IGP America says surveys in the coating business show that one of the most required demands for coated surfaces has been an increased robustness, and with that, surfaces that can stand being treated in packing, handling in transportation and dealt with on the building site.
 
IGP is now introducing what it calls a groundbreaking innovation that will help keep surfaces intact: the scratch-resistant S-series: Longer lasting, cleaner staying and easier handling in processes.  
 
Dark colors with higher gloss are especially known for having problems with scratching, wear and surface disturbances and it is also here the most important difference is recognized. So IGP says it decided to apply this powder technology for the first time to its reliable and well known all-round-like façade product, IGP-Dura face 5807, starting in mid-September 2016.
 
For end customers, the product characteristics signify greater serviceability and thus extended value conservation. Developed for diverse applications, the IGP-Dura face 5807 silk gloss façade powder is equipped with the new property across the entire range of its colors and products.
Previously: Standard polyester-based powder coating | New: IGP-DURA face 5807 Type S for robust surfaces
Integration of the “robust surfaces” film property delivers new benefits:
  • More scratch-proof
  • More abrasion-resistant
  • Easier to clean
  • Optimized gradient
Special test methods, such as the Martindale test, prove the difference. The products of the IGP-Dura face 5807 product group, with “increased scratch resistant” are labelled with an “S” in the 11th position of the article code. These articles can be mixed with the quality provided to date by IGP-Dura face 5807, labelled with an “F,” without compromising on optical properties. 
 
A New Dimension of Robustness
Surveys in coating business show that one of the most required demands for coated surfaces has been an increased robustness and with that surfaces that can stand being treated in packing, handling in transportation and dealt with on the building site. 
 
IGP is now introducing a groundbreaking innovation that will help you keep your surfaces intact. We introduce the scratch-resistant S-series: Longer lasting, cleaner staying and easier handling in your processes. S for “strong surfaces.”
 
Dark colors with higher gloss are especially known for having problems with scratching, wear and surface disturbances and it is also here the most important difference is recognized. That is a good reason why we decided to apply this powder technology for the first time to all-round-like façade product IGP-Dura face 5807 starting in mid-September 2016.

IGP says the product is mixable with its previous version of  5807 and can easily be switched.
