  • Solvent Grades

    LUMIFLON solvent based resins have been in use for more than 25 years, in applications as diverse as bridge coatings, coil coatings for architectural applications, automotive coatings, and aerospace coatings. These ultra-weatherable resins can be formulated into coatings with a wide range of gloss and color. They can be used in the field for re-coating of structures, or in the shop to manufacture pre-coated panels. Typical applications are shown below.

  • Water Emulsion Grades

    LUMIFLON emulsion grade resins were developed as solvent free alternatives to traditional fluororesins. These resins can be formulated into single component or two component coatings that have excellent weatherability. The development of LUMIFLON emulsions involved modifications of the LUMIFLON chemical structure, shown below.

  • LUMIFLON Water Dispersion Grade

    LUMIFLON FD-1000 is a water dispersion resin, developed as a solvent free alternative to traditional LUMIFLON resins.  FD-1000 is made by partially carboxylating a standard LUMIFLON resin, neutralizing with an amine, stripping solvent, then dispersing the resulting product in water.  FD-1000 is usually formulated into two component coatings with excellent weatherability.
