Sherwin-Williams' Kem Aqua® BP Siding Plus Offers Superior Finishing & Drying Properties
- Jul 5, 2012
CLEVELAND, OH -- Sherwin-Williams Product Finishes Division introduces Kem Aqua® BP Siding Plus, a performance siding coating that provides an enhanced finish compared to "machine finishes" in terms of appearance, application, hardness and drying time. It can be applied to a wide variety of substrates, including plastic/composites, wood and fiberglass for both exterior and interior use.
Aesthetically, Kem Aqua BP Siding Plus resists color- and gloss-fading for an attractive, long-lasting finish. It resists chipping and cracking and is available in a wide range of colors. Solar reflective technology is optional for heat-sensitive substrates; it repels heat in dark colors and helps prevent warping and bowing that could result from exposure to sunlight.
Kem Aqua BP Siding Plus can be applied using a variety of coating methods, including curtain, flood and spray coating. It also dries to a harder finish faster than typical machine finishes, providing excellent adhesion and enhancing stackability. Field touch-ups are fast and easy. Available limited warranties extend up to 25 years.
It is a waterborne product with low VOC (1.0 lbs/gallon, less water) and low HAPs.
"Kem Aqua BP Siding Plus offers something for everyone," said Chuck Susnis, Market Development Director, Wood & Composite Building Products at Sherwin-Williams. "It provides excellent aesthetics, the primary concern of homebuyers. Builders and remodelers can be assured of its durability in a wide range of color options and color customization. Ease of application, plus a tough finish coat that dries quickly, makes it an excellent choice for finishers and siding manufacturers, along with low VOCs and HAPs."
