For over 2 decades, Kynar Aquatec® PVDF Latex has imparted exceptional weather-ability, color fastness, mold & mildew resistance and dirt-pick up resistance in exterior architectural coating formulations. These properties make Kynar Aquatec® PVDF Latex a natural fit for coatings used in roof restoration projects with demanding long-term color retention requirements and for cool roofing systems requiring a sustained Total Solar Reflectance (TSR) value, while still meeting the most stringent volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations.
Formulate bold metal roof topcoat colors with confidence using Kynar Aquatec® ARC and FMA-12 Resins
Kynar Aquatec® ARC resin-based coatings meet the color retention requirements of AAMA 2605, having a similar composition to Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based coatings used in ultra-durable OEM metal roof finishes. After 20 years of south Florida exposure, waterborne coatings based on Kynar Aquatec® ARC resin track with weathering performance comparable to coatings formulated with Kynar 500® resin in a field applied, ambient cure topcoat.
For low VOC coating applications, look to Kynar Aquatec® FMA-12 resin with its lower minimum film formation temperature (MFFT). High slope metal roof coatings formulated with Kynar Aquatec® FMA-12 resin retains exceptional color fastness and UV durability while meeting stringent VOC regulations.
Keep low slope roofs cool with coatings formulated with Kynar Aquatec® FMA-12 resin
Kynar Aquatec® FMA-12 resin can be formulating into a broad range of roofing coating applications. Its low MFFT imparts the flexibility needed for elastomeric topcoats used in low slope roofing applications meeting ASTM D6083. These roof coatings have the benefits of imparting exceptional color fastness for brilliant logo applications with outstanding stay clean properties, resisting biological growth and dirt pick-up, all of which significantly enhance reflectivity for cool roof applications, while meeting stringent VOC regulations.

For the roof restoration, club members wanted a durable solution that would stand up to the challenging weathering conditions much longer than the typical seven-year lifecycle of an elastomeric coating. Long-lasting color retention of the iconic red roof was also of vital importance.
In search of a high-performance coating to provide the demanding durability and aesthetic performance requirements, Cooper Roofing reached out to the experts at Acrymax Technologies. For nearly seven decades, the company’s engineered coating systems have been used to overcome very challenging problems at countless historic roof restoration projects.
For the roof topcoat, Acrymax Technologies' AF-4400 coating was selected. AF-4400 combines the flexibility of an elastomeric acrylic with the superior durability properties of Kynar Aquatec® technology.
