Axalta celebrates

03 December 2014

Axalta Coating Systems is celebrating 50 years of commercially produced latest generation powder coatings, making it one of the oldest powder coating manufacturers in the world. Axalta got its start in commercial powder coatings in 1964 with the acquisition of the Teodur brand that had been manufactured by Wagemakers Lekbrieken, a Dutch family-owned paint company founded in 1848 that sold its first architectural grade thermosetting powder at its site in Teodur.
Axalta’s powder coatings deliver superior coverage and transfer efficiency with both thermosetting and thermoplastic coatings manufactured under the names of Alesta, Nap-Gard and Abcite.
Earlier in 2014, Axalta announced investments to expand production in two locations in China. Also in China, Axalta received Qualicoat Class 2 certification for the production of Alesta Super Durable (SD) powder coating at its joint venture manufacturing facility in Donguan.
