From the series " Paints - Innovations 2021"
Nearly a decade ago, IGP Pulvertechnik AG, a leader in powder coatings, launched IGP-DURA®xal 42, an unrivaled premium powder coating system that provides a deep matte finish and an elegant yet unique appearance in architecture and design. The system is widely used in the architectural segment, for example on facades. The fine microstructure provides a deep matte, velvety appearance and a high-quality weather-resistant finish. If you don't find what you're looking for in the available color palette, IGP Pulvertechnik will prepare a unique, customized paint formulation for your project.

We are known for translating architects' designs into our products, says Anja Meerhoff, architectural consultant at IGP Pulvertechnik. - On behalf of IGP Pulvertechnik, I provide the facade industry with comprehensive, project-specific advice on advanced surface finishes for metal architectural elements, all for any project. After all, color is undoubtedly a very important element in architecture, interiors and design.
Erwin Kleuters, CEO of IGP Benelux BV, adds:
The importance and popularity of color continues to grow. Reference to specific shades is also becoming more and more common. That's why I'm proud to announce that as a licensee of Les Couleurs Suisse, IGP Pulvertechnik is the only powder coatings manufacturer in the world to add this new, unique color range to its powder coatings portfolio.
exclusive special edition
The exclusive color edition in question, available as part of the IGP-DURA®xal series, is Le Corbusier's Polychrome Architecturale, inspired by the color keyboards. Anja Meerhoff explains:
Le Corbusier was one of the leading architects of the last century. Considered the most influential architect of modernity, he was in fact much more than an architect. A true visionary and multi-talented artist, he was ahead of his time with his highly distinctive vision of color. Drawing on his extensive experience with structure, space and color, he developed a purist color palette for modern architecture. Le Corbusier's architectural polychrome is a true masterpiece and consists of a standard, harmonious system of 63 shades within two color collections: 1931 and 1959.
The 1931 collection consists of natural-looking primary colors that evoke associations with our surroundings - memories of air, sand, landscape. The 1959 collection, on the other hand, consists of more saturated colors - these shades stand out, attract the eye and change the observer's perception.
iridescent and vivid effect
The functional and aesthetic qualities of DURA®xal exude the vitality that Le Corbusier was looking for, says Anja Meerhoff, while Erwin Kleuters adds, IGP's unique technology has proven to be perfectly suited to achieving the desired look and feel - depth through the iridescent effect and velvety tactile perception.

strategic knowledge partner
It's not just about color, however.
Flawless, consistently high-quality surface finishes require expertise and experience in both the manufacturing and application processes of our powder coatings. In order to achieve such a beautiful product, innovative technologies have been used, says Erwin Kleuters, and it is equally important to ensure optimal use of our product.
That's why IGP not only advises and supports you in product and color selection, but also offers technical support in correct pretreatment methods and application techniques.
With our many years of experience and technical expertise, we are a valuable and strategic partner for our customers, designers and painters," says Anja Meerhoff. - A fundamental aspect of architectural design is selecting the best materials, techniques and systems for each project. The trick, then, is to specify them correctly to meet all quality requirements and expectations for reliability, durability and maintenance of surface finishes. This is where the added value of IGP powder coatings lies.
