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.

Bailey’s Crossroads Skyline Offices Revitalized With FEVE Resin Coatings

They recommended Coraflon ADS with Lumiflon FEVE flouropolymer resin-based coating for its field applicability, durability and extensive color selection that match factory applied coatings.

Restoring Curtain Walls And Extrusions Using Lumiflon FEVE Resins

Unlike roofing panels, curtain walls and extrusions are subjected to different amounts of weathering and deterioration. Typically, complete replacement of curtain walls and extrusions are costly, and they also interfere with the building’s operations for long periods of time. Instead, restoration of these metal substrates is a more viable option to the building owners. These projects require the careful removal of the existing coating, priming and the application of the new coating as to prevent accidental overspray on other parts of the building or surroundings. All-Tech Decorating (ATD) of Romeoville, IL chooses PPG’s Coraflon ADS coatings enriched with Lumiflon FEVE Resins for their ability to achieve factory-like finishes as well as reduce metallic flop.

Lumiflon FEVE Resins Are The Subject Of School Roof Restoration

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.
