For durable, architectural aluminum building components, the construction industry most often relies on two types of finishes: anodize and paint. Both offer a long-lasting finish, but each has its own characteristics inherent in its application. This presentation will help attendees to better understand weathering performance and sustainable goals of architectural PVDF paints, baked enamels, powder coating and anodize finishes including the strength and weaknesses of each. Much more than enhancing appearance, a finish specification can be the difference in creating lasting performance and a lasting impression.
