Application Instructions / Equipment

Kynar Aquatec® is an innovative platform of emulsions, which are used by paint formulators to make premium weatherable water-based coatings. Coatings formulated with these emulsions can provide the durability and performance of traditional Kynar 500® resin-based coatings. They can easily be applied to a variety of substrates, including metals, plastics, wood, concrete, masonry, fiber cement, stucco, textiles, and previously painted surfaces.

Recommended Environmental Conditions at the time of application for field applied

Ambient air temperature is pertinent to coating performance and cure. Be sure to check that the air, surface, and material are between 55°-90°F and at least 5°F above the dew point. Avoid application if precipitation is expected within 24 hours and/or if air or surface temperature is expected to drop below 35°F within two days.

 

Kynar Aquatec® licensees can provide specific details with regard to the proper use of their coatings made with Kynar Aquatec® PVDF resin.

Typical thickness per pass for field and factory applied

2-4 dry mils per pass,  a Nordson Wet Film Gauge is used for measuring coating thickness. Applying the appropriate film thickness is important to the performance characteristics of the coating. Be careful not to apply too heavy of a coat. Excessive paint on the surface may result in runs and sags as well as weak spots in the film. A heavy coat weight may also change the drying properties causing wrinkling or cracking, and adversely affect intercoat adhesion.
