APV Engineered Coatings has launched a new line of primer and topcoat systems under the NeverFade® brand name for restoration of architectural metal structures such as wall panels, window and door frames, roofs, railings, overhangs and decorative features. Available in solvent- and water-based formulations, the new NeverFade® Façade Restoration coatings are ideal for use with carbon steel, stainless steel, bare aluminum and anodized aluminum. These robust coating systems resist UV degradation, abrasion, corrosion, mold growth, dirt and staining.
The product line’s water-based metal restoration coatings are formulated with Kynar Aquatec® emulsion from Arkema. It meets SCAQMD Rule 1113 VOC limits in Southern California for industrial maintenance coatings, with only 40-100 grams/liter of VOCs, depending on color. The coating can be used with APV’s complementary W-1650 bonding primer for previously coated fluoropolymer surfaces, such as Kynar 500® resin-based coatings. The primer contains 50 grams/liter of VOCs, meeting SCAQMC Rule 1113 VOC limits for Southern California of 100 grams/liter of VOCs.
The solvent-based metal restoration coatings are formulated with Kynar ADS® II resin from Arkema. It dries in 10-15 minutes and sets up and hardens quickly.
All NeverFade® Façade Restoration formulas are available in flat, eggshell, and semi-gloss sheens.
