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

Constructed in 1967, the signature bright red forum was once the premier music and sports arena in Inglewood, California. In its heyday, The Forum was the home for the Los-Angeles Lakers basketball team, the Los Angeles Kings National Hockey League team and host to many major musical acts. During the 1980s, the naming rights were sold and the building’s exterior metal panels were painted blue. However, by the late 2000s, the blue panels had greatly deteriorated. Using a high-performance coating system from Tnemec, which includes a fluoropolymer coating with Lumiflon FEVE resin, The Forum was revitalized to its former glory in its signature “Forum Red.” Continue reading Read More

Country Club Receives Long-Lasting Lumiflon Roof Recoating

In some of the more extreme climates of the United States, standing seam metal roof systems tend to experience coating failures more rapidly and severely. The roofs of buildings on the Olde Florida Golf Course in Naples, Florida had experienced inconsistent weathering from panel to panel, as well as some panels having been rusted all the way through. As restoration was long overdue, the owner contacted All-Tech Coatings of Romeoville, IL, for their expertise in standing seam metal roof recoating. To provide the best ultraviolet (UV) protection, color and gloss retention, All-Tech Coatings applied their proven roof coating system using PPG’s Coraflon ADS coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resin technology.

LEED Platinum San Diego Airport Uses Exterior Steel With FEVE Coating

In a move towards sustainability, the San Diego International Airport sought to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum terminal design. Not only does the airport terminal utilize alternative energy sources and green building materials, it also features high performance, low volatile organic compound (VOC) coating systems from Tnemec. All exterior exposed steel, including canopies and two sky bridges, used Tnemec’s Series 1071V Fluoronar coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resins for long lasting protection against ultraviolet (UV) light, along with high gloss and color retention.
