Linetec expands its palette of finish colors that mimic the look and feel of natural terra cotta to include 13 new hues. The finish utilizes a 70% PVDF resin-based coating to achieve the highest levels of performance in an exterior environment and a texture additive to help replicate the natural feel of terra cotta.
Adding to the four colors introduced last year, Linetec’s 17 faux terra cotta colors are:
“In addition, architects like that our faux terra cotta texture colors can be specified on a large variety of shapes and sizes, and on panels manufactured with recycled aluminum content. Compared with true terra cotta, our customers also save time and labor compared to waiting for European shipments and for the heavy, fragile material to be installed on site,” added Close.
As a 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based coating, Linetec’s terra cotta painted finish meets the requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s most stringent, high-performance specification standard, AAMA 2605-13. These architectural finishes are tested to exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals.
As an environmentally responsible finisher, Linetec safely captures and destroys the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in liquid paints at the factory before arrival on the building site. These industry-leading practices complement other green building choices and ensure a long-lasting, durable and sustainable finish.
