Arkema to Introduce New Kynar Aquatec® Specification Guides for Façade Restoration and Cool Roof Coatings at METALCON 2017

- Press release
Products
Arkema Inc. will present its Kynar 500® FSF® and Kynar Aquatec® polyvinylidene fluoride resins used in high-performance coatings, along with Bostik’s hurricane-resistant adhesive products, at METALCON 2017, to be held October 18–21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Kynar 500® FSF® resin-based coatings for aluminum, galvanized steel and aluminized steel exceed the exterior AAMA 2605 specification for resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals. This next-generation Kynar 500® PVDF technology can also contribute to LEED® credits, as it is produced using a patented fluorosurfactant-free process.  

Kynar Aquatec® PVDF emulsions provide the same long-lasting protection as Kynar 500® resin-based coatings in an easy-to-apply waterborne form. Given their excellent weatherability and exceptional resistance to dirt pickup and biological growth, Kynar Aquatec® resin-based coatings offer a high-performance solution for metal restoration and repair projects, as well as a variety of other applications.

At the show, Arkema Inc. will introduce its new Kynar Aquatec® specification guides for façade restoration and cool roof coatings applications. Each 14-page guide is divided into the Construction Specifier Institute’s three-part format and written in concise language to facilitate the evaluation of coating systems for meeting a metal restoration or cool-roof project’s long life, durability and sustainability goals.  

During the event, Bostik, an Arkema company, will also present its full line of “smart adhesives” and sealants for a wide variety of metal construction applications. These high-performance products provide unprimed adhesion to Kynar 500® FSF® and Kynar Aquatec® resin-based coatings, are hurricane-strong (Miami-Dade County hurricane-approved) and come with a best-in-class warranty.

Stop by the Arkema exhibit (booth 923) to learn more about how Kynar® resin-based coatings and Bostik adhesives and sealants deliver outstanding performance and durability in a wide variety of applications. The new specification guides on field-applied fluoropolymer coatings for façade and roof restoration and cool-roof applications will also be available.
