AKRON, OHIO - During National Sun Safety Week (June 1-7, 2010), the Sun Safety Alliance encourages people of all ages to protect themselves from the dangers of ultraviolet (UV) ray exposure. But what about your house? Dangerous UV rays can also have a damaging effect on the exterior of your home unless you take the right precautions.
"Just like humans, our houses need protection from the sun," says David Venarge, chairman of APV Engineered Coatings. "And, just like people use sunscreen to protect their skin, we recommend homeowners use NeverFadeTM paint with UV blockers and high quality pigments to protect their home exteriors."
Ideal for areas that experience extreme weather conditions, such as coastal locations and deserts, NeverFade represents a homeowner's investment in a low-maintenance lifestyle. Once applied, homeowners can forget about it for years.
"The Sun Safety Alliance warns people that concrete, sand, water and snow reflect 85 to 90 percent of the sun's UV rays," says Venarge. "Just imagine what daily exposure from these elements and powerful sun rays can do to the outside of your home for 12 or 13 hours a day."
Backed by an unprecedented 15 year warranty against fading, NeverFade with Kynar
Aquatec® is like sunscreen for the home. "This exterior paint resists chalking, fading, algae, fungus, stains and abrasions, and will not pick up dirt," says Venarge. "Best of all, this water-based paint is eco-friendly and has low volatile organic compounds (VOCs)."
Available nationwide to registered contractors for use on residential homes of all sizes, 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.

custom engineered products that are sold worldwide to a wide variety of industries. For more information on products and services, visit www.apvcoatings.com or call 800-772-3452.
