Lumiflon will be presenting at this year’s Waterborne Symposium on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at the Astor Crowne Plaza in New Orleans. Technical Development Chemist, Donald Lawson will be giving a presentation regarding the latest developments in 1K FEVE Blends, specifically improved corrosion resistance.

Abstract: Fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) based topcoats are well known for their extremely long-lasting gloss and color retention exceeding 40 years of service. In this study, we evaluated blends of various acrylic resins to determine if the low water absorption and high durability against UV degradation of a FEVE-based resin can offer additional corrosive protection when used in a topcoat as a single pack 1K coating formulation. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was used along with other accelerated testing methods including cyclic salt fog/UV exposure to evaluate corrosion resistance.
