parties. The result is a practical standard drawing on experience across the industry. Significant revisions within the standard concern coating flexibility, coating thickness and outdoor exposure performance requirements.

An EN (European Standard) “carries with it the obligation to be implemented at national level by being given the status of a national standard and by withdrawal of any conflicting national standard". Therefore, a European Standard (EN) automatically becomes a national standard in each of the thirty-four CEN-CENELEC member countries.

The revisions will further enhance the reputation of this long-standing European Standard which specifiers can add to their library in the knowledge that it is supported by other European and International standards ( at least twenty-one)  thus ensuring that it is both relevant and accurate.
