Introduction
Kawneer Permacover and Permacover Plus are high quality polyester powder paint finishes, offering over 130 standard and 31 metallic paint colours.
 
Kawneer’s world leadership in architectural aluminium systems has been achieved through an insistance on product quality and performance. Kawneer’s in-house paint plant gives complete control over paint quality on all Kawneer profiles.
 
Permacover and Permacover Plus solid and metallic paint finishes provide outstanding resistance to environmental conditions.
 
Application
Kawneer Permacover and Permacover Plus are ideal coatings for the full range of Kawneer architectural aluminium systems.
 
All aluminium profiles are chemically pre-treated prior to the application of coatings, which are fully heat-cured to produce the final protective coating.
 
Permacover has a matt surface appearance; it is also available in gloss and satin finish for both solid and metallic colours.
 
Performance
Kawneer Permacover and Permacover Plus are durable, flexible, and impact resistant coatings and are applied to the aluminium profiles before fabrication.
 
The success of their performance lies in the control of the application process operated by Kawneer, to apply a single coating which provides greater protection than any alternative wet-spray, dip or electrophoretic paint system. By using polyester powders containing high quality pigments and resin systems proven by extensive exposure tests. Both Permacover and Permacover Plus provide impact and abrasion resistance with colour uniformity and an extensive colour range.
