Antimicrobial protection is infused into select Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finishes to inhibit the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria on the coating of aluminum surfaces for health care facilities, educational campuses and other buildings. As a fluoropolymer finish containing a minimum of 70% PVDF resin, this three-coat system meets requirements of AAMA 2605, the most stringent, high-performance specification for architectural coatings.
Continually investing in industry-leading innovation, Linetec provides our customers’ products with protection that exceeds other conventional finishes. Architectural aluminum manufacturers can benefit from this extra level of protection anywhere that the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria is a concern.
Utilizing the latest antimicrobial coatings technology, these Linetec finishes help to prevent stain and odor-causing bacteria that may cause deterioration of the physical properties of the coating. When moisture is present, the silver ion exchange mechanism infused into Linetec’s select finishes acts to disrupt the growth of such stain and odor-causing bacteria.
