What? 

The CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Select program is comprised of 41 of the most popular coil industry colors.

Developed specifically for use with CERAM-A-STAR® 1050, the market-leading silicone-modified polyester (SMP) coating, CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Select ensures the same exceptional product performance and warranty, now with the benefit of a standard color palette program.

Why is it needed?

With the CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Select color program, businesses across the coil coating industry can look forward to improved product availability, concentrated color volumes and quicker turns on projects.

What are its uses?

For coil coaters:
  • Reduces overall complexity and drives volume and demand of standard colors
  • Longer runs of popular colors and less color switch-outs
  • Improved productivity as customer orders are driven by standard color options.

For service centers and developers of painted coils:
  • Enhances operational efficiency by reducing color complexity and increasing demand for high-moving colors

For OEMs and regional rollformers:
  • Helps to drive targeted color selection and customer satisfaction through enhanced performance and product availability.

Why is it important?

Manoel Rodrigues, Regional Commercial Director, Metal Coatings, Americas says "The CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Select standard color palette program is our latest advancement in the high performance coil coating market. It enables each step of the value chain to improve product availability and reduce inventory costs through targeted color selections. This in turn speeds up the process on projects and enhances concentrated color volume and consistency."


The CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Select color program is further supported by AkzoNobel’s suite of digital color tools, accessed through its Canopy app. Canopy includes information and tools on color section, color sensor integration, RAL standard search, and color visualization as well as standard color palette tools.
