OVER THE PAST CENTURY, THE GEODESIC DOME HAS EVOLVED FROM ITS ORIGINAL USE AS A PLANETARIUM TO A TOURIST- ATTRACTING PAVILION FOR EXHIBITS, to specialty buildings for events, to the most energy, material and space-efficient housing for dome dwellers all over the world. Covered with copper-painted metal shingles, the angled roof and dormers of this building make it a standout. A noteworthy design that deserves a noteworthy finish. For this home, Durapon 70 was the top choice. Chosen for its flexibility, durability and long-term performance, Dura Coat’s colorfast, cool pigments deflect UV rays to retain color and gloss. The tough surface of the premium coating resists installation scratching, scuffing, marring, staining and transit abrasion. A primary choice for galvalume, hot-dipped galvanized and aluminum substrate, when Durapon 70 is paired with Dura Coat’s thick-film primer for coastal and heavy industrial environments, the result is a top-of-the-line coil coating. Make the top choice for your building. For more information about this nature-friendly formulation that complies with the Cool Roof Rating Council, Energy Star and LEED standards, and reduces the carbon footprint, call 951-341-6500 or 256-350-4300.

Durapon 70 ™ fluorocarbon easily withstands post forming of shingles and shakes.
