UPDATE: Organisers of Fensterbau Frontale have announced that the next trade fair will take place in 2022. We look forward it!
As a sustainable supply partner and employer with responsibilities to both our international workforce and the wider global community, Teknos fully supports Fensterbau Frontale’s decision to postpone the March trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
With the increase in cases of the Coronavirus and its progression to previously unaffected countries, Teknos is also taking precautions to minimise its spread. Teknos CEO, Paula Salastie and her senior management team have taken the lead in this, suspending all but essential travel for Teknos staff and giving advice on extra hygiene care to protect employees.
Despite these challenges, Teknos will still be introducing customers to a number of exciting new exterior products over the coming months. Currently working on their plans, Teknos will provide product application and technical data, online information and video which brings the Teknos Fensterbau experience direct to customers’ desks.
One of their showpieces will be TEKNOFINISH HAILRESIST 4800. This product is an innovative hail resistant topcoat, with a hail class rating of HW3 and a unique film technology that flexes on impact, preventing the coating from cracking. It is ideal for windows, doors and cladding.
In their continual pursuit of more efficient production processes for customer lines, Teknos are also launching TEKNOCLAD 3370 & 3371, a direct-to-wood, cladding coating that is extremely fast-drying and has excellent block-resistance. Fire protection for cladding has very much been in the spotlight recently and for customers looking for an intumescent primer, TEKNOSAFE 2407 is classified B-s1,d0 according to EN13501-1 and works by forming an insulating carbon foam char that prevents the spread of flame.
Amongst the non-wood coating highlights is HYDROPUR 2K COLOR, a hard-wearing opaque coating for uPVC windows and GRP doors. For metal facades, the INFRALIT range offers powder coatings with high UV resistance, GSB and Qualicoat certifications and enhanced effect finishes such as snakeskin.
Teknos is taking a proactive approach to customers whom they had expected to be meeting at the Fensterbau Frontale to ensure they do not miss out on these products and the latest innovations in coatings. Teknos team members are in touch with customers to rearrange meetings where risks related to the virus remain low and in other areas, they will provide updates by phone, video call and email, followed by a meeting once the virus risk has subsided. Coated samples of many Teknos products will be available, so customers are encouraged to ask their Teknos account manager if they have any specific questions or requirements.
