DJ Industrial Paint offers an unlimited choice of colors in all types of architectural paint finishes.
Liquid paint coatings are made up of 3 main ingredients:
Solvent: They dissolve all the constituents to obtain a formula easy to apply liquid.
Pigment: It is the color of a paint system.
Resin: They bind the components of the paint together. It is the ingredient that protects and preserves color and provides increased durability. It is the resin system that will determine the performance and properties of the paint. Acrylic, Epoxy, Polyester, Polyurethane, Vinyl, SMP and PVDF are different resin systems.
These data are approximate.
Liquid paint is applied to architectural metal coatings or other conductive surface by electrostatic spraying. The spraying is carried out in a spray booth under strictly controlled conditions in one or more coats (primer, finish, intermediate coat), depending on the type of liquid paint used. After spraying, the liquid paint is baked at high temperature or must air dry in a controlled environment according to the manufacturer's specifications.
A wide range of custom made colors in different finishes are offered.
Color creation is done here at the factory by our experienced colorists.
Supply is quick and easy.
Liquid paint provides a smooth finish.
Range of metallic products and anti-graffiti paint.
The pretreatment is the 1st step that the substrate undergoes. It gives the substrate anticorrosion protection, adhesion and durability of any paint film subsequently applied. The concentrations are tested twice a day by our laboratory for quality assurance.
We use a surface treatment; nano ceramic with zirconium. The choice to use this chromium-free nanotechnology is a greener choice, very high quality and with less ecological impact. These products are approved and certified by our manufacturers. All of our pretreatment products are free of solvent, water-based and free from regulated heavy metals. It does not require bath heating, higher treatment rate, no compound organic.
The substrate is then dried, painted, baked and submitted to our quality control team. Inspection of color, gloss, mil thickness and several other specifications of performance are checked at this stage.
Peinture Industrielle DJ offers a variety of architectural paints, including 70% PVDF resin based coatings (often referred to as Kynar or Kynar 500), which meet AAMA 2605 specification, 50% Kynar PVDF resin based coatings , silicone modified polyester (SMP) coatings, which meet AAMA 2604 specification, and acrylic resin-based coatings that meet AAMA 2603.
Under the ISO code PVDF we find the vinylidene fluoride polymer. The key to this resin is the bond created between carbon and fluorine, the strongest possible polymer connection. PVDF offers high resistance to abrasion, fire, very high UV stability, strong chemical resistance to acids, solvents and bases. Products based on 70% PVDF resin are those that provide the highest performance criteria in the architectural industry.
The French chemicals group Arkema is the world's leading producer of PVDF, which it markets under the name Kynar or Kynar 500®. The global market has other suppliers such as Solvay Solexis Inc. which markets Hylar or Hylar 5000® and Dyflor® marketed by Evonik Industries AG. PVDF resin (Kynar, Hylar or others) is therefore the raw material used to manufacture PVDF-based coatings.
The 50% PVDF resin coating is an intermediate alternative that meets AAMA 2604 standards. This coating offers excellent hardness, abrasion resistance, color retention and gloss.
Coating to be considered for its high resistance to abrasion, chipping and scratches. Excellent retention of color and shine. This coating brings a new level of durability to the architectural market at a lower cost.
Coating generally used for interior applications or where weather resistance is less. Single-layer system, the color is applied to the pretreated aluminum. Very economical cost.
Unlike powder paint which is a single coat system, liquid paint may require multiple coats depending on the type of coating chosen.
Clear top coats are generally required to protect and envelop metallic glitter or to give extra UV protection to bright and exotic colors.
Top coats are specified by manufacturers when required.
There is no added value to a topcoat on a 2-coat system unless it is recommended by the manufacturer. Topcoats when not required by the manufacturer will not increase the longevity, performance or warranty of the paint coating.
Here is a summary of paint products by coating types and their coating system offered by manufacturers.

We are certified applicators for offers you of Akzo Nobel and Sherwin Williams (Valspar) products. Experienced partnerships that can offer you products of the highest range in the architectural industry. Below, you will find a table explaining the warranty by type of product for each manufacturer.
The guarantees are made up of 2 main categories, namely the product guarantee and the decorative guarantee. Below is a brief description of the criteria covered by a warranty.
Flouring : Occurs when a metal surface is exposed to UV rays, the resin begins to decompose and degrade. The painted surface then takes on a whitish and chalky appearance.
Gloss Stability : The ability of surfaces to reflect directed light and this is a very important characteristic of the durability of the coating.
Film integrity : Adhesion is the qualitative property of a coating to be free from blemishes, chipping, cracking or inconsistency.
Discoloration : Action of intense exposure to UV rays, extreme temperature, humidity and pollution particles which gradually alters the pigments over time. Discoloration is calculated in Hunter Delta E (ΔE) units for a specific time period.
As a certified applicator, we are subject to periodic and random checks by our manufacturers to ensure that our systems meet industry architectural standards. To obtain manufacturer warranties, coatings must be applied to a virgin, architectural grade aluminum surface. Alloys accepted include AA6060, AA6063, AA5005, AA5053 or an appropriate equivalent. It is important to have alloys of architectural quality.
Any warranty extension request must be made at the time of the quote or purchase order. The length of the warranty may vary depending on the paint manufacturer, the type of paint, the color chosen, the location and the type of materials used in the project.
What is the American Architectural Manufacturer's Association standard (AAMA)?
AAMA is considered the leader in standards for architectural aluminum finishes. It creates performance requirement specifications for coating manufacturers and describes test procedures. The specifications indicate the level of performance to which the coating must meet.
There are 3 specifications to know :
Each level of AAMA specification requires chemical, mechanical and weathering tests that are performed on the coatings to judge their effect on film integrity and appearance.
All testing is done in Florida. Florida's climate allows sidings to be exposed to UV rays, moisture, and salty air on a constant basis. Once exposed to these conditions, aesthetic properties such as color and gloss are measured.
Considering that these tests are carried out in Florida, the climate, the UV rays, the salt air being in no way comparable with North America, we make sure to offer you products of a very high quality that will withstand easily to the climate of our regions.
Architectural liquid coatings are designed
keep their color and shine level
for several years.
In order to maintain the properties of the coating and the warranty, cleaning of the surfaces must be carried out according to the conditions of the manufacturers maintenance manual.
You will find in the "Document" section the
service manuals from our various manufacturers of
In the drop-down list you will find the warranty manuals of our manufacturers.
Grease or marks
Stronger cleaning products such as alcohol based products, mineral spirits, or 5% diluted bleach can be applied selectively. It is recommended to do a test on a small area before. Rinse the coating surface with water and dry it with a soft cloth.
Never use solvents, cleansers containing ketones.
Protective plastic wrap
Plastic wrap is used to protect painted surfaces during transport. They should not be left for a long period of time before installation. For glue or silicone residues, we recommend using "Le Dégommeur".
In the event of minor damage
If there is minor damage to the painted surface before or after installation such as a slight scratch or scuff mark, touch up bottles or aerosol cans may be provided. Please note, this is only for minor touch-ups, use on large areas may reduce or even void the warranty on a project.
Never use steel wool or abrasive brushes.
Spray paint application method
We do not recommend the use of an aerosol can however, if no option is possible you must use a " Scoth Brite " paper to sand the scratch and clean the surface to be touched up with a mild soap to remove dirt. sanding. Then apply the spray paint to the dry surface.
Touch-up bottle application method
The touch-up bottle can be used to cover small flaws. Only applied to a clean painted surface.
