The Fluoropolymer Advantage
Colour & Gloss Retention of 30 Years
Excellent Corrosion Protection
Lower Life-Cycle Maintenance Costs
Outstanding Chemical Resistance
Unlimited Colour and Gloss Range
Fluoropolymer Coatings have completely re-written the role of the topcoat. Instead of being an aesthetic appendix to the paint system, it becomes a major protection asset to the primers and substrate, as well as enhancing the aesthetics all at the same time. Fluoropolymer Coatings gives you excellent colour retention and you the peace of mind that your substrate will be protected from the harsh New Zealand UV rays, while upholding its colour and sheen longer than anything on the market
Vitreflon coatings offer and virtually unlimited range of colours including metallic and pearl finishes for a standout architectural finish. Gloss levels are available range for a high gloss down to a completely matt finish, catering for vast architectural expression.
And one of the best features of Vitreflon, it continues to look great year after year!
Architects, engineers, specifiers and asset owners choose Vitreflon because it provides them with the ability to achieve great finishes and gives them confidence in coating performance with little or no major maintenance throughout the life of the coating- estimated at up to 60 years.
Each year, corrosion related issues cost countries billions of dollars and can dramatically add to a projects overall lifecycle cost. Therefore using the best corrosion resistant technology available will dramatically decrease the overall life cycle cost of a project.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten!
One consideration is initial price, another and altogether different consideration is long term value. With Vitreflon coatings the difference becomes very clear.
Vitreflon coatings typically last 2-3 times longer than high quaility polyurethane coatings. In this day and age the costs of maintenance are going upwardmaking it more and more important to consider the long term value of your coating solution.
Vitreflon coatings are used to protect steel, CFC, fibrelass, GRC, concrete and other materials from the harmful effects of UV, rain, wind and chemicals.
