AkzoNobel extends partnership with McLaren

20 April 2015

AkzoNobel has extended its official supplier partnership with McLaren Racing. The announcement came as McLaren-Honda geared up for the Australian GP, last month, where the MP4-30 showcased AkzoNobel’s superior high-gloss finishes.

The two companies have been working closely together since 2008 when, via its Sikkens brand, AkzoNobel first became official supplier of paint solutions to McLaren Racing, an arrangement that was later extended to McLaren Automotive. AkzoNobel has used its relationship with McLaren to develop its extreme environment technology and use lessons learned in Formula 1 to drive innovations in other industries.

McLaren Racing has been able to field cars that have consistently created a stunning visual impact, while also enjoying direct performance gains from the small but crucial, weight savings that AkzoNobel’s technology has been able to provide.
