ColorLume® VF-20L is derived from a reliable 2-coat, 2-bake Fluorocarbon (PVDF) process with over 70% of KYNAR® 500 or HYLAR® 5000 as the top coat. The substract is made from AZ200 alloy coated steel sheets. AZ is an alloy comprising 55% Aluminum, 43.5% Zinc and 1.5% Silicon. AZ200 refers to the coating mass in g/ m2 on both sides.
ColorLume® VF-20L can resist city grime, solarisation, dirt staining and acid rain. Under these severe conditions in this region, ColorLume® VF-20L steel sheets are able to preserve its pleasing appearance and have excellent colour retention properties.
A 2nd generation CLEAN pre-painted Al-Zn product combining corrosion resistance, high weatherbility and ease of maintenance. Colorlume iClean® technology is directly incorporated into the coating thereby ensuring it long-term performance. Highly recommended for exterior architectural applications where retention of aesthetics is important.
M Metal is capable of roll forming non-ferrous steel such as aluminum, copper, and titanium-zinc subject to the minimum quantity.
Aluminum in PVDF coating is the most popular material among other non-ferrous steel. It’s available in M-Zip 420 and M-Seam 530/25 or M-Seam 505/38 profile with thickness of 0.70mm to 0.90mm.
