ArchResourceImage-withLinetec-WEB2The leading manufacturers of  high-performance, 70% Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) resin-based architectural coatings are PPG, Valspar, Akzo Nobel and Sherwin Williams. 

There are several paint types within the  70% PVDF resin-based coatings family including:

  • standard color two-coat systems, consisting of a primer and color coat (top coat),
  • two-coat mica systems, also consisting of a primer and color coat,
  • three-coat metallic, consisting of a primer, color coat and clear coat,
  • three- and four-coat bright and exotic colors. These systems include a primer, color coat, clear coat and sometimes a barrier coat.

70% PVDF coatings are available in tens of thousands of different colors; however there are some bright and vibrant colors that cannot be formulated without the use of cadmium or lead in the formulation.

70% PVDF coatings are also available in some specialty formulations such as:

  • energy-efficient, solar-reflective formulations (Fluropon® SR),
  • graffiti-resistant coatings (Duranar® GR),
  • antimicrobial coatings,
  • color-changing Kameleon™  paint coatings (Fluropon).

Stretch Forming by Linetec

Stretch Forming by LinetecPeople have been bending and curving metal for centuries, but stretch forming, born from the aerospace industry, maintains precise dimensions throughout a curve and produces perfectly contoured products while limiting, or even eliminating, wrinkling inside the arc.

Stretch forming is the process of forming sheets and profiles by the combined application of tensile and bending forces. Stretch forming keeps the extrusion under constant tension while wrapping it around a form, or die, to make parts into simple or complex contoured curves.

To deliver these stretch forming services, Linetec has teamed with Southern Stretch Forming, headquartered in Texas. The company will provide a full scope of bending capabilities on Linetec’s campus in Wausau, Wis., including annealing and tempering to soften and harden aluminum.
