Coatings, paints and finishes featured in Metal Construction News’ June 2020 issue.
Kloeckner Metals Corp.
Kloeckner’s physical vapor deposition (PVD) anti-fingerprint (AF) coating is a nano-layer polymer coating that repels fingerprints, water, oil and permanent markers. The coating is thin and does not change surface texture, visual characteristics or formability of material. PVD AF coating is applied in two steps: a thin silicon oxide layer is deposited followed by thermal deposition of the polymer.
PPG Industries Inc.
PPG’s PPG Durastar spray coating is a one-coat application for extruded aluminum building products and components. It is composed of a polyester resin and is applied directly to metal or over a primer. The spray coating provides corrosion resistance, color fastness and chalk-, scratch- and mar-resistance. PPG Durastar coating meets AAMA 2604 requirements and has low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and low hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
