Dura Coat Partners with Coated Metals Group to Deliver Innovative Roofing Solutions
New Ceranamel XT40S Product Designed to Show 3-Dimensional Appearance
Glen Mills, PA –October 31, 2016: Dura Coat Products, Inc., an Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA) company, is partnering with Coated Metals Group (CMG) to combine innovative engineering and the advanced technology of Dura Coat coil products to produce state-of-the-art roofing and siding materials. CMG is a leading manufacturer of pre-finished steel products for the commercial and residential property construction industry.
Dura Coat coating technologies being used on CMG construction projects include Durapon™ 70, a premium PVDF coating that is harder and more flexible than other PVDF coatings, and Ceranamel™ XT40S-SMP, a smooth durable polyester resin formulated to provide superior resistance to chalking, fading and environmental weathering.
Dura Coat worked closely with CMG to design a special wrinkle-textured polyester version of XT40S, called Krypt-Stone, which will give a unique 3-dimensional appearance, enhance abrasion resistance and increase scratch-resistance during installation. These innovative formulations designed to deliver long-term exterior weathering performance makes Dura Coat coatings a leading choice for commercial and residential applications.
“The unique metal roofing engineering designs by CMG combined with our innovative coatings technology truly combines the best of both worlds,” said Dr. Miyung Ki Hong, President and Chairman of Dura Coat. “This powerhouse partnership with Dura Coat and CMG will continue to produce highly durable metal roofing solutions for customers across the United States.”
CMG headquarters are established in Madison, Wisconsin with additional production and distribution facilities in Denver, Colorado, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Indianapolis, Indiana. Utilizing 33 years of manufacturing experience, CMG consistently provides high quality products that illustrate their design and engineering expertise to deliver exceptional value to the customer. CMG is expanding its operations by opening two new production facilities in Phoenix, Arizona beginning January 2017.
“We are delight to partner with a company like Dura Coat who continually demonstrates their commitment to developing consistently innovative products that are also respectful to the environment.” said Gary Woodward, President of Coated Metals Group. “Working closely with their chemists has helped ensure exceptional color match on production bathes, boosting our already high confidence in delivering beautiful and protective materials.”
