‘Satellite’ – Powdertech’s unique lustrous finish with an iridescent gleam

A brand-new beautiful collection of powder coated finishes has arrived on the scene. Called ‘Satellite’, these are unique finishes developed by the innovative powder coating company, Powdertech Corby Ltd. The range is made exclusively for Powdertech to the company’s visual and technical requirements and conforms to BS EN 12206-1 standards and Qualicoat specifications.

Satellite finishes have a distinctive iridescent gleam with layered metallic and pearlescent effects and a depth of colour unrivalled in a one-coat application. As Richard Besant, Director, Powdertech, explains, “The name ‘Satellite’ came once we saw the initial samples. The mid-sheen finish with vibrant flashes of light set in a rich colour is so intense that it looked like a million satellites in the sky, the range name was obvious once we saw it. The individual names are taken from the hundreds of man-made satellites that orbit the Earth, so we have plenty of options as the range expands.”

Development of the range arose from a casual conversation between Powdertech and one of the leading players in metal mesh for architecture and interior design. It was clear that there were frustrations with anodic coatings and the need was there to develop a powder coating that offers a similar depth of colour and layered iridescent effect to anodising. That set the Powdertech team thinking and the result was the Satellite range. Our customer is delighted with the range and featured it on their profiled sheet products that formed the walls of the company’s stand at the Surface Design Show in 2022.

The range currently features Callisto, Fengyun, Secor, Ariane, Porcupine and Scatha. These are bronze and gold finishes which have a unique depth of finish, mesmerism and reaction to sunlight.

Powdertech has developed 10 product collections over the last 20-years and continue to develop shades, effects and textures that stay ahead of the curve. Wood effects, stone, rust and terracotta finishes, new Collections include Zest, a range of mouth-watering energetic shades bringing added pizzazz to any project, and Freeform a range that is unique to you, in that it is actually designed by each individual customer. If you have a design or text or even an image in mind, then Freeform can bring it to life.

If you would like to meet the team, Powdertech will be exhibiting at SDS2023 on February 7th to 9th at the Business Design Centre, London.
