Case Study: Toyota Chooses Fluropon Coating for Headquarters

Sherwin-Williams Toyota headquarters

By Sherwin Williams.  

Sherwin Williams’ Coil Coatings flagship 70% PVDF coating system compliments curved roof panels of Toyota Motors Headquarters as it brings durability and energy efficiency to the building. 

Shortly after Toyota Motors announced they would be moving their headquarters to Plano, Texas construction began. The new building was to be designed by Corgan Architects to accommodate 4,000 employees and to be constructed out of glass walls to let in natural light. A metal roof was selected for its weatherability against Texas weather conditions.  

Bemo USA supplied the straight and curved Galvalume roof panels for the new headquarters. To achieve the unique shape of these roofs, Bemo custom-made the asymmetrical curved panels. These panels were field-formed in continuous lengths – up to 160 feet long. The metal was then curved to the precise radius of each location and craned in bundles into place. In the North Texas region, high winds and hail occur regularly, and these steel roof panels will meet the high uplift values and hold up well during hail conditions. 

For more than 20 years, Bemo has used Sherwin-Williams coil coatings on its metal. The straight and curved roof panels were coated with Sherwin-Williams Fluropon® Classic II in the custom solar reflective color, Pewter Mica. Solar reflective coatings from Sherwin-Williams are energy-efficient colors that help meet LEED requirements. These coatings provide exceptional weatherability and proven durability, while helping to reflect UV rays from the sun, which lowers the energy costs to cool the building. The Toyota Headquarters qualified for a LEED Platinum rating, due to its incorporation of metal roof panels with solar reflective coatings, as well as other sustainable efforts.
