Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) Dulux, a leading decorative paints brand by AkzoNobel, showcased two key innovations in interior and exterior paint products; Dulux EasyCare & Weathershield PowerFlexx respectively at IAPEX – the international exhibition of building materials & international architectural conference of leading manufacturers and traders, attended by prominent architects, allied professionals and thousands of visitors every year.
For exterior paints, Dulux Weathershield Powerflexx features superior protection and performance through its elastomeric properties and the ability to cover hairline cracks on walls as well as the ability to reflect UV rays, reducing exterior wall surface temperatures up to 5⁰C. For interior paints, Dulux EasyCare with anti-bacterial properties works to prevent and delay stains from penetrating deep into the paint film through a stain-resistant coating.
At the event, AkzoNobel also announced the winner of the Dulux Lets Colour Award 2018 – an annual award handed out to an architectural or interior design project that utilizes color in the most innovative manner.
