Axalta's Architectural Applicator Program Reimagines Global Quality
Program Will Serve to Ensure Consistent Product Performance in Any Part of the World

PHILADELPHIA, June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Axalta (NYSE: AXTA) has launched its architectural applicator approval program to further ensure that façade fabricators, system houses, façade consultants, developers and architects specifying Alesta® Axalta powder coatings can expect consistent performance and quality on their building projects across the globe. The program will serve as a step further toward performance excellence for Axalta.


The launch follows the successful introduction of Axalta's global warranty program for its architectural powder coatings last year. Technical Guidelines have been revised and unified as a stringent testing process has been created to assess applicators in the same way globally, while taking into account regional particularities in terms of architectural standards. Axalta will offer two levels of approvals depending on coatings durability and warranty.

"As the market continues to globalize, we are committed to offering customers durable and high-quality products they can depend on for projects in any part of the world," said Michael Cash Axalta Senior Vice President and President, Industrial Coatings. "This program will ensure that our approved applicators have been certified by Axalta to meet our standards and will strengthen Axalta's role as a global, industry leader in supplying quality powder coatings."
