Sherwin-Williams introduces KEM AQUAFluor 5001 and 5002, waterborne coatings formulated with Kynar Aquatec polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin. KEM AQUAFluor_3

“Our customers can expect this coating system to outperform alternatives,” said David Calabra, director of marketing. “Formulated with Kynar Aquatec resin, our coating is designed to meet the rigid AAMA 615 requirements for superior performance coatings on plastic profiles, which includes a 10-year South Florida weathering requirement for color and gloss.”

AAMA 615 is the most rigorous of three progressively stringent standards outlining performance criteria for plastic profile coatings.

KEM AQUAFluor 5001 is a single-component, waterborne product. The KEM AQUAFluor 5002 product requires the mixing of two components. It provides additional scratch and mar resistance to withstand  cutting, punching and machining window extrusions (lineals) after finishing. This reduces the potential for damage during shipment and installation, the company says. Both products are formulated with solar reflective technology designed to reduce heat buildup in dark colors.

Calabra said other key benefits of the Kynar Aquatec PVDF resin include mold and mildew resistance, as well as resistance to rain, chemicals, dirt pick-up and detergents. Both products can be applied direct to substrate using conventional, airless, air-assisted or HVLP spray equipment.
