Formula1 is a very demanding environment, and at AkzoNobel we are constantly developing and refining our coatings. The things we 'Create Together' from our partnership with McLaren ultimately lead to new paints and coatings technologies for the cars we see on the road.
Research, Development and Innovation at AkzoNobel is as much an art as a science. Formula1 places huge demands on the paint and coatings we develop. For instance, low weight and fast baking times. Add to this color consistency, reduced emissions, and the need to be visually striking, and the Sikkens technicians really have their work cut out.
