Featuring a propriety resin system developed by Sherwin-Williams Coil and Extrusion Coatings, Valspar Corp.’s Acrylicoat acrylic coating is designed to deliver a smooth, glass-like, extremely hard finish on extruded-aluminum architectural products. The company says the coating is well-suited for high-traffic areas such as window and door frames, metal panels, column covers and other aluminum extrusions, in both interior and exterior applications. The hard surface resists scratches, and meets or exceeds the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2603-17 industry standard for high-performance coatings. The coating is offered in a range of gloss levels and 18 standard colors; custom solid and metallic colors also are available.

The Sherwin-Williams Coil and Extrusion Coatings division was created after the 2016 acquisition of Valspar by The Sherwin-Williams Company.
