“The release of RAL 1035 – Pearl Beige and RAL 1036 – Pearl Gold expands our RAL offerings and is an example of our desire to continually expand our powder coating offerings for our customers,” explained Craig Dietz, Axalta Product Manager. “Our customers require attractive and durable powder coatings in a variety of hues and we intend to provide them just that.”

RAL 1035 and 1036 deliver a smooth, glossy coverage with excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance. These RAL colors are TGIC–free and contain virtually no volatile organic compounds or targeted hazardous air pollutants, making them a sustainable, environmentally responsible solution.

All of Axalta’s RAL powder coatings meet the stringent American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s 2603 standards and are designed to lower energy consumption, increase productivity, and reduce costs to the coater. Improved storage stability, coverage and transfer efficiency create uniform coverage on parts and make it easier to fill in scratches and reduce excessive thickness.
