Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish is a fluoropolymer Coating System. The secret of fluoropolymer’s remarkable properties lies in its molecular structure; the carbon/fluorine bond (one of the strongest known to man) is the key to the coating’s unsurpassed thermal, chemical and ultraviolet resistance.
Kynar 500® resin-based coatings outperform polyester, urethane, silicone polyester and acrylic coatings in every category: better color retention, resistance to chalking, fading, peeling and cracking. This revolutionary protective coating ensures your roof will have vibrant color and maximum resistance to the harsh weather elements.
Finishes Diagram – Kynar 500® Thermobond
Thermobond is a textured Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish designed to give the natural hues of real wood. This beautiful finish is far superior to other granulated finishes because there are no granules to rub off or wear away. Unlike other textured finishes that have granules glued on, there’s no glue to fail. The granulation is applied through an electrostatic coating process with real Kynar 500®, so it is part of the coating. The granulation is guaranteed to last a lifetime.
HI-R Kynar 500® Heat Barrier Coatings
HI-R Heat Barrier coatings combine durable Kynar 500® with reflective pigment technology to create the highest quality coating on the market. These special coatings reflect more infrared light and heat than standard Kynar 500®. The complex chemical structure of these pigments reflects away the infrared portion of the sun’s rays most responsible for heat build up. So while maintaining color consistency and fade protection, HI-R Heat Barrier technology provides all the advantages of greater reflectance, without sacrificing color choices. These HI-R coatings have solar reflectance as high as 46%. Choose the color of roof you want without the worry of a warm house. When a metal roof coated with HI-R Heat Barrier Coating reflects away the sun’s heat, the attic space below, and thus the entire building stays much cooler. A cooler building means an impressive reduction in energy bills!
