LUMIFLON CORROSION RESISTANCE

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

LUMIFLON AESTHETICS

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!

LUMIFLON ADVANTAGES

  • 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

In 2013, the city of Midland, Texas finished the construction of the Midland Composite Elevated Tank, a two million gallon water storage tower that sits above the T-Bar Well Field. Located in one of the driest areas in the country, the tank would have little downtime, so it was imperative that a low maintenance coating system would match the life cycle. The engineers chose Tnemec’s Series 700 Hydroflon with Lumiflon FEVE Resin technology as the exterior coating for its proven resistance to ultraviolet damage, as well as its long-term color and gloss retention.

Bailey’s Crossroads Skyline Offices Revitalized With FEVE Resin Coatings

Architectural Coatings, PPG, Lumiflon, Coraflon ADS, FEVE Resin, Fluoropolymer

The Bailey’s Crossroads Skyline buildings in Arlington, VA were completed in the 1970s. The original black coatings used on the aluminum façade of the building had transformed to a dark brown, mud-like color that were in need of dire attention. In 2001, the building’s former owners, Charles E. Smith Co. then hired William Pegues of Weigh Design Group who contacted his representatives at PPG. They recommended Coraflon ADS with Lumiflon FEVE flouropolymer resin-based coating for its field applicability, durability and extensive color selection that match factory applied coatings.
