Immerse into the colors of the world

The world is color. Water, soil, air, forests, oceans, meadows, fruit, mountains. But also streets, cities, factories, machines, houses. Every living environment, every object is composed of its own distinctive shades of color. The way we perceive a color depends on countless factors. The yellow of a zebra crossing is not the yellow of a leaf in fall. Each world of color has its own feel, character, and texture. IGP Powder Coatings embraces inspirations from all imaginable objects and colors and translates them into powder coatings.

A photo, an object, a natural feature – whatever the model and whatever the desired color, we reproduce any color palette in our lab. Yet it’s about more than just creating a shade that’s as close as possible to the original.

One of the greatest challenges for powder coatings is ensuring top color stability even on surfaces exposed to wind, weather, sunlight, or mechanical stress. Our color experts take inspiration from nature or objects and capture the look in powder coatings, while providing the quality required for each area of application.

The art of color formulation
Finding the right formula for a color is an art composed of many intricate steps. Our aim in the laboratory is to reproduce shades as precisely as possible. IGP experts know the factors that influence the perception of a color and that determine the ideal formula. These include light, angle of reflection, effects, and gloss as well as structure and haptic surface quality.

There are up to twenty different physical components that can alter a shade, for example pigments, binders, additives, colorants, and filling compounds. With the correct composition of ingredients, our color specialists achieve results that precisely match the shade as well as the texture and haptic qualities required.

Unique competence in real-life shades
Our current Immersion campaign brings to life our company’s strengths in powder coatings based on a corporate history that gives us more than 50 years' experience. We looked to the natural world for inspiration: a vineyard, a cornfield, an ocean bay, the Australian Outback. The results of our meticulous work are base shades that transport worlds of color. Every nuance of the true colors comes to life.

The campaign illustrates the competence of IGP Powder Coatings to the processing industry around the globe. We immerse ourselves completely into widely diverse worlds and take the observer along on our journey. Inspired by these environments, we create shades that meet the mark in terms of quality, color, and feel. Unique for every world, unique for every surface.
