DuPont Co. Inc. (Wilmington, Del.) introduced a line of premium architectural powder coatings formulated to meet the specifications of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and contribute to green-building credits under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
DuPont™ Alesta® AR architectural coatings provide a high level of design freedom and can be matched to glass, plastic, wood, or other building materials, the company says.

The AR400 version is a TGIC-free premium weathering polyester that meets AAMA 2604 specifications, and is backed by five- and 10-year warranties, and the AR500 grade is described as an ultra-premium fluoropolymer coating that meets AAMA 2605 specifications and carries 10- and 20-year warranties.
