Dura Coat coating technologies being used on CMG construction projects include Durapon™ 70, a premium PVDF coating that is harder and more flexible than other PVDF coatings, and Ceranamel™ XT40S-SMP, a smooth, durable polyester resin formulated to provide superior resistance to chalking, fading and environmental weathering. The partnership has already yielded some noteworthy projects, such as construction by Heritage Goodhew, leaders in metal roofing installation and repair.
“The unique metal roofing engineering designs by CMG combined with our innovative coatings technology truly combines the best of both worlds,” said Dr. Miyung Ki Hong, President and Chairman of Dura Coat. “This powerhouse partnership between Dura Coat and CMG will continue to produce highly durable metal roofing solutions for customers across the United States.”
Dura Coat worked closely with CMG to design a special wrinkle-textured polyester version of XT40S, called Krypt-Stone, which will give a unique 3-dimensional appearance, enhance abrasion resistance and increase scratch-resistance during installation. These innovative formulations designed to deliver long-term exterior weathering performance make Dura Coat coatings a leading choice for commercial and residential applications.
CMG headquarters was established in Madison, Wisconsin with additional production and distribution facilities in Denver, Colorado, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Indianapolis, Indiana. Utilizing 33 years of manufacturing experience, CMG consistently provides high quality products that illustrate its design and engineering expertise to deliver exceptional value to the customer. CMG is expanding its operations by opening two new production facilities in Phoenix, Arizona, and Salt Lake City, Utah, beginning January 2017.
“We are delighted to partner with a company like Dura Coat and Axalta who continually demonstrate their commitment to developing consistently innovative products that are also respectful to the environment,” said Gary Woodward, President of Coated Metal Group. “Working closely with their chemists has helped ensure exceptional color match on production batches, boosting our already high confidence in delivering beautiful and protective roofing and construction materials.”
