mercedes-benz-superdome-roof Kynar Aquatec® PVDF technology is an innovative platform of emulsions for producing ultra-durable water-based coatings that can be formulated with VOC levels below 100 grams/liter. Coatings containing these emulsions provide the long-lasting durability and color-retention benefits of traditional Kynar 500® resin-based coatings and can easily be applied to a variety of substrates. Given their excellent weatherability, outstanding water repellency and exceptional resistance to dirt pickup and biological growth, Kynar Aquatec®–based coatings offer a high-performance, long-term solution for metal restoration and repair projects, as well as a wide variety of other roof-coating applications.

ENCOR® Flex latexes improve the dirt pickup resistance and weatherability of elastomeric coatings for low-slope, commercial thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing membranes. The high performance of coatings based on Arkema binders is due, in part, to the excellent overall elastomeric properties of ENCOR® Flex latexes. With Kynar Aquatec® PVDF and ENCOR® Flex latexes, Arkema offers three binder system options that provide high performance and formulating flexibility for cool roof coating applications.

Coatex offers a full range of waterborne synthetic rheology modifiers for formulating a wide variety of high-performance roof coatings. This portfolio of solutions includes Rheotech™ and Coapur™ water-based thickeners to control mineral particle stability and Ecodis™ and Coadis™ dispersants to enhance rheology profile. These products can be formulated with VOC levels below 5 grams/liter and do not contain APEOs (alkylphenol ethoxylates), solvents, or heavy metals.

In addition to showcasing the innovative Kynar Aquatec® PVDF latex, ENCOR® Flex binder system options and Coatex rheology modifier technologies, Arkema will be presenting its full line of Bostik “smart adhesive” solutions for a wide variety of roof construction applications. These high-performance products adhere to Kynar® resin-based coatings, are hurricane-strong (Miami-Dade County hurricane-approved) and come with a best-in-class warranty.
