Illinois Water Tank Aesthetics Enhanced With High Performance Hydroflon Fluoropolymer System

Illinois American Water constructed a new composite elevated water tank in 2016. According to Tnemec Company, the tank provides, “…pressure reliability during power fluctuations at three water treatment plants and supplements five other storage tanks and four booster stations on the distribution system. It was also built to provide potable water to customers in the Champaign service area.” Continue reading Read More

Upcoming Webinar: Know Your Coatings: FEVE Coatings for Construction Applications

In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for curtain walls, as well as maintenance re-coating of existing finishes. We will evaluate coating performance tests including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage and sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations. Continue reading Read More

University At Albany Standpipe Features Advanced Fluoropolymer Coating System

In the late 1960s a 251-foot architectural landmark was built at the University at Albany in New York. The 320,000-gallon standpipe water tank was in desperate need of renovation after seeing massive corrosion. The engineers at Delta and Field Applicator, TDA Construction, worked closely with Tnemec Company to replace the structure’s lead-based exterior paint and interior lining with an advanced fluoropolymer coating system. Continue reading Read More
