Vitraflon 700™ - Fluropolymer Based Finish
Excellent Weather Resistance
After being exposed to a 12,000 hour accelerated weathering test using
the sunshine Carbon Arc Weatherometer, Vitraflon™ will retain more then 80%
of its original gloss. Vitraflon™ not only protects substrate materials for
years but also secures the long lasting beauty of their colour surfaces.
Now architects can exploit fluoropolmer's unique weathering performance
in the colour or colour combination of their choice.
Vitraflon 700™ is applicable on exterior cladding panels wherever
long-term maintenance-free life is an essential consideration.
Where the best quality polyurethane may be expected to contribute
aesthetically to a structure for in excess of 10 years, the life
expectancy of Vitraflon 700™ is at least 40-50 years. It is available
in gloss, satin, metallic or pearl. The satin (45 ±5% gloss)
is preferred for building exteriors to minimize glare.
Excellent resistance to scrubbing and sand abrasion
Excellent resistance to organic and inorganic acid. Good resistance
to alkalis. Excellent resistance to water-splash and immersion.
Excellent resistance to solvents, petrol and oils.
Permanent flexibility has been built into the fluoropolymer. It will never embrittle.
Vitraflon 700™ has very low surface energy consequently dirt does not readily
