APV Engineered Coatings launches a new line of primer and topcoat systems under the NeverFade brand name for restoration of architectural metal structures such as wall panels, window and door frames, roofs, railings, overhangs and decorative features. Available in solvent- and water-based formulations, the new NeverFade Façade Restoration coatings are ideal for use with carbon steel, stainless steel, bare aluminum and anodized aluminum.

The coating systems are designed to resist UV degradation, abrasion, corrosion, mold growth, chalking, dirt and staining and maintain their color, even with dark and earthy tones.

According to the company, the NeverFade original formulation was launched for concrete, stucco, masonry and vinyl siding applications but now the restoration system aids commercial and industrial property owners.

The product line’s water-based metal restoration coatings are formulated with Kynar Aquatec emulsion from Arkema. It meets SCAQMD Rule 1113 VOC limits in Southern California for industrial maintenance coatings, with only 40-100 g/L of VOCs, depending on color. The coating can be used with APV’s complementary W-1650 bonding primer for previously coated fluoropolymer surfaces, such as Kynar 500 resin-based coatings.

The primer contains 50 g/L of VOCs, meeting SCAQMC Rule 1113 VOC limits for Southern California of 100 g/L of VOCs. The water-based topcoat also can be used with APV’s W-1500 universal primer and APV’s two component corrosion-resistant epoxy primer. This product contains exempt solvents to meet SCAQMC Rule 1113 VOC limits.

The solvent-based metal restoration coatings are formulated with Kynar ADS II resin from Arkema. It dries in 10-15 minutes and sets up and hardens quickly. The coating can be used with APV’s complementary two-component, corrosion-resistant epoxy primer, a primer that offers an enhanced bond to metal and concrete surfaces.

All NeverFade Façade Restoration formulas are custom color-matched to order. They are available in flat, eggshell, and semi-gloss sheens. The coatings are ready-to-use as supplied and come in 1-gallon cans, 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums. They can be applied with a brush, roller or conventional spray equipment.

APV Engineered Coatings custom formulates and manufactures industrial coatings and advanced chemical products in Akron, Ohio.
