Powder coating for an earthy realism

Evolution 'Peat Fire' is shown to great effect on the new retail outlets at the Team Valley Retail Park, Gateshead. Situated underneath the spreading arms of the ‘Angel of the North’ and built above former coal mines it felt right for the park to reflect its industrial origins. Cor-ten was considered but in using this product, special attention has to be paid to storm water drainage in order to prevent run-off from staining surrounding structures, and other surfaces.  

Powdertech Corby’s Evolution™ powder coatings were a perfect solution. These powders reproduce the effects of weathering on metals and can be applied to both aluminium and steel. The application of the powder ensures a variation in shade to reflect the inconsistency in natural metal patination.  The finished surface is not affected by water and has a twenty-five year guarantee for colour and gloss retention, adhesion and durability.

After viewing several samples from the extensive Evolution range of seventy-two shades the client decided upon ‘Peat Fire’, a shade giving the appearance of aged, rusted steel, and a perfect partner to the ‘Angel’. Powdertech pre-treated and coated 1000 sq metres of aluminium panels and corner cappings.
