Kynar Paint Coatings

Click here to learn more about Kynar  Factory Applied, Oven Baked, Custom Colors

Kynar 500 is a premier finish for colorful metal buildings. Originally specified by many architects for long life finishing on metal curtain walls for tall buildings and large industrial parks, Kynar 500 has grown in use for painted aluminum extrusions such as windows and storefronts.

With the development of a wide range of colors, textures and gloss available from our trademark licensees, which are paint manufacturers, Kynar 500 is a common finish used for metal coating at airports, malls, banks, churches, sporting stadiums, office buildings, hotels and restaurants. The durability of Kynar 500 makes it an excellent choice for energy efficient cool roofing coatings.

Kynar PVDF injection molding and extrusion grades are commonly used to handle harsh chemicals for long periods of time. Kynar PVDF is chemically resistant to halogens (chlorine, bromine, fluorine, iodine) and strong acids even at high temperatures. As a wire jacketing, Kynar can be irradiated and used to continuous temperatures up to 175C and is popular for being inherently flame resistant.

Kynar PVDF and Kynar Flex PVDF resins are offered as pellets for easy handling in compounding, molding and extrusion processes and as a fine powder for making solutions or adding to other materials to make high performance composites. In recent years, special high performance grades of Kynar PVDF have been introduced for use as a binder material for the carbon electrodes in lithium ion battery manufacture.

Kynar polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a tough, engineering thermoplastic that offers an excellent balance of performance properties. It has the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to harsh thermal, chemical, and ultraviolet environments.  Kynar resins are readily melt-processed by standard methods, and can be dissolved in polar solvents such as organic esters and amines for coating applications.

Key Attributes of Kynar PVDF include:

  • Mechanical strength and toughness
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High thermal stability
  • High dielectric strength
  • High purity
  • Readily melt processible
  • Resistance to most chemicals and solvents
  • Resistance to ultraviolet and nuclear radiation
  • Resistance to weathering
  • Resistance to fungi
  • Low permeability to most gases and liquids
  • Low flame and smoke characteristics
  • Availability of rigid and flexible versions
