FluroponEffects-Nova-Black_web.jpgHighlighting its stretch forming and finishing capabilities during the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention and Expo, Linetec displays curved aluminum extrusions finished in Valspar's Fluropon® Effects new Nova color family.

Stretch Forming by Linetec allows architectural product manufacturers to have their metal building components curved and finished in one location. As one of the largest architectural finishing companies in the U.S., Linetec also is one of the only to provide thermal improvement services for curved and radius, finished aluminum extrusions backed with an industry-leading warranty.

Linetec_Thermal+Radius_Rolled.jpgOffering richer, deeper hues with an intense gold or silver sparkle, Valspar's Nova colors are part of Valspar's Fluropon Effects line of 70 percent polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based architectural coatings. Linetec has selected blue, black, orange and white as samples in booth #1143.

These finishes meet the stringent standards of AAMA 2605-13, providing outstanding color and gloss retention, withstanding extreme weathering, and resisting dirt, stains, chalking and fading. Durable finishes, thermal comfort and energy performance can be combined with recycled aluminum content, daylight, views and other environmental benefits for recognition by such green building and design guidelines as the U.S. Green Building System's LEED® certification.

Linetec_Thermal+Radius_Strut.jpgUtilizing Linetec's dedicated fleet of trucks also saves customers shipping costs and transit time, as well as reduces material handling and packaging to minimize the opportunity for damage.
