Kynar Aquatec® is an innovative platform of emulsions used by paint formulators to manufacture waterborne coatings. They are high in quality and weather resistant. Coatings formulated with these emulsions offer greater durability than traditional Kynar 500® based coatings. They can be easily applied to a variety of substrates, including metals, plastics, wood, concrete, textiles and previously painted surfaces.

Kynar Aquatec® PVDF-based coatings

Kynar® PVDF is universally known within the architectural community as one of the world's most weatherable coatings resin which provides weathering properties to coatings.

Since 1965, coatings based upon Kynar 500® PVDF resin have protected metal component buildings globally.

Extreme longevity and low maintenance have made it the first choice for architects and specifiers. Multiple subrates are protected by Kynar Aquatec® Based Coatings.


Key takeaways about Kynar Aquatec®

  • A water-based solution with low VOC (volatile organic compound)
  • Same outstanding weathering performance as Kynar 500® and same color palette
  • Field or Factory-applied, it can be used on multiple substrates

Kynar Aquatec® for Factory-Applied Coatings

Semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer are soluble in pole solvents and miscible with selected co-resins.

  • Excellent UV resistance (color, fade, chalk, gloss)
  • High chemical resistance
  • Excellent toughness
  • Hydrophobicity (dirt pick-up resistance)
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Excellent biological resistance (mold, mildew, fungus)

Baked Kynar 500® PVDF solvent based finishes are used worldwide for the protection of architectural metal subtrates.


Key takeaways about coating attributes:

  • Color retention
  • Weatherability
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Maintenance free

Kynar Aquatec®PVDF for Enhanced Dirt Pick-up Resistant Coatings

Kynar® is known as a premium binder in the coating industry. By using high weatherability and high dirt pick-up resitant coatings, TSR (Total Solar reflectance) can be kept fro a long period of time. Kynar Aquatec® was added to acrylic coatings at different contents and checked TSR after exporure in Florida.


Key takeaways: 

  • Coatings can obtain high weatherability by using PVDF binder

  • By using Kynar Aquatec® as binder, waterbased coatings can gain dirt pick-up resistance and anti-fungul properties

  • Acrylic coatings can improve dirt pick-up properties by blending Kynar Aquatec®
  • By using Kynar Aquatec® in cool paints, TSR can be maintained to have cool effect for a long time
