PVDF coating for Amarr aluminum doors

Amarr Aluminum Full View and MultiView garage doors are a beautiful, modern choice for contemporary homes.  There are many choices for Amarr aluminum garage doors, including glass options and color options, but perhaps the most important choice is the choice between powder coating and PVDF coating.

High-performance Polyvinylidene Fluoride or PVDF finish (more commonly known as Kynar®) is a superior exterior coating for all Amarr commercial and residential aluminum door models that offers durability, long-term performance, and outstanding color capabilities.  PVDF coating is also superior in many ways to its powder coat counterpart.  Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of PVDF.

PVDF finishes have better fade resistance, UV resistance, and corrosion resistance than powder coat finishes.  Powder coat finishes have slightly better abrasion resistance, but Amarr aluminum doors in PVDF finishes also come with touch-up paint in case of slight scratches.

Long-term performance
Because PVDF finishes are more resistant to UV rays, fading and corrosion than powder coat finishes, aluminum doors with PVDF finishes stay vibrant and last longer.  PVDF finishes are a great long-term color choice.

Outstanding color capabilities
Amarr commercial and residential aluminum doors are available in 26 standard PVDF finish colors, as compared to 21 standard powder coat finish colors.  For custom projects, custom RAL colors are also available for an upcharge.  This custom color upcharge is less for PVDF finishes than for powder coat finishes.
