McLaren Racing’s 2021 Formula 1 car will again feature AkzoNobel’s high-performance coatings, following an extension to the long-standing partnership which debuted in 2008.
As official paints and coatings partner, AkzoNobel is providing its Sikkens vehicle refinish products for all painted parts of the MCL35M, as well as the team’s transport, garage and accessories.
In addition, the company’s marine and protective coatings business is also supplying Intertherm 50 heat-shielding from its International product range for critical components surrounding the engine and exhaust.
Patrick Bourguignon, director of AkzoNobel’s automotive and specialty coatings business says: “We’re very proud to extend our successful partnership with McLaren Racing, which is driven by collaboration, innovation and the pursuit of high performance.
“We’re all extremely enthusiastic to see our Sikkens and International coatings in action on the MCL35M this season and can’t wait for the scheduled return of F1 racing to the Netherlands in September.”
