Akron, Ohio-based coatings manufacturer APV Engineering Coatings has introduced what it calls a new technology to its line of Vynguard performance coatings and finishes for OEMs.

Vynguard is ideally used for high-end wall coverings, mass transit seating and flexible decking, in applications ranging from hospitality and health care to marine and mass transit applications.

“We engineered the new formulation to meet the needs of a manufacturer of outdoor PVC decking material,” said Erin Brown, director of marketing and business development, APV Engineered Coatings.

“The manufacturer wanted the durability, stain performance and weldability of the thermoplastic polymer in our Vynguard Polycarbonate formula, but they also wanted anti-microbial features to help resist against pink staining in wet and humid environments. Now, we’re extending this formula into indoor applications where moisture, dirt, staining and bacterial contamination are common issues.”

APV notes that the new formula is water-based and low-VOC and adds that its high crosslink density and UV inhibitors help it exceed industry standards for resisting UV degradation, shedding dirt and protecting against stains.
