Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) coatings are one of the most commonly used commercial and industrial coatings on the market. PVDF is a fluoropolymer resin that is highly inert and stable, providing excellent resistance from metal weathering over time.

PVDF coatings are a resin-based coating system. They are widely used when a durable coating is needed on project exteriors to resist weathering, chalking, fading, and UV rays while offering exceptional protection to the substrate. Valspar’s 70% PVDF coatings result in both an excellent appearance and outstanding protection.

 

 

PVDF coatings can be applied to metal both before and after forming. Coatings are applied in-factory in coil coating applications for metal roofs, garage doors, and wall panels or spray applied to formed aluminum extrusions on curtain walls, aluminum window and door framing, gutters, soffits, and sunshades.

Fluropon, Valspar’s flagship architectural coating leads the industry in meeting the toughest standards, including AAMA 2605. In fact, 70% PVDF coatings are used on many famous buildings across the globe to keep projects vibrant and pristine. For over fifty years, building owners, design professionals, and contractors trust PVDF Valspar coatings for superior performance and protection.
