AkzoNobel films (previously called Soliant) is part of AkzoNobel Specialty Coatings, which offers decorative solutions for the transportation and consumer goods markets. These films are an alternative to liquid paints or chrome plating as an example. Our AkzoNobel paintfilms, marketed under the Fluorex or Intura brand, are durable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly, with unique design possibilities not possible with traditional basecoat/topcoat systems. Paintfilms are an excellent choice for a wide range of special effects including printing, texturing, two-tones, metallics and pearlescence. They stand up to harsh weather conditions, and are resistant to chipping, UV radiations, and harsh chemicals. The films are also 100% recyclable.

AkzoNobel films are available for both interior and exterior applications. Fluorex Brightfilms provide the look of chrome, but without the health and environmental hazards of products containing chromium. They are used in automotive interior and exterior applications, as well as in the consumer electronics and home appliance markets. Brightfilm is available in chrome, tinted chrome and brushed chrome finishes.

Fluorex Paintfilm is the film alternative to traditional spray application systems where a full palette of colors are possible including metallic, pearlescent, and even anodized finishes. The technology utilizes the same types of pigments as our spray-applied systems in combination with chemical and weather resistant resins; affording decoration possibilities for current automotive applications.
