Valspar, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of powder coatings, has helped to transform London’s skyline, with a stunning new look for Great West House in Brentford. The building demanded a finish, in terms of guaranteed reliability, that matched the bold ambitions of its owners CLS.
Valspar applicator Powdertech (Bicester) applied nearly 4.5 tonnes of Silver Metallic powder coating to the two building development (named GW1 and GW2), covering every inch of its metalwork. There are more than 100 colours available in the Syntha Pulvin Matt and Metallic ranges, and all are manufactured under carefully controlled conditions before being supplied only through approved applicators.
They are 100% recyclable and can be applied to aluminium and galvanised steel window frames, cladding panels, curtain walling, roofing and most architectural metalwork.
Peter Hudson, Commercial Manager at Powdertech, Bicester, said: "This was a particularly large and impressive job, but it’s the kind of complex, intricate powder coating work that we specialise in. Valspar’s Syntha Pulvin is one of the prime products in the market and we use it on almost every project, as the coating’s inherent quality and long guarantee appeals to our prestigious clients".
