Aluminum extruders have been pre-finishing extrusions for many years. The practice has evolved into an art that in many instances has replaced outside finishers entirely. Advances in color fastness and development have allowed aluminum extruders like Tri-State Aluminum to offer more single source responsibility thereby saving both time and money in processing, handling and shipping with our painting and coating services.
Tri-State Aluminum has the ability to meet your color specification for your painted aluminum extrusion application with both Kynar and acrylic paints, including 50% & 70% PVDF coatings, polyesters, and silicone polyesters. These paints come in a wide range of colors available and offer excellent color consistency for your extrusion application.
We utilize spray-applied techniques, resulting in coated extrusions that can resist damage caused by chemicals, humidity, and other environmental factors. Spray-applied extrusions are best suited for architectural applications such as storefronts, curtainwalls, windows, and louvers where long-lasting color is required.
- Kynar – For variety and durability and there is no better way to finish your custom extrusion than by applying a Kynar-based resin coating from one of the world’s most famous manufacturer of paints. These “high performance” paints offer beauty and protection in the harshest of conditions. Typical end uses include: curtain wall, louver, window & door and other exterior applications. Color matching services are available at no additional cost or choose from literally “hundreds” of formulations that are computerized to provide uniformity and convenience.
- Acrylics – If variety, durability and price are your objective we offer the same colors and services in environmentally acceptable acrylic enamels. These paints have been universally accepted for almost 30 years and are the “workhorses” of the coatings world. Typical end uses include: signage, transportation, picture frame, awnings, point-of-purchase display, etc.
