NeverFade paint perfectly complemented our goal of creating a showpiece home that was built green, energy efficient and safe to resist unique weather-related conditions
Akron, OH (PRWEB) March 18, 2011
Featuring NeverFade™ exterior paint in “Blue Bayou” and trimmed with NeverFade in “Coconut,” the NextGen Flex Home™ was a colorful addition to the 2011 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla.
Built by Champion Home Builders, Inc., the home will be donated to a family via “Rebuilding Together,” a Tampa, Fla., nonprofit organization which provides home repair services to low-income families, the elderly, military veterans and their families and persons with disabilities.
U.S. National Guard and Army veteran Waldemar Alameda, 39, his wife and two children are the recipients of the 2011 NextGen Home. After multiple tours of duty in Kosovo, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq, Alameda was severely injured by an IED explosion in Tikrit, Iraq, in 2007.
“NeverFade paint perfectly complemented our goal of creating a showpiece home that was built green, energy efficient and safe to resist unique weather-related conditions,” said Paul Barnett, president of iShow, producers of the NextGen Home Experience®.
The home features professional exterior paint, which won a 2010 Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award presented by Building Products magazine and has been named a “101 Best New Remodeling and Home Building Product of 2010” by Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler magazines and is formulated with Kynar Aquatec® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin. The resin helps make the paint resistant to fading, algae, fungus, stains, abrasions and dirt. The Kynar Aquatec® is dispersed into a water-based formula for NeverFade paint, so volatile organic compounds (commonly referred to as VOCs) are drastically reduced, making NeverFade very eco-friendly. Warranted to last 15 years against fading, NeverFade is manufactured by APV Engineered Coatings in Akron, Ohio.
NeverFade exterior paint has ultraviolet blockers and high quality pigments mixed with the fluoropolymer resin to further prevent against fading and chalking. It withstands harsh thermal, chemical and ultraviolet environmental conditions.
NeverFade™ Universal Primer was used as a first coat prior to application of the NeverFade exterior paint on the home’s Nichiha fiber cement siding. The water-based primer and the exterior paint both adhere to a wide variety of substrates, including wood, stucco, aluminum siding, vinyl siding, masonry and cement panels.
“NeverFade had excellent coverage and I only needed to apply one coat of the topcoat, says Tommy Boston, production manager of Champion Home Builders. The product was thick and creamy in texture, but sprayed great. I couldn’t have been happier with NeverFade Universal Primer’s outstanding adhesion to fiber cement.”
