A new technical paper describes how polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based coatings can be combined with the hardness of acrylic to deliver durable, superior-performance coating systems that withstand the test of weather and time. End uses of PVDF resin-based, architectural coatings include providing high-performance durability for metal roofing and wall panel systems; framing for curtainwall, windows, skylights and entrance systems; louvers and grills, soffits, fascia, mullions, column covers and more.

“Companies with a strong commitment to a weathering test program and to continuous improvements, along with a long history of performance and quality products, will ensure that only high-durability pigments and resins are used, and that the product performs up to the end-users’ expectations,” said Jeff Alexander, vice president of sales, Coil and Extrusion Coating businesses.
