A LUMIFLON-based coating:

  • Resists degradation due to weathering and exposure to ambient chemicals
  • Over the course of many years, loses little of its thickness
  • Keeps corrosion initiators from getting past the topcoat and degrading the zinc-rich primer underneath
  • Has an estimated coating life of 60 years or more


Because LUMIFLON-based coatings offer crisp, clean colors and a wide range of glosses, designers and builders choose them to achieve a superior look from day one. And with LUMIFLON’s ability to resist UV degradation, corrosion, and the ill-effects of chemical exposure, projects using LUMIFLON continue looking good for years to come with little or no maintenance required. That means markedly less fading, discoloration or chalking for the life of the coating – which is estimated at up to 60 years!


  • Ambient or elevated temperature cure – field or shop applied coatings
  • Solvent soluble – clean crisp colors and a wide gloss range
  • Versatile – solvent grade, solid, water based and powder coating resins offered
  • OH functional – polyurethane chemistry, use standard paint equipment
  • Fluoropolymer segments-ultra-weatherable and corrosion resistant
  • Longer life cycle – up to 60 years

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Zion’s Cooperative Mercantile Institution (ZCMI) was founded by Brigham Young in 1868. The ZCMI façade restoration was a daunting project; it required special care to the various pieces of cast iron and sheet metal cornice section. To compliment the façade’s extensive preparation, provide the best protection from ultraviolet (UV) degradation and weathering, and provide the best possible aesthetic, the ZCMI restoration was completed using an array of Tnemec high-performance coating systems, including Tnemec’s Fluoronar coatings, which include Lumiflon fluoropolymer technology.

In 2012, The Great American Tower in Cincinnati, OH won the Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS2) Award by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) for the 13-story tiara that crowns the skyscraper. HOK Architects of St. Louis, MO, designed the tiara, which uses over 400 tons of arching structural steel and hollow sections in varied widths. For extreme durability and gloss retention, the Great American Tower tiara was coated using Tnemec Company’s 3 stage coating system with a topcoat of their Series 1072 Fluoronar fluoropolymer coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.
