The color library enables architects to gain an accurate project snapshot, complete with coatings.

We understand what a critical task color selection is for important projects. At the forefront of innovation and customer service, Valspar now offers building information modeling (BIM) resources for architectural coatings to help AEC professionals make this important decision.

Valspar’s material library for Autodesk Revit features Valspar’s Fluropon®, the industry standard for 70% PVDF architectural coatings. Appropriate for end-uses such as metal wall panel systems, curtain wall, extruded aluminum, and nearly any exterior metal building component you can think of, Fluropon provides superior protection against the elements to ensure that your design retains its brilliant color for decades to come.

Valspar's Fluropon material library for Autodesk Revit allows architects to easily preview color selections on their building models, simplifying the architectural coating selection process. The more accurately architects and designers can visualize a final product, the more effectively color can be used to realize the desired effect.

Valspar's Fluropon material library is loaded into the Revit model and the "paint" tool is used on a variety of exterior metal elements. The Fluropon material library for Revit ensures consistency between the real and virtual worlds, fostering creative choices and simplifying the design process. Revit users can order actual samples after making color sections by using the product code identified in the color library.

This valuable BIM resource makes it easy to share ideas, helps boost productivity and save time during the design phase of a project. The color library enables architects to gain an accurate project snapshot, complete with coatings. Ultimately, this enhances customer satisfaction and trust by providing reliable information to capture the architectural vision of each project.
