Coatings based on Kynar Aquatec® have excellent water repellency and prevent water from penetrating the surface. Even after 200 hours of immersion, the Kynar Aquatec® coating shows minimal water pick-up. Kynar Aquatec® emulsion-based coatings have excellent substrate adhesion and resist delamination and water damage.
Kynar Aquatec® based coatings are excellent at preventing water from penetrating the surface. Even after 200 hours of immersion, a coating based on this technology shows minimal water pick-up at 2% by weight versus an acrylic coating that can pick up more than 13%. The result of low water pick-up is excellent adhesion of the coating to the surface and reduced maintenance cost related to delamination and water damage.
