Metal roofing coated with a KYNAR 500 PVDF based finish was chosen to replace the weather damaged asphalt tiles on the Lakeview Condominiums to provide years of service with virtually no maintenance. The Lakeview Condo Association hired Simpson Development to give new life to the 16 buildings, each with 8 family units, located in Enfield, New Hampshire.
KYNAR 500-based metal roofing has been widely used in severe weather areas to reduce snow loading while providing long-term durability and color retention.
Englert Inc. of Perth Amboy, NJ applied the Charcoal Permacolor finish to the 80,000 square feet of metal roofing fabricated onsite by JEI, Inc. doing business as Iron Horse Standing Seam Roofing. BASF’s ULTRA-Cool coatings, based on KYNAR 500 PVDF resin, were used and meet Energy Star specifications for cool, energy-saving roofs. The coating system reflects heat away from the building while increasing the life expectancy of the roof by reducing the expansion and contraction that decreases structural integrity and eliminates oil canning of the metal surface.
About Arkema Inc.
For over 40 years, finishes based on Arkema's Kynar 500® PVDF resin have helped protect commercial, industrial, and residential buildings around the world. Kynar 500® is a special grade of PVDF resin used by licensed industrial paint manufacturers as the base resin in long-life coatings for aluminum, galvanized steel, and aluminized steel. Applications include metal roofing and siding, window and door frames, curtain wall and other miscellaneous metal trim and components.
Arkema also offers Kynar Aquatec® coatings which use an innovative technology based on acrylic-modified Kynar® PVDF resin in a convenient emulsion form. Kynar Aquatec® coatings can be applied in the field to protect metal surfaces with a weatherable fluoropolymer based finish. This enables metal surfaces to be touched-up, repaired, or restored. A non-cool metal roof can easily be converted to a white cool roof, the color of the roof can be changed to match building décor, and faded colors can be restored. And, these coatings have good adhesion to previously coated surfaces including Kynar 500® based coatings and acrylic coatings.
