SMP
Our silicone-protected polyester coil coating system designed exclusively for the metal construction industry and is the industry’s best and strongest SMP coil coating system, offering superior color stability, chalk resistance, fade resistance and gloss retention.

The two-coat system, using our high-performance primer, provides exceptional durability and offers superior resistance to moisture and UV exposure, with excellent flexibility and abrasion resistance. The unique and highly-durable topcoat provides the best color stability and gloss retention of any SMP product.

It is well known throughout the coatings industry that use of the right pigment combination is critical in formulating a finish that will resist color fade. Only ceramic and select inorganic pigments are used in our finishes to ensure years of durability.
 
PVDF
Our high-performance fluoropolymer coatings contain a minimum of 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin. This unique resin is combined with other proprietary resins and the highest quality ceramic and select inorganic pigments for the finest metal finish available.

PVDF coatings provide a tough, durable, weather-resistant finish that top design professionals are eager to specify, and respected contractors are proud to install.
This two-coat system, using our High-Performance Primer, provides unparalleled protection against harsh environmental weathering for decades. It has a tough but flexible finish, and is perfectly suited for high-end residential, institutional and commercial applications. It meets or exceeds all requirements of AAMA 620/621 and AAMA 2605.

Its tough but flexible finish provides exceptional resistance to weathering effects such as fading and chalking. This long-term beauty and protection is ideal for a wide range of architectural features, such as metal roofing, wall panels, curtain walls, siding, canopies and fascia.

Innovative research and development, considerable application experience and an intense commitment to fulfilling customer needs have earned AkzoNobel a reputation for quality and a position of leadership.

Production samples of our coatings have been exposed for decades at weathering facilities in South Florida and other locations around the world. These samples are constantly being evaluated to ensure the performance meets what is expected by the architectural community. Our PVDF coatings are providing protection on all types of buildings in locations around the globe, and have proven they are more than capable of withstanding the degrading effects of weather extremes from the equator to the arctic.
