COATING FOR EXTRUDED ALUMINUM

Sherwin-Williams Co.’s Coil and Extrusion Coatings division has introduced Valspar Acrylicoat, a coating and resin system that the company says delivers a smooth, glass-like finish and hard surface on extruded aluminum architectural products. Acrylicoat is intended for high-traffic residential and industrial areas, and Sherwin-Williams says it is ideal for windows, door frames, metal panels, column covers and other aluminum extrusions in both exterior and interior environments.

The company adds that the hard surface resists scratches and meets or exceeds the American Architectural Manufacturers Association 2603-17 industry standard for high-performance coatings.

"We're proud to present a true single-coat solution that applies better, hides better and ultimately costs less," says Jeff Alexander, vice-president of sales for Sherwin-Williams Coil and Extrusion Coatings. "With a wide curing window, it also offers applicators the option of curing at a lower temperature to save energy and money, or curing at a higher temperature for increased throughput at a higher line speed."

The product is offered in a wide range of gloss levels and 18 colors, though custom solid and metallic colors are available upon request.
