Urban Furniture

Durable and graffiti-resistant coatings for street furniture and lamp posts

Urban furniture is extremely vulnerable to corrosion caused by acid rain, air pollution, road salt, high temperature variations, condensation and, in cities and towns, dog fouling. Damage is even more severe at sea side, where sun, salt, wind and humidity attack the metal very aggressively. The lower part of furniture is particularly exposed to salt and dog fouling – and must withstand higher mechanical stress as well.

Once corrosion starts, it is virtually impossible to stop. Replacing the asset is the only alternative to prevent its eventual collapse, unless you protect it from the beginning with Axalta thermoplastic powders.
