Axalta’s Powder Coatings Provide Sound Barriers for Shanghai’s New Metro Line

Posted on : 26 May, 2017


China’s rapidly growing high-speed rail transportation has also accelerated demand for future high-speed systems to operate quietly and sustainably.


As such Shanghai’s new Metro Line 17 will use Axalta-Huajia Coatings’ – powder coatings that ensure sound barrier, superior corrosion resistance and durability. Axalta-Huajia Coatings is expected to collaborate with SHAZC Group for the metro project – that will use premium powder coating – Alesta® AR that promises to protect the sound management structures along the Qingpu section of the line.


Axalta-Huajia Coatings is a joint venture between Axalta Coating Systems (AXTA) and Huangshan Yongjia Group Co.


The coating used in the metro line features architectural grade fluoropolymer powder coating technology compliant with the most stringent exterior performance standards of the architectural industry. In addition, Axalta’s AR500-UD series of products also feature environmentally responsible formulations and ultra-low VOC to offer excellent protection and high color accuracy as well as gloss-stability along with easy-care, easy-clean and anti-graffiti properties.


Axalta has worked with China’s rail transportation industry previously. Axalta’s coating solutions are used in the high-speed trains of Harbin Dalian railway, as well as on trains in the extension section of Tianjin Urban Rail Line 1 and the Beijing Metro Line 15.


However, Axalta’s Alesta AR powder coatings is being used for the first time in China’s railways.


More on use of powder coatings will be discussed at 17th Asia Coatings Markets on 24-25 August, 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand.
