Why Kynar Aquatec?


Kynar Aquatec® fluoropolymer is an innovative platform of emulsions, which are used by paint formulators to make premium weatherable water-based coatings. Coatings formulated with these emulsions can provide the durability and performance of traditional Kynar 500® resin-based coatings. They can easily be applied to a variety of substrates, including metals, plastics, wood, concrete, masonry, fiber cement, stucco, textiles, and previously painted surfaces.


Kynar Aquatec® ARC latex is a hybrid dispersion containing, on polymer solids, 70% by weight Kynar® fluoropolymer resin and 30% proprietary acrylic resin. This ratio is similar to those used in baked metal finishes based on Kynar 500® fluoropolymer, which have 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® ARC latex are confirming weathering performance comparable to 70% Kynar 500® fluoropolymer finishes.
