According to Akzo Nobel, Qlayers’ coating technology offers a fully automated solution that is safer, more consistent and faster than the manual coating processes used now in the industry. By eliminating overspray, it is regarded as a sustainable solution that saves costs.

“This collaboration with Qlayers is not only a strategic investment for AkzoNobel and our co-investor ECFG, it’s a win-win-win for us all,” says Menno van der Zalm, Global Director Innovation at Akzo Nobel.
