Powder Coating System Evolution ‘Molten Rain’
Aluminium System Perforated aluminium panels

Architects Brimelow McSweeney, wanted a particularly eye-catching new coating for facades and panelling enclosing the courtyard space and its entrances. The objective was a finish that would appear to change in colour and tone with the changing daylight. Powdertech Corby developed a bespoke textured red/gold powder coating within its Evolution™ range, a collection that reflects the beauty of natural metals and metal patination.

Around 500 m2 of flat and perforated aluminium façade were coated in ‘Molten Rain’. Large petal shapes formed by perforations in the aluminium are illuminated by light-boxes at night to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
