High-Performance & Long-Life Exterior Architectural Coatings is part of the CPIA Webinar Series.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about how the coatings industry has come to rely on weatherable coatings to provide long-term weather protection to buildings. With an increased focus on long-lasting performance and durability, water-based Kynar Aquatec fluoropolymer-based coatings can help painting contractors exceed their clients' goals and provide the long-lasting beauty that many building owners are looking for today. Specifically, this course will cover the key components and function of weatherable fluoropolymer coatings, explain the technical reasons why they are truly high-performance and show how they compare to other coatings systems.

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

• Describe the ways Kynar Aquatec PVDF water-based coatings can provide consistent pristine appearance while achieving durability goals over multiple substrates, as demonstrated in applicable Case Studies;
• Compare PVDF coatings to other coatings in order to facilitate decision-making and select appropriate coatings for a given application and describe a new standard of performance for field-applied coatings;
• Explain why PVDF coatings technology provides long-term performance versus other coatings technologies; and
• Explain some ways in which PVDF coatings can help to achieve the sustainability goals of building owners and architects.
