AkzoNobel’s Roofs Well Weathered
The rising popularity of metal roofing in North America shows no sign of slowing down, fueled by growth in commercial, residential and industrial construction and renovation activity.
At AkzoNobel, time and resources are invested in its testing and weathering program. For decades, the company’s metal coatings have been assessed at weathering facilities in South Florida and other locations around the world. The real-world exposure program is the largest in the industry, with over 40,000 panels in South Florida alone. Test panels are regularly reviewed to evaluate performance, increase understanding and predict how they will perform across the fullest range of weather conditions.
Take CERAM-A-STAR 1050, for example, the market-leading silicone-modified polyester coating from AkzoNobel.  CERAM-A-STAR 1050 was measured for color change and gloss retention after years of exposure, demonstrating exceptional product performance and best in class gloss and color retention, even when exposed to harsh elements like, UV, humidity, salt spray and driving rain.

An Alternative to EG, HDG
FeGuard from Chemcoaters is an innovative, thin-film, corrosion-inhibiting coating specifically designed for use on hot-rolled pickled and oiled and cold-rolled steel substrates. FeGuard offers an alternative to coatings such as electrogalvanized and hot-dipped galvanized G40, with performance properties to match, Chemcoaters claims.
FeGuard’s corrosion-inhibiting package provides a clear, high-gloss finish that allows the brightness of the underlying metal to shine through, while simultaneously slowing corrosive forces that might affect the part during its useful life.
In addition to its corrosion-inhibiting attributes, FeGuard is also anti-fingerprint and is easily formable.
