Alesta® AP Architectural Coating
Description

Textures/ Finishes:

As well as a 'Standard durable' finish, DuPont has developed ‘Superdurable’ finishes for extremely hostile environments.

The range includes full gloss, semi-gloss and matt finishes, and varying levels of textures such as leatherette, wrinkled and sand textured. Both speckled and metallic finishes are readily available and, increasingly, pearlescents and other new variants are being specified to give an outstanding decorative effect.

Standards:

ALESTA® AP architectural grade polyester coatings are manufactured and tested in accordance with an ISO 9000 quality system to ensure excellent performance and colour consistency.

Polymers and pigments satisfy or exceed the requirements of:

  • Application to aluminium: To BS EN 12206-1.
  • Application to galvanized steel: To BS EN 13438.
  • Fire propagation: To BS 476-6, Index below required limits.
  • Surface spread of flame: To BS 476-7, Class 1.
  • Combined fire test result: Class 0 as defined by Building Regulations.

Coatings are guaranteed for 25 years when applied by a DuPont Powder Coating approved applicator.
