Protective solutions for pre-coated metals
Pre-coated steel & aluminum, laminated PVC, or colaminated surfaces, are increasingly used and seen as stylish and essential materials in sectors such as architecture, design, appliances, industry, transport.
Thanks to excellent product features such as a wide variety of surface structures and colors as well as excellent workability and resistance to corrosion, pre-coated metals meet all creative requirements and guarantee quality of manufacture and sustainable construction.
In coils or flat sheets, pre-coated metals go through multiple processing operations before becoming finished products. The whole manufacturing process is therefore challenging for materials and they need the right protection to avoid damage.
As a key partner of coil coating and paint companies worldwide, Novacel is a recognized expert in the surface protection of pre-coated metals. A long-standing member of the European Coil Coating Association, Novacel is aware of market expectations and continuously offers tailor-made protection solutions for its customers.

Do you need to protect "cool colours" or "PVDF Cool Coatings"?
Cool colors are used in the pre-coated metals market and are processed mostly in the US.
A high-performance PVDF paint system for architectural metals
PVDF is also often referred to as Kynar 500, the reference brand on the market. It can be applied on steel or aluminum substrates on coil coating lines. Coating systems of this kind comprise PVDF and acrylic resin, plus ceramic pigments. The features of the product are its remarkable color, durability and strong resistance to sunlight. This paint technology was in fact specially formulated to enable the paint coating to efficiently reflect away ultraviolet radiation and help it remain cool. It uses a two-coat system (primary & finish coatings). The paint finishes may be standard or more structured.
