August 27th, 2014 by Editor

The Valspar Corp. has introduced the Acropon® 2605 extrusion coating system for extruded aluminum products, such as storefronts, entrances, windows, handrails, column covers and panel systems.

The product is a proprietary, composite system of organic and inorganic polymers that meets or exceeds AAMA 2605-13 specifications for 10-year South Florida exposure weathering conditions and resistance to salt spray, chalking and fading, according to the company.

The two-coat system consists of a color coat and a clear coat, and is spray-applied to extruded aluminum. The composition allows for color control, consistency and retention, according to the company. The palette available includes color-intense hues, mica and metallic. Gloss levels range from 30 to 70 and higher.

The Acropon 2605 extrusion coating system also withstands abrasions and chemicals, which, according to the company, reduces the potential for scratches, mars or damage during shipments and installation. It has an H-2H pencil hardness and a smooth surface that the company describes as easy to clean, contributing to lower maintenance costs and greater building values.

The product comes with a 10-year warranty.
