Color of the Year 2022 rolls in with the breeze for AkzoNobel coil coatings

Architects, fabricators, and coaters looking for on-trend coil and extrusion coatings to differentiate their projects are about to get a breath of fresh air. Bright SkiesTM, AkzoNobel’s Color of the Year 2022, is also available in coatings for building and construction metal.

After a spell of feeling shut in, people are craving expansion. Extensive global trend research conducted by a team of in-house paints and coatings color experts and international design professionals reveals that we want open air, connections to the great outdoors, and a fresh approach to everything.

“Our customers trust us to understand what they need and to deliver it,” says Rob Haley, Color Trends Manager for AkzoNobel’s Industrial Coatings business. “Backed by centuries of experience and innovation, we know how to use our global scale to leverage the AkzoNobel color and design expertise across market segments. Color of the Year is a great example of how we do that.”

Customers can count on many options for a timeless aesthetic and long-lasting design. Together with the light and airy shade of Bright Skies, four complementary color palettes offer inspiration beyond the usual mainstream shades. The Studio palette offers soulful, warm, and modern tones; the Salon palette embraces artful qualities; the Greenhouse palette revels in nature’s influence; the Workshop palette creates flexibility in multifunctional spaces.

Highly trained color experts around the world make these colors for each customer in the correct product quality for the job at hand. They can also help customers find close-matching and on-tone colors in our standard assortment.

“Our high-quality coil and extrusion products from brands like AkzoNobel, POLYDURE®, CERAM-A-STAR®, and TRINAR® are the best performing in the market,” says Haley. “They are widely specified and used for their excellent performance, durability, color and gloss retention.”
