Overview

Kynar 500 – Meets AAMA 2605

70% PVDF (Kynar 500®) resin-based coatings offer the ultimate protection in building performance. These finishes exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals. These sustainable coatings will ensure a long-lasting, durable finish. No other coating system can withstand the rigors of nature and time like those based on the Kynar 500 resin. 70% PVDF resin-based coatings include standard color two-coat systems, consisting of a primer and color coat.

Powder Coat – Meets AAMA 2605

Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues.

Baked Enamel – Meets AAMA 2603

Baked enamel coatings are harder than PVDF coatings and are often used for interior application where color retention, chalk, fade and weatherability is not required. Baked enamels are generally a one-coat system as no primer is required. In this process the color coat is applied directly to the aluminum.

Anodized – Meets AAMA 611 Class I

Anodizing is the process of electrochemically controlling, accelerating and enhancing oxidation of an aluminum substrate. The anodizing process, because it is an integral part of the substrate, produces an oxide film that is uniform, hard and protects the rest of the aluminum substrate from deterioration – providing excellent wear and abrasion resistance with minimal maintenance in most environments.

The coating produced is extremely durable, and the hardness of the surface is comparable to a sapphire—the second hardest substance on earth. This characteristic makes anodize an excellent choice for use in high-traffic areas where resistance properties are important.

Anodized aluminum resists the ravages of time, temperature, corrosion, humidity and warping, adding to it’s long life cycle. Anodized aluminum is an inert material that is not combustible, 100% recyclable and poses no health risks.
