PPG Building Products Glossary
PPG Extrusion Coatings Glossary
Extrusion coatings are intended for factory spray-application over pretreated aluminum building components such as store front, curtainwall, windows, plate panels and louvers.
AAMA: American Architectural Manufacturers Association.
Acrynar® coating: Ultra durable fluoropolymer extrusion coatings which meet the AAMA 2604 performance specification. These hard, yet smooth coatings are recommended for high traffic areas such as storefronts, schools, hospitals and high-rise condominiums.
Coraflon® and Coraflon XL® coating: Second-generation thermosetting fluoropolymer coatings which are spray-applied. These coatings are available in rich, vivid colors and a full range of glosses. Coraflon EX coatings are a minimum two coat system composed of a universal primer and a fluoropolymer topcoat for use over properly cleaned and pretreated aluminum substrates. They are an ideal choice for applications such as doors, windows or sash extrusions, handrails, poles, exterior light fixtures, fences and many others.
Duracron® coating: Acrylic-based coatings with performance equal to that of Polycron III finishes. These coatings meet the AAMA 2603 performance specification and are recommended for interior, residential, institutional and light commercial applications.
Duranar® coating: High-performance coatings which exceed the AAMA 2605 performance specification. These coatings are based on ultra-durable pigments and fluoropolymer resin technology. Duranar coatings are a minimum two-coat system, consisting of a primer and a durable color coat. Seventy percent of the Duranar coating resin system consists of either Kynar 500® resin manufactured by Arkema, Inc. or Hylar 5000® resin manufactured by Solvay Solexis, Inc. Recommended for use in normal environments when added protection against industrial or seacoast influences is not required.
Duranar® Sunstorm coating: A 2-coat Duranar coating where the color coat contains mica pearlescent flakes.
Duranar® XL coating: Duranar coating with a clear topcoat added. The XL topcoat is required over some brightly pigmented Duranar coatings and all colors containing metallic flakes in order to protect against ultraviolet, humidity and chemical attack. For added protection, the XL clear topcoat may be specified over any Duranar coating to improve the overall performance and ease of maintenance of the finish system.
Polycron® coating: High-solids polyester coatings formulated to comply with recent environmental air quality regulations. These coatings meet the AAMA 2603 performance specification and are recommended for interior, residential, institutional or light commercial applications.
PPG Coil Coatings Glossary

The coatings are two or three coats designed for use over properly cleaned and pretreated aluminum and steel substrates. They are an excellent choice for applications such as gas station buildings, canopies, building panels, roofs, signs, billboards, truck trailers, fences and many others.
Duracron® coating: A 1-coat acrylic coating for aluminum and steel substrates.
Duranar® coating: High-performance coatings based on ultra-durable pigments and fluoropolymer resin technology. Duranar coatings are a minimum two-coat system, consisting of a primer and a durable color coat.
