3A Composites debuts paint technology

3A Composites has introduced a new "cool" paint technology for its ALUCOBOND cladding material. ALUCOBOND Cool finishes offer higher solar reflectivity, which can translate to lower cooling costs and energy savings. The line is available in 15 stock polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) colors at no additional cost. In addition to higher solar reflectivity, ALUCOBOND Cool finishes feature longerlasting color life and chalk resistance; superior corrosion resistance; and exceptional chemical, humidity and salt-spray resistance. The finishes require little maintenance and most surface contaminants can be removed using conventional detergents or cleaning solvents. The ALUCOBOND Cool line now is standard for the PVDF colors for which it is offered. Darker PVDF colors not qualifying for cool technology will remain available.
