AkzoNobel's Dulux Pro brand delivered protective coating systems and technical support to applicators working on the 180,000 square metre painting contract for The Colorful Yunnan Happy World theme park in Kunming, Yunnan province, southwest China.


Painting a theme park is a complex endeavour as constant exposure to the elements and contact from visitors mean paints must be resistant to erosion. Professional artists must be able to create colours and textures resembling rock, wood and animal skin – so the paints also need to be capable of producing a variety of effects such as matte, glossy and other specialized textures.


“Theme parks are flourishing in China, and AkzoNobel, along with its product brand Dulux Pro, are among the few providers that can customize total paint solutions and services for such complexes,” said Dr. Lin Liangqi, President of AkzoNobel China. “Our clients have access to vivid colours and thorough protection, and also to customer and technical consulting services. We look forward to working with our customers to create authentic and unique experiences for visitors.”


Experts from AkzoNobel provided extensive product selection and technical support to ensure fit-for-purpose lasting colour performance and protection. Their guidance reduced the number of colours required from approximately 160 to 80 – still achieving the desired effect and level of protection, while reducing the complexity of the order and saving the customer costs during construction.


A dedicated Dulux Pro team tracked the whole process, in view of the huge volume and urgent demand for specific products. In this way, they were able to maximize efficiency and achieve a delivery period of just 50 days, a more than 50% reduction of the distribution cycle.


AkzoNobel’s solutions have been applied at other global landmarks, including the London Eye, UK, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Australia and both Brooklyn Bridge and the New York Times Building in the US.
