KEM AQUAFluor™ 5001 and 5002 from Sherwin-Williams are premium waterborne coatings formulated with Kynar Aquatec® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin. The coatings are designed to meet AAMA 615 requirements for Superior Performance coatings on plastic profiles.
KEM AQUAFluor 5001 is a single-component, waterborne product. The KEM AQUAFluor 5002 product requires mixing of two components. It provides additional scratch and mar resistance to withstand the rigors of cutting, punching and machining window extrusions (lineals) after finishing. This reduces the potential for damage during shipment and installation. Both products are formulated with solar reflective technology designed to reduce heat buildup in dark colors.
Other key benefits of the Kynar Aquatec PVDF resin include inherent mold and mildew resistance, as well as enhanced resistance to rain, chemicals, dirt pick-up and detergents. Both products can be applied direct to substrate using conventional, airless, air-assisted or HVLP spray equipment.
