Valflon was the ideal coating choice for this specific project, as it is known to retain its color for many years, as well as resist harsh weather elements, airborne chemicals and acid. It combines high gloss and bold colors, keeping the university’s cohesive look both stable and stunning.
The coatings used for this project provide exceptional protection against dirt and stains, and are designed to resist chalking and fading. Additionally, the exterior insulated metal panels offer energy savings to the new academic building through their superior thermal efficiency.

Because Duranar coatings’ molecular structure is invulnerable to the effects of ultraviolet (UV) light, salt spray, acid rain, corrosive chemicals and other environmental stresses on color and gloss, they offered a perfect solution for this unique building.
Without the existence of specialized rods and cones inside the human eye, the world around us would be a much duller place. Without color, a key component of our visible experience would be lost and entire industries would be flushed away or dramatically altered, including interior and graphic design, clothing retail, advertising and especially the manufacturing of paints and coatings.
This event took place September 11-12, 2012 at the DoubleTree Hotel Chicago in Oak Brook, IL. CTT is a 1 1/2-day, comprehensive program that covers the most current coatings technology in short, informative technical sessions, and provides a resource-rich exhibition area for formulators, chemists and raw materials suppliers to make meaningful connections and conduct business.
