Kynar® Architectural Metal Finishing

Kynar Coatings: One of Our Most Popular Products

kynar metal coating

Among the many types of products that we use at Certified Enameling, Inc., one of the most popular is Kynar architectural metal finishing. This metal finishing consists of polyvinylidene fluoride or polyvinylidene difluoride, commonly referred to as PVDF. This substance is a nonreactive and highly pure fluoropolymer that is thermoplastic, meaning it becomes pliable when heated above a certain temperature and returns to a solid state upon cooling.

One of the most widely used metal finishing in the building industry is the Kynar 500® PVDF resin, a product known for its durability, gloss retention and versatility.

Coating Mixtures with 70% Kynar - The Optimal Amount

When our customers choose this product, we use a 70% Kynar mixture, since 70% is commonly accepted as being the optimum mixture in terms of achieving qualities such as:

  • mechanical reinforcement
  • barrier properties
  • glossiness
  • resistance to humidity

Lower ratios, such as a 50% Kynar coating, are found to be more brittle and have less resistance to chipping, color degradation and other types of damage. Architects and builders who have experience in the industry know that a 70% Kynar mix is one of the coatings most likely to stand up to the tests of time and the ravages of nature. If you want a premium coating for your building or architectural features to ensure that the project looks great and requires minimal maintenance, this may be the right option for you.

Ideal Applications for Kynar Architectural Metal Finishing

Kynar is used for a variety of building projects, such as:

  • metal curtain walls on skyscrapers and industrial buildings
  • aluminum extrusions and storefronts
  • features used in locations as diverse as airports, malls, banks, churches, sporting stadiums, schools, hotels, restaurants, and office buildings

Kynar coatings may be found on architectural panels, roofs, siding, window frames, door frames or other types of trim. This premier architectural metal finishing is generally used when the builders want to give the structure a bold and eye-catching colorful appearance that will set it apart from the rest.

Color Options for Kynar Coating

Kynar coating is available in a range of colors, textures and levels of glossiness through the various trademark licensees. Options include standard colors, exotics, an XL barrier coat and micas. Kynar is pure, strong and highly resistant to solvents, acids, bases and heat, making it ideal for many different applications.

It comes in a variety of forms, but when mixed with metal finishing paint, it is used as a fine powder. To learn more about Kynar and request a quote and sample of the material, contact our office now and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff members.
