‘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 Amron Architectural one of the leading players in metal mesh for architecture and interior design. Amron mentioned the frustrations of anodic coatings and the difficulty in finding 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, launched this month. Amron is delighted with the range and used it, pre-launch, on the profiled sheet walls of the company’s stand at the Surface Design Show in February 2022. Using ‘Callisto’ from the Satellite range, the undulating surface of the profiled sheet was wonderfully enhanced as light bounced off the glittering finish.

Satellite finishes are suitable for internal and external applications and can be applied to most metallic substrates. It is a range that stands along-side anodising, bronzes and golds as a high quality, flexible, unique and economic finish with excellent durability and colour stability.
