When it comes to building a custom home, materials matter. After all, your home is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your lifetime. One of the most important areas to pay attention to is your roof. While concrete roof tiles have begun rising in popularity throughout Texas, metal roofs still reign supreme. But, we’re not talking just any plain old metal! No, we’re talking about metal roofs that have been treated with a specialty coating to maximize their longevity and durability.

With that in mind, we’re excited to share a little bit about this month’s product feature: Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based coatings. According to the manufacturer, “Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based coatings are precisely the product necessary to provide such protection and preservation to aluminum, galvanized steel, and aluminized steel. No other coating system withstands the rigors of nature and time like those based on Kynar 500® resins. This high-performance fluoropolymer resin, with its extraordinary capability to retain color and gloss, keeps painted metal looking vibrant and appealing.”

Benefits of Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based coatings include:

  • Increased durability – This coating can withstand inclement weather and harsh sunlight to deliver a long-lasting performance.
  • Color and fade-resistant – Whereas most coatings break down due to sun, rain, and pollutants, Kynar 500® resin is resistant to the chemical breakdown that is common as materials age.
  • Increased color choices – Untreated metal roofs tend to only offer one or two color selections. Kynar 500® FSF® resin can be mixed into paint colors from approved paint suppliers like Sherwin Williams and PPG.
  • Versatility – Kynar 500® coatings can be used for an array of applications other than coating metal roofs. It can be used on residential siding, for powder coating materials, on flexible fabric, and for automotive applications.
