According to window and door industry trade journals, articles and statistics, more than 95% of PVC / Vinyl windows and doors are sold with manufacturer standard colors.  Many homeowners today have the desire to add brilliant colors to their homes by painting these windows and doors with colors that range from dark browns to blues, red, and other vibrant shades.

(Please see our photo gallery for sample colors available.)

The main issues with painting PVC / Vinyl windows and doors with darker colors are:

  • Proper Adhesion
  • Peeling
  • Heat Reflectivity
  • Fading
  • Cracking
  • Warping
  • Blistering
  • UV Protection

Blue River Coatings produces a coating that is used by several major PVC / Vinyl window, door and trim board manufacturers to paint almost any color desired.  The Hydro-Flex PIR Polyurethane top coating manufactured by Blue River Coatings has heat reflective pigments that minimize heat gain.  This product is water-based, has a low VOC, is EPA compliant and provides excellent adhesion, mar and abrasion resistance and is extremely durable.  Hydro-Flex provides outstanding coverage and is easy to apply.

The Hydro-Flex PIR product incorporates heat reflective technology that includes heat reflective pigments.  The pigments that are used are designed to reflect different wavelengths of infrared (IR) energy away from the substrate surface, keeping the surface cooler.  When the Blue River Coatings heat reflective technology is used in conjunction with the Blue River Coatings specialty polyurethane resin, a substrate such as vinyl or plastic can now be painted with darker shades of color without causing damage to the substrate as a result of heat gain.  Hydro-Flex PIR can also be used to paint vinyl siding.

 

AAMA approved and ASTM tested, Hydro-Flex PIR water based polyurethane paint by Blue River Coatings is the safest high-performance finish you will ever find.  No noxious fumes to breathe, no fire hazard to worry about and no expensive hazardous waste clean up and disposal.

In addition to Hydro-Flex PIR, Blue River Coatings also manufacturers a variety of wood stains, wood primers, steel/aluminum coatings, acrylic primers/topcoats and many other products to meet all your homeowner paint/coating needs.  (Please see our Products section for all available products.)
