On the left: Thomas Point Lighthouse
Thomas Point Shoal Light, also known as Thomas Point Shoal Light Station, is a historic lighthouse in the Chesapeake Bay on the east coast of the United States, and the most recognized lighthouse in Maryland. Thomas Point Lighthouse demanded a high performance finish that would not sacrifice color with age. To provide this finish, Acrymax AF-5500 Fluoropolymer coating based on Kynar Aquatec® PVDF technology was selected to complete the project. The desired finish colors were a bright red on the main roof and a deep-toned black on the cupola.

AF-4400 Fluoropolymer Coating
AF-4400 is a field applied fluoropolymer coating based on Kynar Aquatec® PVDF resin. The additional flexibility built in to the AF-4400 makes it suitible for top coating elastomeric coatings. AF-4400 finish coat can be applied over asphalt, concrete, single ply membranes, metal, and cementious siding primed with Acrymax's AF-130 series coatings or finished with an AF130 series complete system.
AF-5500 Fluoropolymer Coating
AF-5500 is an innovative coating based on Kynar Aquatec® fluoropolymer technology. The primary use for AF-5500 is as a protective and architectural coating over metal roofs. It provides excellent adhesion to metal roofs with factory applied fluoropolymer (PVDF) finishes. However, the increased hardness of the AF-5500 surface makes it an even better façade coating.

Situated low along the riverbank, the historic boathouse is subjected to wind-driven heavy rains and water from falls downstream. Extreme seasonal temperature fluctuations of the Mid-Atlantic region, the urban environment’s acid rain, and fine soot in the air are additional challenging weathering conditions. For the roof topcoat, the AF-4400 Fluoropolymer coating based on Kynar Aquatec® PVDF was selected, which combines the flexibility of an elastomeric acrylic with the superior durability properties of the Kynar Aquatec® technology.
