What is PVDF?

Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) contains one of the strongest bonds known to man. So it's no surprise that PVDF resin-based coating systems offer the longest-lasting performance available.

Fluropon is a 70% PVDF liquid metal coating system for metal building products that meets AAMA 2065 standards. PVDF metal paints are baked-on finishes that are coil coated or spray applied to aluminum extrusions in-factory.

PVDF coating systems are most appropriate for monumental and high-end residential and commercial architecture as they provide superior color and gloss retention.
