Kalcor & Arkema Shed Light on Future of Architectural Coatings

Kalcor Coatings Company (Willoughby, Ohio) teamed up with resin giant Arkema Inc.(King of Prussia, PA) to debut the latest coating technology for Windows and Doors at the recent Win-Door Expo in Toronto, Canada.


Kalcor has engineered new coatings that incorporate the brand new Arkema Kynar Aquatec® 2K technology - a breakthrough in  experior weatherable coating design.  The 2K product provides the extreme weatherability of previous Kynar systems, with added toughness for increased scratch and mar resistance.  "This family of new coatings should create new uses for Kynar based coatings on products such as windows, doors, decking, railings and other components where both weatherability and a robust surface are needed" says architectural coatings market manager Skip Gregorevich.


The coating addresses concerns expressed in a survey conducted by Kalcor Coatings of finishing in the window market.  In a survey of engineers and other operating professionals  in the industry 73% of those responding ranked New Appearances  as the most important feature paint could provide, but of those not painting, 80% cite that paint cannot give the performance required as the biggest obstacle.


Kalcor Kynar Aquatec® 2K coatings fill this void nicely, by allowing wide latitude for new colors and effects, while providing significant improvement in durability. For more information about the new 2K product, contact Skip Gregorevich at Kalcor at 440-478-3573 or at paintguyskip@aol.com
