KAPGUARD®




BRINGING KYNAR® TO THE ENTIRE ARCHITECTURAL INDUSTRY


PRODUCT CODE: Various
CATEGORY: Paints & Coatings

KAPGUARD® with Kynar® is a factory-applied, high-performance protective coating for composite exterior building products. This architectural coating is formulated with Kynar® PVDF resin, a tough thermoplastic polymer resin, which helps provide superior protection in harsh thermal, chemical and UV environments. KAPGUARD® offers bold and rich colors that don’t fade and degrade like traditional building products and paints.

KAPGUARD® is installed at the OEM and can be roll or spray-applied. Traditional Kynar® coatings require 400 degrees Fahrenheit to cure, limiting its use to metal materials. KAPGUARD® incorporates a unique grade of Kynar® that can be cured at low bake temperatures and used on an unlimited number of material types. The product can be formulated in water or solvent base and in one- or two-component chemistries.  By incorporating complex inorganic pigments, the color fastness, gloss retention, weatherability and lifecycle is unprecedented in the industry!

KAPGUARD® has a coating lifecycle of 20 years in the harshest environments. Along with exceptional color retention, it is hydrophobic, resists mold and mildew growth, protects from stains and sheds dirt. When using infrared reflective (IR) pigment technology, KAPGUARD® can reduce heat absorption into the substrate. With low heat gain, the coating can reduce warping of the substrate and feel be cooler to the touch… think of the impact on composite decking and dark colored vinyl siding.
