“While no finish can replicate all of the properties and design elements of terra cotta, we are happy to offer customers a cost-effective paint finish that looks and feels like the real thing when applied to architectural aluminum wall panels,” said Jon Close, Linetec’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Linetec's Terra Coating paint coaing As a 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based coating, Linetec’s terra cotta painted finish meets the requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s most stringent, high-performance specification standard, AAMA 2605-13. These architectural finishes are tested to exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals.

As an environmentally responsible finisher, Linetec safely captures and destroys the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in liquid paints at the factory before arrival on the building site. These industry-leading practices complement other green building choices and ensure a long-lasting, durable and sustainable finish.
