Fluropon coatings are ideally suited for long-life external use on monumental high-rise structures and pre-engineered buildings’ exterior architectural products made from aluminum, galvanized steel and Galvalume® coils and aluminum extrusions. End-uses include: metal roofing and wall panel systems; framing for curtainwall, windows, skylights and entrance systems; louvers and grills, soffits, fascia, mullions, column covers and more.
