Fluoropolymers Maintain Performance Over “Long Periods of Time.” How Long?

Coatings based on LUMIFLON have successfully passed exposure testing of 20 years.  We have a case study of a bridge coated in Japan in 1986 that still looks great after 27 years.  Analytical testing, based on the degradation rate of the LUMIFLON,  predicts lifetimes nearing 100 years until full coating erosion. The key to this performance is proper formulation of the LUMIFLON coating.  This requires the use of the most durable raw materials, especially TiO2 as well as formulating at optimum PVC.
