Without a proper pretreatment, delamination will likely happen within the first year of installation. To prevent, and warranty against, this type of failure a chrome-type pretreatment is recommended. read more
Strengths of High-Performance Paint
- Color Retention (UV resistance)
- Salt-spray resistance
- Vast array of color choices
- Paint protects and maintains the structural integrity of the aluminum
- Field touch-up / repainting capabilities
- Small-batch and custom color capabilities – fast and cost effective
Projects painted by Linetec, utilizing liquid PVDF resin-based coatings, are warranted by the strength of both Linetec and the paint manufacturer.
