Interface Polymers Wins AkzoNobel Paint the Future Award June 17 2019

2019 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, June 17, 2019

Interface Polymers Ltd. has won one of the AkzoNobel “Paint the Future” Awards given to innovative startups, winning an Award in the ‘Enhanced Functionality’ category. Interface Polymers faced stiff competition from all over the world, being shortlisted from a total of 160 submissions received by AkzoNobel in response to its innovation collaboration initiative, launched at the beginning of this year to find solutions to five real-world paint and coating challenges. The technology is highly versatile, enabling Interface Polymers to develop a growing family of additive products that may be used across a diverse range of markets, applications and polymer products in the value chain including: masterbatches and compounds; thermoplastic composites; filled polymers; sheet and film products.

Following the announcement of the award winners in mid-May, AkzoNobel signed a ‘Letter of Intent’ business agreement with Interface Polymers as part of the Paint the Future Accelerator Program. The next stage is to carry out collaborative research and development project work using Interface Polymers’ innovative di-block polymer Polarfin additive technology to develop new polymer-based paints and coatings with enhanced performance and functionality. The project aims to create new, commercially viable coatings which solve problems faced by industrial, construction and domestic end use market applications.
