McElroy Metal offers three types of coatings for post frame buildings - polyester, Silicone Modified Polyester (SMP) and Kynar 500® (PVDF). The quality scale on these coatings is good, better and best, respectively. The ultimate coating of choice depends on factors such as budget and the desired long-term performance of the panel.
Kynar 500 (PVDF) coatings are proven to provide the best long-term performance of any coating in the marketplace and are recommended for any application that desires long-term aesthetic appeal. Kynar 500 (PVDF) coatings offer greater gloss retention and provide the highest protection against panel chalk and fade. The end results are beautiful roofs and walls that will retain their true color and luster year-after-year.
All McElroy Metal coatings are manufactured by the Valspar ® Corporation. Valspar is a recognized leader in the paint and coating industry, and McElroy Metal is proud to be a Valspar customer.
