Founded in 1878, APV Engineered Coatings custom formulates and manufactures industrial coatings and advanced chemical products out of Akron, Ohio. APV is known for supplying high performance technologies to aerospace, architecture, industrial fabrics, and other industries for OEM and field applications.
The paint systems specified in this Section are based on the use of NeverFadeŽ with Kynar Aquatec(r) PVDF and latex-blended coatings as the basis of design. Kynar Aquatec(r) is an innovative platform of PVDF emulsions used in NeverFade(r) Facade Restoration Coating formulations. Coatings formulated with these emulsions can provide the durability and performance of traditional Kynar 500(r) resin-based (AAMA 2605 standard) coatings but can be applied in the field. NeverFade(r) coatings are easily applied to a variety of substrates, including metals, plastics, wood, concrete, masonry, fiber cement, stucco and previously painted surfaces.

          1.4DEFINITIONS
 
          A.The Kynar Aquatec platform of emulsions:
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Kynar Aquatec(r) ARC latex is a hybrid dispersion containing, on polymer solids, 35-70% by weight Kynar PVDF resin and proprietary acrylic and urethane resin. This ratio is similar to those used in baked metal finishes based on Kynar 500(r) PVDF, which have over a 50-year track record of superb weatherability in architectural applications. After 17 years south Florida exposure, waterborne coatings based on prototype versions of Kynar Aquatec(r) ARC latex are confirming weathering performance comparable to 70% Kynar 500(r) PVDF finishes. Delete if not required.
          1.Kynar Aquatec ARC latex: Hybrid dispersion containing 70% by weight Kynar PVDF resin and proprietary acrylic resin.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Kynar Aquatec(r) FMA-12 latex is a hybrid dispersion containing, on polymer solids, 50% by weight Kynar PVDF resin, and 50% proprietary acrylic resin. Accelerated weathering results confirm superior durability of FMA-12 latex compared to premium grade acrylics. Kynar Aquatec(r) FMA-12 latex paints with a latex minimum film formation temperature (MFFT) in the 10-12 degrees C range are designed for field- applied elastomeric roofing, building restoration and premium architectural coatings. Coatings based on this product show excellent adhesion on numerous substrates including PVDF coated metal roofing. Delete if not required.
