70% PVDF paint Coatings
As a USGBC member, Linetec supports green building through our eco-friendly finishing applications, ongoing research and environmentally friendly business
practices and facilities.
Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based paint coatings have been the proven mainstay in the architectural market for decades. The leading brands include PPG Duranar, Valspar Fluropon Sherwin Williams Shernar and Akzo Nobel Trinar. The primary environmental concern with liquid paints is the solvents used to deliver the paint to the part; some of the solvents used are considered volatile organic compounds (VOC) content and must be destroyed.
VOC content when released directly into the atmosphere has been known as a contributor to ozone depletion. However, Linetec and other environmentally-conscious finishers use a 100% air capture system and destroy the VOCs with a regenerative thermal oxidizer, so there is no adverse environmental impact.
Because powder coatings lack solvents, they emit zero VOCs. Liquid coatings are made with solvents that contain VOCs, but their VOC content is off-gassed and cured at the factory before arrival on the building site. This process makes both Kynar paint and powder coating an excellent choice for any building.
If you want the color flexibility of paint, the long-term proven reliability of liquid Kynar, and an environmentally-friendly finish, you can have it all by specifying liquid paint applied with an air capture and VOC destruction system.
As an applicator of all architectural finishing technologies- paint, powder coat and anodize - Linetec is highly qualified to help you determine the best finish for your project based on coating performance, environmental considerations, and project design goals.
Linetec is fully compliant with all environmental regulations. You can verify Linetec's or any other company's compliance records on the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA's ECHO) website
