Changing the Game --- With NeverFade Paint at EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville


AKRON, OHIO - Seeing the scores at Jacksonville Jaguars home football games just got easier. After five years with a fading background, scoreboards at EverBank® Stadium have a fresh coat of NeverFadeTM exterior paint called Black Jack, making the messages and scores "pop" in both end zones.

"Searing Florida sun bakes these scoreboards almost every day of the year," says Dave Spencer, owner of S. David & Co. Inc. "Traditionally the boards are repainted black every five years because they fade away over time with the unrelenting ultraviolet ray exposure they receive daily. This year, we recommended the new NeverFade exterior paint for the project because it's warranted to last 15 years without fading. This means the scores will stand out a decade from now just as they do today."

Both scoreboards were painted in August of 2010, over a 10-day period, by the team at S. David & Co. The crew transformed the scoreboards with nine gallons of NeverFade paint during a stadium shutdown between exhibition football games. "This paint has great potential for a wide variety of exterior projects in our area from gas stations to hospitals to churches," says Spencer, a Pro-X Certified ContractorTM. "We're quoting out a project now to paint a metal roof of a local adult community. The best part about investing in this paint for a project is that it completely resists fading, algae, fungus, stains and abrasions."

NeverFade paint, warranted to last 15 years against fading, was introduced by APV Engineered Coatings®, early in 2010. The professional exterior paint is formulated with Kynar Aquatec® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), a tough, engineered thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of properties. As a result, NeverFade paint withstands harsh thermal, chemical and ultraviolet environmental conditions. In essence, it resists abrasions, restricts the growth of mold and mildew, and will not pick up dirt.

"This top-of-the-line exterior paint has ultraviolet blockers and high quality pigments mixed with the fluoropolymer resin to further prevent against fading and chalking," says Thomas Venarge, president of APV Engineered Coatings out of Akron, Ohio. "To show our confidence in this product, we are offering an unprecedented warranty. In the unlikely event that someone is obliged to apply the warranty, we will provide the replacement of the product and payment for job-related labor costs."

Available nationwide for use on both residential and commercial projects, NeverFade may be applied to vinyl siding, PVC, wood, aluminum siding, stucco, masonry, and fiber cement surfaces. Since each paint order is custom made, NeverFade is available in an unlimited number of colors.
