In recent years aluminium has become a very widely used material in the construction industry. Light weight, good corrosion resistance and ease of fabrication lends itself to a whole variety of end uses. Although the tendency for aluminium to oxidise in the atmosphere is itself a form of chemical protection, improvements in weather and chemical resistance can be gained from the use of a variety of surface coatings. These coating technologies are typically of the following types polyvinylidine difluoride, waterborne electropaint, conventional solventbased paints, powder coatings and anodising. The two most popular technologies in use today are TGIC Triglycidyl isocyanuratepolyester powder coatings and polyvinylidine difluoride PVDF solventbased coatings. Coated aluminium has the added competition in the window frame and door frame market from uPVC. Only coated aluminium will be discussed in this paper.
