Upcoming Webinar: Architectural Metal Coatings: What is in a Coating Specification?

Liquid and powder coatings each have particular characteristics, and a variety of nomenclature is used to achieve similar results—for example: high-performance coating of the aluminum components of a building. The architectural coatings industry has spent the last several years developing innovations in performance, durability and finish alternatives with these products. This seminar will update the design and construction community on the latest technologies to achieve AAMA compliance, improve finishes options, define nomenclature and discuss other topics that will help to correctly specify coatings.

School Structure Boasts Iridescent Color-Changing Facade With Lumiflon Fluoropolymer Topcoat

Paderborn, a Western German city, was given its name from the Pader river that runs through it. The historic city has two large Secondary Schools, Pelizaeus and Reismann. In a development of the school’s campus, an Alucobond-clad canteen was created, designed by Matern Wäschle Architekten. The structure, which is oval-shaped, serves as a public access point for the historic city center and popular residential 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
