Elementary School Roof Restoration With Flexible FEVE Fluoropolymer Coating

The Gladeville Elementary School in Galax, VA is another example of a school building that uses a standing seam metal roof system. Many building owners look to these roof systems because of their durability, versatility and longevity, however, the baked-on finishes are usually the first component of standing seam metal roofs to fail. Instead of a cost-intensive replacement, many building owners seek a professional recoating. In the case of the Gladeville Elementary School, All-Tech Coatings contractors were able to achieve a factory-like finish using PPG’s Coraflon ADS coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resin – which has been proven to outperform similar coatings systems.

Standing Seam Roof Receives Long Lasting Restoration With FEVE Coating

While standing seam metal roofs provide longer lasting, more durable solutions than other roofing substrates, their baked on Kynar finishes can fail prematurely. When the roof of this bank in Mathews, Louisiana began showing signs of wear, down to the galvanization, as well as red rust corrosion, it became apparent that a restoration was needed. All-Tech Coatings was chosen for the job, and they were able to provide a factory-like finish using PPG’s Coraflon ADS powder coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resin.

Administrative Building Fitted With Lumiflon Coated Aluminum Curtain Wall

Originally built in the 1970’s, the monolithic Richmond City Hall in Richmond, Virginia, featured marble panels, but due to adverse climatic effects, began to crack by the 1990’s.

Structural Steel Tiara Dazzles Atop Skyscraper With Lumiflon Coating

In 2012, The Great American Tower in Cincinnati, OH won the Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS2) Award by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) for the 13-story tiara that crowns the skyscraper. HOK Architects of St. Louis, MO, designed the tiara, which uses over 400 tons of arching structural steel and hollow sections in varied widths. For extreme durability and gloss retention, the Great American Tower tiara was coated using Tnemec Company’s 3 stage coating system with a topcoat of their Series 1072 Fluoronar fluoropolymer coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.
