Notes on Field Repairs and Cleaning

American Warming and Ventilating cannot warrant any field painting done to our louvers. For touch-up and minor field repairs, American Warming and Ventilating can supply small quantities of matching air-dry Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish on request. For large areas or refinishing the entire louver, contact American Warming and Ventilating Customer Service. The surface must be clean and free of dirt or contaminates before any paint is applied to the Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish surface.


WARNING! Do not use Acetone to clean the surface of the Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish or do not use paints which may contain Acetone. Also, do not use any lacquer-type paints on the surface of the Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish. These chemicals may permanently damage the Kynar 500® PVDF resin-based finish. Their use VOIDS the warranty.
