Home to the University of Hawaii’s Warriors football team and frequent site of football’s Pro Bowl, Aloha Stadium near Honolulu, Hawaii is the state’s largest outdoor arena and boasts a 50,000 seat capacity.
The next time you are enjoying one of the many sporting events televised from this tropical location, look at the stadium’s roof for the “Aloha Green” panels we manufactured here at Corrugated Metals.
Working with coils of structural aluminum, we applied a durable Duranar® XL 4-part fluoropolymer coating system that consisted of an 0.8 mil primer, 0.8 mil barrier coat, 0.8 mil color, 0.8 mil clear coat on both sides. This coating was chosen because of its ability to retain its vibrant color under the constant gaze of the tropical sun while providing outstanding resistance to weathering. As part of the roll forming process, we pre-heated the painted coils and added an additional silicone lubricant to protect the high performance paint system from fabrication induced stresses.
We manufactured a total of 150,000 sq-ft of roofing panels in 36” widths and various lengths within a 6 week time frame. We stacked the panels interleaved with protective sheets to prevent damage to the surface finish, and loaded them into a shipping container for ocean transport to Hawaii.
