Valspar has introduced the Acropon® 2605 Extrusion Coating System for extruded aluminum products, such as storefronts, entrances, windows, handrails, column covers and panel systems. The new coating system’s high gloss, color palette and performance qualities are formulated for both exterior and interior applications on luxury condominiums and other high-end, high-rise residences, as well as low- to mid-rise commercial buildings, including airports, schools, hospitals, retail centers, offices and other facilities with high-traffic areas.

Valspar developed this proprietary, composite system of organic and inorganic polymers with the latest advances in resin technology. The resulting finish meets or exceeds AAMA 2605-13 specifications for 10-year South Florida exposure weathering conditions and resistance to salt spray, chalking and fading.

The two-coat system consists of a color coat and a clear coat, and is spray-applied to extruded aluminum. The innovative composition allows for precise color control, consistency and retention. A wide palette is available, including color-intense hues, mica and metallic. Gloss levels range from 30 to 70 and higher.

Acropon 2605 Extrusion Coating System also withstands abrasions and chemicals. This reduces the potential for scratches, mars or damage during shipments and installation, and also meets the demands of high-traffic interior applications. The smooth surface is easy to clean, contributing to lower maintenance costs for facility managers and greater building values for property owners.
