Kalcor and Arkema Host Successful Architectural Coatings Webinar

Kalcor Coatings along with its partner, Arkema, Inc. teamed up to produce a webinar focused on the new generation of Kynar water-based coatings for exterior building product applications.

Kynar, the most respected name in high-performance weatherable resin technology, has a well earned reputation for durability. Today's demand for more enviornamentally compliant coatings has led to the development of Aquatec, the water-based version of Kynar® 500.

The free, one-hour webinar, was held on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 and was attended by manufacturers of windows, doors, siding, roofing and other building products.

The webinar addressed the technical aspects of exterior durable coatings, providing examples of successful applications, exploring the cost as well as application and process requirements. Information about the latest 2K version of Kynar® Aquatec was also presented.

An archived recording of the webinar is available for viewing on the Durability and Design web site:



 A Brief Abstract of the Webinar:

Water-based Kynar® Coatings for Exterior Building Products
The demands on coatings for exterior architectural and building products continue to become more difficult.  Not only do today’s coatings need to look great, they need to perform for a considerable time while resisting fading, chalking, peeling and deterioration.  Other properties such as environmentally friendly materials, better adhesion, improved scratch and mar resistance, solar-reflectivity, cleanability, or ease of application -- along with constant pressure to keep cost down has prompted chemists to develop new coating technologies that meet these challenges.

This webinar examines the success of adapting proven Kynar
® PVDF resins for the new exterior building product marketplace.  The advent of water-based Kynar®, provides an eco-friendly solution without compromising curb appeal or exterior durability.  
We examine how coatings can be formulated for different substrates (such as wood, plastic, fiberglass, composites, asphalt and cement) and various products (like siding, windows, doors, roofing, decks, railings and trim) that demand specific properties (including color, gloss, flexibility, abrasion resistance, or low heat build) for both factory and field applied coatings.

Attendees will come away with a better knowledge of the wide range of coating options available, how to prepare a comprehensive specification, and technical advice for selecting the most appropriate solution for their project.
