Over time, sunlight, air and water will break down almost all construction materials. Kynar® PVDF resin is known for excellent performance under severe conditions. Similarly, Kynar Aquatec®-based coatings will withstand extended exposures to water, humidity, a wide range of temperatures, ultraviolet rays, oxygen, and atmospheric pollutants.
Natural elements, such as sunlight, water, wind, and air, drastically break down coatings over time. The heart of the Kynar Aquatec® emulsion technology is the carbon-fluorine (C-F) bond. The C-F bond is one of the strongest bonds known and it is the basis for the extreme weatherability of Kynar Aquatec® emulsion based coatings.
Kynar Aquatec® coatings provide the protection of the traditional Kynar 500® resin-based coatings, in a water-based, low VOC field or factory-applied coating. After 10 years exposure in the hot, Florida sun, coatings based on Kynar Aquatec® emulsion are similar in performance to the traditional Kynar 500® based coatings. The graph below compares the weathering performance of Kynar Aquatec® emulsion-based coatings with that of Kynar 500® resin-based coatings and conventional acrylic-based coatings.
