RegaLead back from exceptional Glasstec!

Reinforcing its position as Europe’s leading supplier of decorative products for the glass and fenestration industries, RegaLead put on a show with style at this year’s Glasstec. Showcasing the very latest solutions to add value to flat glass, visitors to the show were once again impressed with what RegaLead had to offer.

Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director of RegaLead, comments: “This year we were in Hall 10, which was definetly one of the busiest halls throughout the entire show. Our range of value-added products aimed at for the glass processing and architectural glazing sector generated a huge level of interest from around the world and we came back with enquiries from over 50 countries. North American enquiries were particularly strong this year which reinforces our decision to open our own sales and distribution site in Canada in late 2017”

“Two products really stole the show, the first of which being our newly launched MirrorCoat; a high reflectance value, solvented, mirror effect, which can be applied via either manual or automated spray. The second big hit was our new range of decorative inserts for use with EVA laminated glass. We used Glasstec as a platform to get some valuable market feedback on the proposed range which included large format screen printed patterns, high quality die sublimated imagery, PDLC “switchable” glass film, and a range of cost effective paper and fabrics for internal decorative applications. The introduction of the Decorative Inserts for laminated glass is a significant milestone in our journey from being a supplier of predominantly domestic decorative glass solutions into the architectural field”

RegaLead is back at Windoor

Global specialist in coatings and doorlites RegaLead, is back at Windoor, this time in conjunction with Schuberts Technical Services Ltd, the market leader in smart drying solutions.

Recognised as Europe’s Number 1 coatings supplier for vinyl/PVC and fiber glass/steel doors, RegaLead will not only be showcasing its range of ultra-low VOC, mix-on-demand paint solutions, but with Schubert’s support, visitors to BOOTH 507 will see ‘start to finish’ turnkey solutions for coatings and finishing, including a new range of woodstain effects, smart booth drying systems and everything required for a company to bring door spray painting in-house.

RegaLead, which last year invested more than $1,000,000 CAN in its new RegaLead (Canada) Ltd Vaughan facility, has continuously researched and developed coatings that withstand the rigours of the Canadian markets. This includes its ultra-low VOC Omnicoat paint, a 2 pack PUD formulation that incorporates nano-particle technology. Fully tested to AAMA 1506-18, it also utilises IRR pigments for Cool Colour formulations. The company believes its USP is its mix-on-demand offering, allowing customers access to over 10,000 colors in-house, minimising waste, reducing lead times for color and thus addressing one of the industry’s biggest challenges.

Sharing the Booth with RegaLead is Schubert’s Technical Services Ltd, the global leader in low energy, gas catalytic drying systems. With up to 80% lower operational costs compared with electrical equivalents, and typical drying times for fiber glass doors using either traditional solvent 2k or water-based RegaLead coatings of between 20-30 minutes, the Schuhbox® has proven itself across the globe.

Guy Hubble, RegaLead’s Joint Managing Director comments:

Both RegaLead and Schuberts are firmly committed to developing innovation within the Canadian coating and drying market. We recently appointed York Towne Supplies of Richmond Hill, ONT, as distributors for Ontario, but we’re actively seeking distributors and agents across the country to work with us on delivering world class coating solutions for the fenestration industry.

RegaLead at Windoor 2017 to underpin launch of RegaLead Canada

RegaLead, the global company renowned for adding value to glass, windows and doors through decoration, will be back at Windoor 2017. This year, in addition to launching new paint and doorlite innovations, the company has something special to celebrate – the opening of RegaLead Canada in Vaughan, Ontario. The business will be headed up by Ricardo Figueredo who has been RegaLead’s Export Manager for the last 8 years.

Joint MD Guy Hubble comments: “Over the last 30 years, RegaLead has evolved through product development and acquisition from a purely decorative component supplier to become the global leading force in doorlites and coatings for the fenestration industry. As a reflection of the growing importance of the Canadian and US markets, we’ve decided the time is now right for us to put down physical roots in these territories. Windoor 2017 is the perfect platform for us to tell the North American markets that RegaLead Canada has opened its doors and is ready to do business.

“Visitors to Booth 267 will see our stunning range of doorlites including new designs. Also on show will be the market leading ColorSpray paint system. Launched in Europe last year, ColorSpray Aqua, our innovative water-based paint system will be taking centre stage at the show. Developed using a Nanoparticle pure acrylic binder for improved adhesion, ColorSpray Aqua is available in pre-mixed or mix on demand giving access to 1000s of colours. Significantly, it also has VOC levels <1% as calculated by ASTM D3960 and complies with Green Seal standards.

“As one of the world’s longest established and largest providers of coatings and doorlites, customers trust us to provide high quality products with great service. We look forward to bringing our latest innovations to Windoor 2017, and beyond that, to the whole of North America thanks to RegaLead Canada.”
