PVDF-Coated ACP Panels: Meaning, Applications, and Benefits

PVDF-Coated ACP Panels: Meaning, Applications, and Benefits 1200 600 Social Media

In order to boost the corrosion and abrasion resistance of ACP cladding, surface treatment should be applied. A variety of surface treatment methods are available, including electrophoresis, anodizing, and electrostatic coating. It is possible to classify electrostatic coatings as powder coatings and fluorocarbon coatings (PVDF Coating).

Our topic for today’s blog is PVDF coating and its advantages. So let’s get straight to the point.

What is PVDF Coating?

PVDF stands for Polyvinylidene Fluoride. A PVDF coating, or KYNAR500 coating, is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is non-reactive and contains a long list of coating benefits. It is a factory-applied resin-based liquid coating system. The distribution of metal particles in fluorocarbon coatings has a direct impact on the appearance of the coating.

A short fluorine-carbon bond is formed in the chemical structure of the paint, which forms the strongest bond with the hydrogen ion. Fluorocarbon coatings are therefore characterized by certain physical and chemical properties, which we will discuss in a bit more detail later on.

PVDF coatings are sold under several brand names, including Kynar, Hylar, and Solef, but VIVA’s ACP panels are made of 70% KYNAR 500 certified PVDF (Fluorinated polyvinyl) paint which conforms to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and EN (European Nation) standards. We procure PVDF paints from Nippon, PPG, Bergers, Akzonobel, Monopol & many other paint companies.

What is the most suitable application of PVDF-coated ACP panels?

PVDF coatings are widely used for projects that require an extremely durable coating that resists weathering, chalking, fading, and UV rays while offering excellent protection to the substrate.

PVDF coatings are especially recommended for exterior locations with strong sunlight or moist and humid areas, such as coastal locations and beaches.

The outer aluminum sheet of the ACP panel meant for exterior application is usually coated with PVDF paints.

ACP panels with PVDF coating can be used to decorate storefronts, shopping malls, industrial facilities, educational institutes, bus stations, advertisement screens, signage, display systems, hospitals, and curtain wall cladding of buildings.

What are the Advantages of using ACP cladding with PVDF coating?

PVDF coating properties such as low melting point, high dielectric and mechanical strength translate into the following advantages. Here is a quick glance.

  • Excellent resistance to acids, solvents, bases
  • Superb resistance to abrasion and wear
  • High peel-off strength
  • Outstanding color and gloss retention
  • Coats surfaces with an appealing matte finish
  • Exceptional color consistency (resists fading)
  • An alternative to dip coatings, which contain organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Thermo stable both at low and high temperatures
  • Highly inert and stable, providing excellent resistance from metal weathering over time.
  • Anticorrosive and non chalking
  • Ensures long-term durability with minimal maintenance
  • Anti-frosting and anti-air pollution (acid rain, etc.)
  • High brightness despite the thin coating (.020″ – .030″ )
  • Can withstand atrocious Weather
  • Anti-UV and anti-nuclear radiation
  • Two hours of resistance to boiling water (good adhesion effect)
  • Low smoke generation and self-extinguishing capabilities in case of fire

ACP Facade Consultants

How important are Facade Consultants when it comes to ensuring beauty inside and out of modern construction?

How important are Facade Consultants when it comes to ensuring beauty inside and out of modern construction? 1200 600 Social Media

Taking into account the complexity involved in modern-day façades, the design, procurement, engineering, and execution process needs a specialist team that can comprehend the specific requirements and help execute world-class façades. This is where façade consultants come into play.

If the façade turns out to be as planned, we can ensure the success of our project and prevent a costly failure.

What is the importance of facades in architecture?

In addition to being an integral part of the design of a building, the façade also gives the passerby a first impression of what to expect from the structure as a whole.

The façade design not only enhances building design but also adds various functional characteristics such as durability, strength, and security.

Exterior ACP panels do more than adding aesthetic appeal to outward-facing walls.

Due to the constant reformulation of green building regulations, facades are the most critical aspect of a structure since they affect its light transmittance, acoustics performance, and ventilation.

A properly designed façade can help reduce the building’s energy consumption. Improving natural lighting and offering better airflow helps to bring the energy costs down considerably, and add to the lifespan of the building.

The reason for the growing importance of Facade Consultants in the Facade Industry

It has taken a relatively short time for facade consulting to grow from an almost nonexistent specialization into a potentially high-growth area in India’s construction industry.

It is due to the fact that there has been considerable development in the construction industry.

Gone are the days when a building served merely as a shelter. In recent years, the definition of a facade has undergone a dramatic change due to the separation of the ‘skin’ from the structure (aluminum composite panel cladding), as well as the emergence of new materials and technologies. More and more building projects have incorporated aluminum composite panel cladding into their architecture. Thus the critical input of the facade consultant is imperative for an optimum façade performance and satisfactory outcome.

The Role of Facade Consultants For Successful Construction

There are many aspects to a building’s design, including structural, aesthetic, thermal, safety, security, material, and more. How should the overall facade be oriented with respect to the roads and sightlines? How will the structure interact with its natural and artificial surroundings? – Façade consultants are constantly searching for ways to enhance a building’s performance. The façade engineer is responsible for making the space comfortable for the occupants, so everything from the amount of light that will enter the building to noise levels from the outside environment needs to be taken into consideration.

In addition to ensuring seamless and coordinated construction, a façade consultant can help in three significant ways:

Increasing the use of sustainable products in contemporary construction is a key concern since they reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency, resulting in lower environmental impact in the future. Government-specified sustainability targets and performance criteria are pre-evaluated by facade consultants.

They have the right resources, experience, and expertise to provide continued advice on ACP panel design including finishes, performance criteria (fire safety, weather-proofing, anti-scratch), technical and cost constraints, etc.

A large part of their job entails construction supervision. A facade consultant is responsible for assisting in perfecting features and prototype validation, monitoring and inspecting supplies at production sites, assisting in investigations of reported failures and defects, etc.

Conclusion

Oftentimes, the cost of building the facade is 35 percent of the total project cost. This cost, however, is considered worthwhile so long as the design is sound.

No doubt, facade consultancy presents many challenges. Even so, these challenges are what make the job of a façade engineer one of the most creative and interesting within the ACP panel industry.

ACP sheets contribute to wall ventilation and boost building strength - VIVA

How ACP Sheets Contribute To Wall Ventilation And Boost Building Strength?

How ACP Sheets Contribute To Wall Ventilation And Boost Building Strength? 1200 600 Social Media

ACP sheets can renovate and reinvigorate a building with its charming shades and a plethora of unique benefits that it offers. Aluminium Composite Panels are weatherproof, stain-resistant and superiorly durable. The panels remain intact in their colour, shape and size even after being exposed to harsh sunlight and weather changes, making them ideal for all seasons and weather conditions.

But did you know that ACP sheets also helps in wall ventilation and increases building strength?

Let’s learn how they contribute

But first things first,

What is ventilated façade?

It is a kind of façade construction where an air gap is created between the insulation and the façade cladding. The gap which is open at the top and bottom allows the air to flow, creating a way for the natural ventilation of the façade. The gap also provides thermal and acoustic insulation to the building.

Now let’s understand the significance of ACP cladding

It is needless to mention the fact that the introduction of ACP sheets, gave the builders and architects a brand new option to rejuvenate the building cladding. Besides being budget -friendly and adding a great deal of aesthetic to the building, ACP cladding ensures longevity, weather and fire resistance and are also easy to install.

For buildings, especially the commercial ones, façade is of immense importance. Irrespective of the fact that whether it’s a new building or an old one if you are looking forward to elevating the overall look of the building, Aluminium Composite Panels are the most useful and cost-effective option.

Also, it is much better than paint because painting would demand recoating after a couple of years and it must also be noted that painted surfaces needto be maintained. Their cost-effectiveness comes from the fact that they do not require re-installation or any kind of high maintenance.

Being one of the finest ACP sheet manufacturers in India, Viva’s ACP cladding is resistant to water and other harsh weather elements, this prevents moisture absorption that weakens the overall structure of the building. This in turn also prevents the chance of mould and bacteria growth.

The mechanical strength of the building is also significantly increased as the pollutants are kept out of the building. Using the best quality ACP sheets also ensures thermal insulation, improved acoustics and lesser temperature variation in the building.

Viva – A Juggernaut in the ACP Industry

At Viva, we manufacture one of the best quality ACP sheets in India. Our ACP sheets are lightweight, recyclable, non-corrosive and are available in a wide variety of shades, textures and finishes. Our superior quality ACP sheets can mimic the look of some materials like wood, marble and even galaxy to make the building look beautiful.
