Introductions to coatings

10:15 am - 11:15 am

You don't have to be an architect or facility manager to know that various environments put every building material and surface through some of the most rigorous, day-to-day durability challenges. But, if you are part of the team specifying these materials and surfaces, it helps to know which finishes are the most sustainable, weather resistant to the elements of the selected environment, and which will be easiest to maintain for the duration of the buildings life. The architectural industry most often relies on two types of finishes-anodize and paint. Both can offer a long-lasting finish on building materials and surfaces, but each has its own characteristics inherent in its appliion. As an architect, specifier, contractor, or other member of the building community, Linetec's presentation will help you better understand field performance of architectural Kynar 500 (PVDF) paints, baked enamels, powder coating and anodize finishes including strengths, weaknesses , weatherability and sustainability. The anodize, paint and powder coat processes, specifications and performances are explained to the audience. In addition, a summary comparison of all three finish types, referencing AAMA specifications, are discussed during the program. Whether building a new facility, renovating an existing one or simply updating a specific area, taking the care in selecting the finish for your aluminum building products and surfaces will assure the longest lifespan for your project. Much more than enhancing appearance, your finish specification can make the difference in durability and lasting performance for many years ahead.
