The Shard, a new development in the London Bridge quarter already dominating the
London skyline, is now the tallest building in Western Europe. It boasts coating protection
from eight different Interpon products applied by approved applicators Josef Gartner and
Höfer (Germany) and SAS International (UK). Interpon D1036 and Interpon 810 coatings

D2525 range offer superior protection to the exterior aluminium structure.
