With this new center of excellence, Stahl strengthens its position as supplier for environmentally cautious UV and ULB powder coatings for heat-sensitive substrates for interior and architectural applications. The strategic location of this knowledge and testing center enables Stahl to accelerate its services for the main European markets.

Development of environmentally friendly powder coatings

The center of excellence for powder coatings is the result of the takeover of the R&D facilities of OEM NuTech, an Australian-based expert in the development of powder-coating products and processes specific for heat-sensitive materials, in May this year. Stahl and OEM NuTech have been working together intensively in a joint venture since July 2015. During this cooperation, they have created a unique system for the development of high-quality and eco-friendly powder coatings.

Eight centers of excellence worldwide

With the new facility in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Stahl has eight centers of excellence worldwide where its experts work side-by-side with partners to develop and test new applications for specific areas and industries. The center of excellence for powder coatings is located at one of Stahl’s two manufacturing sites in Barcelona.
