Commercial architecture serves multiple purposes. These designs often seek to attract new businesses to become tenants or for existing companies to provide essential functioning spaces for staff and visitors. For large businesses, their company headquarters serve as a physical representation of their brand and even mission. While commercial office parks seek to attract leaseholders with contemporary designs that fit a variety of potential industries.

A Comparison of Paint Systems for Architectural Materials

ALPOLIC metal composite materials (MCM) are some of the most sought-after architectural products because of their quality, versatility and the wide range of finishes. While there are options, choosing the wrong paint system can leave you with a finish that looks muted after just a few years. We often receive inquiries about the types of paint used in manufacturing our MCM, specifically what the differences are between polyester and more expensive fluoropolymer finishes. While they do look similar, at least initially, the variances are more often seen in their performance over time and are clear when reviewing the warranty limitations. Understanding the chemical component of each helps our customers make informed decisions about what is best for their specific projects.
