Axalta's Dura Coat Products to Launch Durapon 70HS PVDF Spray for Aluminum Extrusion Industry
Dura Coat, an Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA) company, announces its launch of Durapon 70TM HS-PVDF spray technology, which is designed for the aluminum extrusion industry. Available in a variety of colors including metallic and exotic finishes, Durapon 70 is recommended for architectural and industrial applications such as windows, curtain walls, railings, trims, and fascia.
Based on a unique proprietary resin system that incorporates 70 percent polyvinylidine fluoride, Durapon 70 HS is formulated as a premium finish to deliver superior protection from acid rain and corrosive environments. Its improved rheology delivers a smooth finish and higher volume solids to provide dirt and stain resistance.
“We are excited to officially introduce Durapon 70 HS to our customer base,” said Dan Knight, Vice President and General Manager for Dura Coat Products. “This innovative product features little solvent reduction for spray applications to reduce applied costs by 25 percent and ultimately save our customers’ time and money.”
Durapon 70 delivers exceptional corrosion protection and meets AAMA 2605-13 certification requirements when applied as a two-coat primer and finish system by certified applicators to properly cleaned and pretreated aluminum extrusions. Dura Coat currently uses Durapon 70HS PVDF spray for monumental and commercial architectural buildings to enhance the corrosion resistance of pre-treated aluminum for curtain and wall panels within the high-rise market.
