Why are Valspar’s 70% PVDF coatings world famous?


Jeff Alexander | December 13, 2017

Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) coatings are featured in acclaimed projects across the globe. Many Valspar customers wonder if all 70% PVDF coatings offer equal resistance to weathering and substrate protection.

The simple answer is no. While any paint manufacturer can make a 70% PVDF coating, the quality of the remaining 30% is very important and relies on technical expertise. It contains binders, solvents, pigmentation, and additives and the quality of these components relies on the expertise of the manufacturer. Our two-coat formulation of fluoropolymer resin ensures exceptional color and durability in a variety of climates.

To meet customer expectations, the most reputable coating manufacturers make their own high-quality acrylic resins and conduct extensive weather testing. Valspar’s weather testing facilities allow our scientists to determine exactly how a resin will perform over time, enabling Valspar to produce industry-leading 70% PVDF coatings.

Valspar has made a long-term commitment to testing so we can stand behind our product quality. In fact, there are samples that have been on our test fence in Florida since 1968! We also use a wealth of data to assist and conduct accelerated cabinet weather testing in addition to exterior natural weathering. These tests provide vital information on how new coatings will perform over time without waiting years.
