System Aluminium Facade

Palace View is an exclusive, eight-storey development on London’s South Bank in an exposed position close to the river Thames and busy roads. The exterior of the building required a robust coating to withstand these conditions without corroding. Powdertech’s 6-stage chrome-free pre-treatment process for aluminium ensures that the metal is already protected before the final coating is applied. IGP ‘Young Bronze’ was used for 2400 sq metres of façade elements – balcony soffit and fascia panels, canopy soffit, roof capping, louvres, drain pipes and rain water hoppers. Powdertech is an approved applicator for IGP powders.
