Throughout the United States, schools with metal roofs have become commonplace. The roofs’ protective coatings are applied directly to the metal coils during manufacturing, from which the roof panels are formed. However, when these roofs begin to show signs of deterioration, the entire roof needs to be stripped, primed and recoated. All-Tech Decorating Company (ATD) and PPG’s Coraflon ADS with Lumiflon FEVE Resin gives school roofs factory-like fluoropolymer finishes with higher durability, gloss rate, gloss retention, weatherability and corrosion resistance than the former factory applied finishes for perfect roof restoration.

Factory applied coatings on metal roofs tend to degrade much sooner than the anticipated building’s lifespan. Since factory finishes are baked on, the only viable method of roof restoration is field application. Deteriorated roof coatings must be stripped, cleaned and sprayed on site; a job for which dedicated contractors are required. The inclusion of Lumiflon FEVE resins in coatings, such as PPG’s Coraflon ADS (air-dry system), help provide a coating with low-maintenance properties.

FEVE resins are a unique class of fluorinated resins used in the formulation of various organic coatings. FEVE resins have been studied in 2K coatings for various applications. In an effort to respond to the coatings industry’s need for more environmentally friendly alternatives, two types of waterborne FEVE resins were developed. In this study three coatings based on FEVE resins, two waterborne and one solventborne, were tested for performance properties …Read More
