How can you assure that the beauty and colour you create for a structure – be it a mall, hospital or industrial, will last long into the future, that time and climate do not diminish the architectural vision given shape first on paper and then in place?
Nowadays, the aesthetic and durability requirements for architectural aluminium coatings are ever greater than before. One of the strongest chemical bonds known to science – the carbon-fluorine bond, gives PVDF its stubborn resistance to change by fading, chalking or erosion and its ability to resist the harshest of airborne industrial and atmospheric pollutants. Colour issues a statement, creates a mood and makes that desired first impression quickly and more effectively than almost any other architectural component. But colours' beauty can vanish. Sunlight, with harsh UV rays, can quickly turn brown to tan, red to pink and deep blue to sky blue. A proven performer for decades, Poly Vinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) can be found on monumental, high-rise, institutional, commercial, industrial, military and pre-engineered buildings throughout the world.
Its full strength resin system, in combination with extremely durable ceramic pigmentation gives this product unsurpassed performance qualities. It is appropriate for institutional use on hospitals and schools, correctional facilities, monuments, commercial office structures, industrial applications and store-fronts, when the highest performance and longest life with minimal colour fading and chalking is required. It should be specified and used wherever the highest possible performance against weathering is required. PVDF based coatings come with a warranty of 20 years, although they have been known to stay good for 50 years or even more.
