ALUMINUM ARCHITECTURAL PRODUCTS
The metallic elements protecting the outside of buildings must be protected by a paint offering excellent weather resistance while retaining its shine and color. To this end, PPG Industry inc. has developed specific aluminum coating systems, available only through a network of approved applicators of which Anacolor inc. is a member since 1970.
Anacolor inc. can apply these coatings on different types of products:
• Curtain walls
• Flat panels
• Curved panels
• Column covers
• Louvers and sheds
The DURACRON system consists of a thermosetting polyester enamel (400ºF / 200ºC). When applied to aluminum pretreated by conversion to chromium phosphate, this paint offers excellent adhesion, resists corrosion, impacts, and surface scratches while maintaining the film integrity and good color retention.
This system is recommended for interior applications on residential or commercial buildings. It meets or exceeds the AAMA 2603-15 standard of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association.
High-performance Duranar systems
The high-performance Duranar systems are the cutting edge of KYNAR 500 (70%) inert resin fluorocarbon paints. This oven thermosetting resin, combined with different polymers and synthetic pigments, has been specially designed for outdoor use in general and more specifically on large buildings where color resistance and retention are essential.
DURANAR is available in two separate systems :
This system consists of a chromium phosphate pretreatment followed by 3 layers of coating then baking (450ºF / 230ºC):
1 An anti-corrosion primer.
2 A coat of colored DURANAR paint.
3 A layer of XL satin varnish ensuring
additional long-term protection.
DURANAR XL allows the use of pastel and bright colors with or without pearl or metallic effect and resists polluted atmospheres and acid rain of urban and industrial environments.
This system is identical to the first except that it does not have the last layer of XL satin varnish. It is available in pastel and semi-bright colors only, with some pearl effects but without any metallic effect.
These DURANAR systems meet or exceed the AAMA 2605-13
standard of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association.
Anacolor inc. also offers a wide range of powder coatings for architectural aluminum.
• AAMA2604, super durable powder paint
• AAMA2605, fluoropolymer powder paint
