USGNN Original StoryKeymark Adds Capabilities to Horizontal Paint Line

Aluminum extruder Keymark Corp. in Lakeland, Fla., has increased capacity on its 40-foot horizontal paint line. By adding an incinerator to its existing line, Keymark can now spray Kynar-based coatings on aluminum extrusions in lengths up to 40 feet. The line was previously capable of spraying only polyester and powder paints.

"Industrial architectural paint manufacturers have used Kynar 500 PVDF resin for over 40 years," says Brent Slaton, national sales coordinator for Keymark. "The paint coatings provide outstanding durability and performance to exterior applications of pre-formed aluminum components such as curtainwalls, louvers, panels and windows. Fifty percent and 70 percent paint coatings using this resin system are highly resistant to chalking, chipping, fading and peeling when applied by an approved applicator."

According to information from the company, the addition of the new incinerator demonstrates its commitment to sustainable environmental solutions that keep communities environmentally clean and allows its customers to achieve LEED ratings for green buildings.
