AkzoNobel launches Intura premium coating system


Paints and coatings company, AkzoNobel has launched Intura, a flexible interior coating system that it says can make aircraft cabins more durable, modern and visually appealing, and also help airlines differentiate their brands. According to the company, this single-component, water-borne interior cabin topcoat requires just one coat, has very low VOC (volatile organic compound) content, no isocyanates, and outperforms all major OEM performance requirements.

“Our durable Intura brand helps airlines with several crucial aspects, including easier application, less maintenance and better looks,” stated John Griffin, global segment director for AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings and Film. “From superior abrasion and stain resistance to gloss retention, Intura makes interior cabins stand out.”

Showing the product at Aircraft Interiors Expo in Boston, AkzoNobel highlighted advantages including protection of interior substrates, color/gloss retention, and prevention of abrasion through self-cross-linking and self-extinguishing, low heat release, fire-resisting technology. Finishes include solids, pearls, micas and metallics, and they can be applied to decorative surfaces including metal, epoxy or polyester composites, or thermoplastics such as PEI, PPSU, PC and PEEK.
