Rem oving toxic waste from the application process
Sustainable design in practice

Unlike competing products, there is no toxic waste or sludge created during the application process, so you can rest assured you are making the environmentally responsible choice, for you and your client.

Polychem launches Barely There Collection
Soft neutrals with a touch of color for interiors

Polychem recently launched the  beautiful Polychem Barely There Collection - 10 soft white or neutral shades with a hint of color that is 'Barely There'.

Created using Polychem's signature polyester technology perfect for interior applications, the Barely There Collection features gorgeous shades from 'Satin Sea Sprite', a delicate white with a hint of the ocean, to a pale rose and a soft neutral Swiss Coffee. 

"The Barely There Collection is a new favorite" commented Lauren Bayer, Polychem Manager. "We've introduced it to both designers and coaters and they love that the colors look like a simple neutral, but slowly the eye picks up the hint of the color that is barely there. They are a great way to add interest to a palette"

The Polychem Barely There Collection is available in flexible quantities as low as 5lb, with free sample panels available.

Glynn Mason, IFS and Polychem President adds "We are constantly looking at color trends and while calming, neutral hues will always be a staple base, this collection allows a little more creativity in using those shades. It's already a popular collection with requests for more barely there colors already received."

For more information or a Barely There color ring, please call Lauren on 940.612.0401 or email labyer@ifscoatings.com

Chrome effect powders dazzle designers
No one can deny that chrome looks great and is used repeatedly on interior pieces including furniture, pop ups, accessories and more. It's also a fact that chrome is bad for the environment. Period.

The IFS R&D team has created a great range of chrome effect powder coatings designed to mimic the look of chrome, without the environmental impact. Perfect for interior applications, the chrome effect powders can be used with or without a clear coat. For your set of free sample panels, contact Lauren on lbayer@ifscoatings.com.

IF S lights up with Ultralights
Finding the right lighting for a design project is important. Having a large choice of product, finish and diffuser obviously makes that decision so much easier. Ultralights offer an enormous range of beautiful, American made, handcrafted, high quality lamps and lighting options, all of which are protected and decorated with IFS powder coatings.

Working closely with architectural and design professionals, Ultralights offers creative flexibility and the ability to modify stock products to meet specification requirements, quickly. Over 200 products are available and designers can then choose from 13, carefully created IFS powders to coat all the metal exterior parts and lend the lighting a sophisticated edge.

Chris Bedwell, Ultralight Business Development Manager commented "We are extremely proud of the Ultralights range, and ensuring our handcrafted products are made from the best quality materials - including the powder coating finish, is really important to us. We work hard to ensure our customers are happy with every part of their interaction with us, so we also fully appreciate excellent service when we receive it. We know we will always receive great product and great service whenever we work with IFS."
