What is PVDF Color Coated Aluminum Coil

Color coated aluminum coils include two common types: fluorocarbon color coated aluminum (PVDF) and polyester coated aluminum coils (PE). PVDF (fluorocarbon) coating utilizes ester solvent, pigment, and fluorocarbon resin as raw materials. The coating undergoes multiple high-temperature baking processes to form a solid, dry film that exhibits exceptional resistance to temperature changes. There are two types of PVDF coating: conventional PVDF coating and nano PVDF coating. The conventional PVDF coating uses KYNAR500 PVDF, which provides excellent resistance to acids and alkalis after three coatings and baking. It maintains its color for 15 years, even in harsh weather conditions, making it suitable for external wall cladding. On the other hand, nano PVDF coating is a transparent coating that contains nano components, offering protection against contaminants. Additionally, its self-cleaning effect allows dirt and pollutants to be easily washed away by rain or water.

The increasing popularity of PVDF color coated aluminum coil has made it a highly desirable material in today’s market. Environmental-friendly nature of PVDF color coated aluminum coil is well-suited to the growing emphasis on environmental issues. These coils demonstrate fantastic resistance to corrosion caused by saltwater, alkalis, and acid rain. They do not corrode, release harmful toxins or gases, and they do not cause any harm to structural elements like keels. What’s more, the fixings on these coils are rust-resistant and has flame retardant characteristics.

Fluorocarbon Spraying Process

Fluorocarbon spraying process adopts multi-layer spraying to give full play to the advantages of durability and weathering resistance of Kynar500 metallic paint, from the pre-surface treatment of aluminum to the various spraying processes need to be strictly controlled for quality, and the final product must meet the American Architectural and Manufacturing Association AAMA-605.02.90 standard.

Fluorocarbon spraying process is:

Pre-treatment process: Degreasing and decontamination of aluminum → water washing → alkali washing (degreasing) → water washing → acid washing → water washing → chroming → water washing → pure water washing

Spraying process: spraying primer → top coat → overcoat paint → baking (180-250 ℃) → quality inspection

Multi-layer spraying process: Multi-layer spraying process with three times spraying (referred to as three spraying), spraying primer, top coat and overcoat paint and secondary spraying (primer, top coat).

PVDF Coating Features

Excellent anti-corrosion properties: Thanks to excellent chemical inertia, film resistance to acids, alkalis, salts and other chemical substances and a variety of chemical solvents, to provide a protective barrier for the substrate; the film tough – high surface hardness, impact resistance, resistance to flexing, good wear resistance, showing excellent physical and mechanical properties.

Maintenance-free, self-cleaning: Fluorocarbon coating has a very low surface energy, surface dust can be self-cleaning through the rain, excellent hydrophobicity and oil repellent, very small coefficient of friction, will not stick to the dust and dirt, good antifouling.

Strong adhesion: In copper, stainless steel and other metals, polyester, polyurethane, vinyl chloride and other plastics, cement, composite materials and other surfaces have its excellent adhesion, basically showing that it is appropriate to attach to any material characteristics. High decorative – in the 60 degree gloss meter, can reach more than 80% of high gloss.

Ultra-long weatherability: The coating contains a large number of F – C bonds, which determines its super stability, does not chalk, does not fade, the service life of up to 20 years, with more excellent performance than any other class of coatings. Excellent workability – two-component packaging, long storage period, convenient construction.

What is the difference between PE and PVDF coating?

PE (Polyester) coating is a cost-effective option with moderate durability and color retention, suitable for interior applications or short-term outdoor use. PVDF (Fluorocarbon) coating offers superior durability, color retention, and chemical resistance, making it ideal for long-term outdoor applications, but it is generally more expensive.

Is PVDF coating expensive?

Yes, PVDF (Fluorocarbon) coating is generally more expensive compared to other coating options such as PE (Polyester). The higher cost of PVDF coating is due to its superior durability, color retention, and chemical resistance properties.
