Wausau, Wisconsin -- Linetec introduces a new paint finish to mimic the look and feel of natural terra cotta. The finish utilizes a 70% PVDF resin-based coating to achieve the highest levels of performance in an exterior environment and a texture additive to help replicate the natural feel of terra cotta.

“There is no doubt terra cotta wall panels have made a significant splash in the building fašade market,” says Jon Close, Linetec’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Terra cotta offers a unique and attractive element to any building envelope. While this new finish cannot replicate all of the properties and design elements of terra cotta, we can offer a paint finish on wall panels that looks and feels like the real thing. And, we can do it at a cost that may better fit projects where terra cotta is desired, but cannot be afforded.”

In addition to affordability, Close also notes that aluminum wall panels painted with the terra cotta finish are lighter, can come in a large variety of shapes and sizes, and can be delivered in a shorter time frame. Furthermore, Linetec’s new paint is available in four color choices of terra cotta.

As a 70% polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based coating, Linetec’s terra cotta painted finish meets the requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s most stringent, high-performance specification standard, AAMA 2605-13. These architectural finishes are tested to exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals.

As an environmentally responsible finisher, Linetec safely captures and destroys the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in liquid paints at the factory before arrival on the building site. These industry-leading practices complement other green building choices, such as using recycled aluminum content, and ensure a long-lasting, durable and sustainable finish.
