Tnemec Introduces Ultra-Low-VOC Fluoropolymer Coatings

Thursday, June 17, 2010

Comment | More

Great America Place, Santa-Clara, Calif.

Tnemec Company Inc. (Kansas City, Mo.) introduced ultra-low-VOC versions of its fluoropolymer coating technology with products offering VOC content of less than 100 grams per liter.

The Series 1070V Fluoronar gloss finish and Series 1071V Fluoronar semigloss formulation are described as complements to the company’s existing line of high-performance fluoropolymer coatings products.

“This line of products enables the use of fluoropolymer coatings in areas of the country where environmental regulations require low-VOC coating systems,” said Mark Thomas, Tnemec’s vice president, marketing.

The company says its fluoropolymer coatings are high-solids products offering adequate and consistent film thicknesses and application by brush, roll, or spray. Available in more than 500 colors, the coatings are described as ideally suited for high-profile architectural projects, where they offer long-term durability and color and gloss retention. Under certain conditions, the coatings may be used to restore aged fluoropolymer factory-applied coatings or in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) applications.

The low-VOC versions of the coatings have seen use on a number of projects, including the 62-story Aon Center High Rise in Los Angeles, Calif., where the existing coating system on the building was starting to chip and flake; the gloss version of the coating was specified as the finish coat. The VOC content of less than 100 g/L meets South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) regulations in the Los Angeles basin, the company says.

The coating formula also matched the building’s combination of metallic and solid-color finishes, said coatings consultant Dustin Kaatz.

Other high-profile projects where the products have been applied include the historic Chinatown Gateway in Los Angeles; the colorful North Hollywood Gateway in Los Angeles; an office renovation in Santa Clara, Calif.; and the Versailles condominiums in San Mateo, Calif.
