Architectural Paint Types
Linetec is a fully approved and licensed applicator of PPG, Valspar, Sherwin Williams and Akzo Nobel, the leading manufacturers of high-performance architectural fluoropolymer coatings, often referred to as Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based coating.
Linetec offers a variety of architectural paints including 70% Kynar 500 PVDF resin-based coatings, which meets the AAMA 2605 specification, 50% Kynar PVDF resin-based coatings,
which meet the AAMA 2604 specification and baked enamels which meet AAMA 2603.
70% PVDF (Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000® ) 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. Kynar 500® is a registered trademark belonging to Arkema Inc.
70% PVDF resin-based coatings include standard color two-coat systems, consisting of a primer and color coat. Two-coat mica systems, also consisting of a primer and color coat. Three-coat and four-coat systems for metallic and exotic colors. These systems include a clear top coat and sometimes a barrier coat.
The clear top coat is an essential component of three and four coat systems. It provides added protection against ultraviolet, humidity and chemical attack. A clear top coat is required for bright/exotic colors and all colors containing metallic flake.
50% PVDF (Kynar® or Hylar® ) resin-based coatings offer an intermediate coating. This finish provides good color and gloss retention. It also offers good hardness and abrasion resistance, making it a good choice for storefront, doors, or other high-traffic areas.
50% PVDF resin-based coatings include standard color two-coat systems and two-coat mica systems, both consisting of a primer and color coat.
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.
