Alcoa Architectural Products Introduces Paint System for ACM Panels

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Comment | More

Alcoa Architectural Products introduced Colorweld® 500, described as a proprietary fluoropolymer paint system engineered to improve the hardness and durability of the finish and to withstand the effects of processing during the manufacture of wall panels. The company says the system carries a 30-year finish warranty.

The paint system was developed by PPG Industrial Coatings, as part of the company’s program of development for the Duranar® coatings product line. James L. Anderson Jr., technical director of PPG’s COEX Americas business, said improved hardness was a priority among customers. “About three years ago we decided to concentrate on the development of a new resin system to improve the hardness of the coating; however, our breakthrough came in 2008 with our acquisition of the BASF coil business.”

 BASF had already developed a commercially ready resin system, Duranar FC, that improved the hardness and processability of its Fluoroceram® fluoropolymer coating, Anderson said. Alcoa Architectural Products said Reynobond® ACM panels with the new paint system are immediately available. A brochure detailing the engineering properties of the paint system is available upon request.

 The new paint system will replace the Colorweld 300 (Duranar) paint system previously used by Alcoa Architectural Products.

Sid R. Peterson, vice president of sales and marketing for Alcoa Architectural Products, said the increased flexibility and durability of the paint system will reduce waste attributable to scratching and pressure mottling. A number of paint colors in the new system also provide a higher degree of solar reflectivity, he said.
