High-performance coatings backed by science
The Interzone range, from AkzoNobel’s International brand, boasts a strong in-service 40-year track record. This proof of performance aligns brilliantly with the RELEST range of blade coatings, also from the International brand, which delivers excellent UV and weathering resistance properties to combat erosion.
Both Interzone and RELEST ranges contribute to the protection of the full wind energy asset both in onshore and offshore environments as diverse as the North Sea, off the coast of Virginia Beach and the Arctic Circle.
But that’s not all. The International brand boasts a comprehensive range of coatings over and above Interzone and RELEST, which contribute to maximising the lifetime of wind turbines and their individual parts.

From harsh climates to complex environments wind energy asset owners face a range of challenges that they need to overcome. AkzoNobel offers solutions from tip to toe no matter where the project is located. Even after construction is ﬁnished, our best-in-class technical support is available. With experts solely focusing on certain parts of the turbine, we can provide knowledge and technical leadership second to none. We also offer onsite technical support to instill that ongoing feeling of comfort and trust of being fully supported throughout the process.
