Arkema to Introduce New Kynar Aquatec® PVDF Specification Guide for Cool Roof Coatings at International Roofing Expo
Kynar Aquatec® PVDF emulsions provide the same long-lasting durability and color-retention benefits as Kynar 500® resin-based coatings in an easy-to-apply waterborne form. Given their excellent weatherability and exceptional resistance to dirt pickup and biological growth, Kynar Aquatec® resin-based coatings offer a high-performance solution for a wide variety of roofing applications, as well as metal restoration and repair projects.
At the show, Arkema Inc. will introduce its new Kynar Aquatec® PVDF specification guide for cool roof coatings applications. The 14-page guide is divided into the Construction Specifier Institute’s three-part format and written in concise language to facilitate the evaluation of coating systems for meeting a cool-roof project’s long life, durability and sustainability goals.
During the event, Bostik, an Arkema company, will feature its full line of “smart adhesives” and sealants for a wide variety of roof construction applications. Bostik 915 and Bostik 915RT provide unprimed adhesion to Kynar Aquatec® resin-based coatings, are Miami-Dade County product control approved, and are designed to comply with the high-velocity hurricane zone requirements of the Florida building code.
