This Lumiflon-enriched product offers benefits that many other coatings do not. The fluoropolymer provides exceptional color and gloss retention and unmatched weatherability, which helps prevent against coating degradation. FEVE-based coatings also help reduce lifecycle costs, as their hyper-durability allow a coating to resist degradation in the face of UV radiation, salt, and water for decades.
