Axalta to Co-present at International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition in Las Vegas

Presentation Will Discuss Axalta's AquaEC 6100 NSF-51 Approval

GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, will co-present NSF-51 Food Grade Coatings for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Equipment with Metal Processing International (MPI) at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The presentation will take place in Theatre A of the Las Vegas Convention Center at 1:45 p.m. PST on Wednesday, February 1. Jeff Paxon, Axalta Area Sales Manager, will discuss Axalta’s AquaEC™ 6100™, North America’s first and only e-coat to achieve NSF-51 Standard compliance.

Electrocoat epoxy coatings are widely used for corrosion protection of evaporator and condenser coils, and other heat exchangers. Axalta’s new tin-free epoxy coating technology is now certified by National Sanitation Foundation per NSF-51 Standard Food Equipment Materials. This development is meaningful for suppliers of commercial refrigeration, restaurant and hotel HVAC equipment and indoor evaporators who are concerned with indoor air quality in homes.

“We are excited to discuss the recent NSF-51 certification of Axalta’s AquaEC 6100, which complements our existing compliance with NSF-61 for a variety of Axalta e-coat and powder coatings,” said Michael Stuhldreher, Axalta Market Development Manager. “Together with our partner, MPI, we’ll have the chance to directly engage manufacturers and end-users of food equipment-related HVAC products, for whom this compliance presents immediate opportunities including value-added corrosion protection and other product improvements.”

In MPI booth #C6300 at the AHR Expo on January 30-February 2 , Axalta will promote its high-performance, corrosion-resistant range of products that are ideal for the HVAC industry, such as AquaEC electrodeposition coatings, Alesta® powder coatings and Voltatex® electrical insulation finishes.
