The architects at SOM describe, “Transitions in the exterior composition are expressed as a series of setbacks that twist around the tower. Terraces at each setback create outdoor gardens that become smaller and more frequent toward the top of the tower. Clad in limestone and glass, the building’s facade unifies the variety of programmatic elements stacked within. 35 Hudson Yards is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.”

The exterior façade was coated with AkzoNobel’s Global Certified Interpon Powder Coating system. One of the two coating’s systems used was the hyper-durable Interpon D3020 Fluoromax® Series.

With outstanding proven performance, Interpon D3020 Fluoromax® was formulated to withstand the toughest environments while creating a greener, cleaner alternative to traditional liquid PVDF coatings. Featuring outstanding weather resistance, the system meets the requirements of AAMA2605, the most demanding fenestration coating – architectural specification in the world.

The Interpon D3020 system is enriched with Lumiflon FEVE resin technology. When applied to an architectural surface, coatings that utilize Lumiflon FEVE resin technology protect structures from UV radiation, salt, water, and other elemental deterrents that contribute to coating degradation. The coatings also contain color and gloss retention properties, which helps prevent fading and chalking.
