UTILIZING 70% KYNAR PAINT TO MEET AAMA 2605 SPECIFICATIONS, LOEWEN’S NEW EXPANSIVE FINISH PALETTE PROVIDES THE PERFECT FINISHING TOUCH FOR FULFILLING YOUR VISION.
We know that color selection, finishes and style choices are critical long-term commitments, which is why we are dedicated to providing aesthetic options that not only inspire and fulfill your vision, but also have the quality and performance to uphold it. We understand your need for a wide selection of color options, that’s why we have worked with industry professionals and designers to expand our palette of exterior metal cladding colors and finishes. With industry-leading performance and the best range of finish options, Loewen will provide your palette of inspiration.
The most commonly used paints in architectural applications in North America are 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) or fluoropolymer paints. The PVDF resin we use is 70% Kynar 500 – a high-performance paint that has been enhanced with ceramic pigmentation. The qualities of this paint provide robust weathering, fade and chalk resistance and a beautiful finish that lasts for decades when cared for properly. With their excellent appearance and preservative qualities, these paints meet the specifications of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2605.

For a durable alternative to paints and organic coatings, our Anodized Finishes offer a rich matte look that hides small surface defects and reduces sunlight glare. In addition to the aesthetically desirable etching, our Anodized Finishing also increases resistance to corrosion and abrasion on aluminum. This aluminum is 100 per cent recyclable and uses a water-based process with no volatile organic compounds for eco-friendliness.

METAL CLADDING OPTIONS
There are better things to do in life than paint. That’s why Loewen offers a low maintenance option — windows and doors with extruded aluminum exteriors. As you can see, our aluminum cladding is available in a wide array of beautiful, durable colors. All colors are created from Kynar-based paint that has been enhanced with ceramic pigmentation — meaning our finishes are better able to stand up to direct sunlight, extreme temperature variations and acidic pollutants.
But making our windows tough on the outside does not mean we ever compromise on the inside. All interior wood surfaces of Loewen metal clad windows retain the beauty of natural Coastal Douglas Fir or optional Mahogany.
Loewen uses extruded aluminum cladding to better protect your window and door exteriors — as well as to eliminate the need for painting. Our thick extruded aluminum cladding retains its shape, resists denting, and lasts longer than roll-formed aluminum. In addition, Loewen’s window cladding is set away from the underlying wood, creating an air space that improves thermal performance.
The broad variation in Loewen sizes, shapes and designs and the demanding environmental conditions that our product encounters requires an alloy that has the ability to:
- Withstand serious impact without sustaining damage.
- Allow intricate extrusion detailing.
- Provide the malleability necessary to clad the many sizes and shapes we offer.
- Deliver the unequaled environmental durability for which aluminum is known.
- Provide a substrate that enhances colorfast paint performance.
