Unlike PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) coatings, FEVE resins (fluoropolymer based) have a higher gloss and color range. It is the broader range of gloss that allows for FEVE coatings to produce a brighter color palette and retention than its PVDF opposition.

Due to its ability to be cured at ambient temperatures, FEVE based coatings allow fabricators the flexibility of a shop or field application. Fluoropolymer coatings also have low permeability to oxygen, water and chloride, offering high degradation resistance when exposed to environmental conditions and airborne pollutants. FEVE resins are easily repairable and are often used to restore PVDF projects that have deteriorated over time.

Used on hundreds of thousands of architectural projects, FEVE resins offer architects a low maintenance alternative to traditional coatings. In particular, these resins are used on building exteriors due to their ability to be applied to a wide range of architectural materials including panels, roofs, doors, canopies, windows, handrails, fences, poles, signs, aluminum, steel, concrete, glass and plastic substrates.

It’s the versatility, weatherability, sustainability, and aesthetically pleasing qualities that allow FEVE based resins to out perform the competition.

    It is really interesting how these types of resins have a higher gloss and color range. Having a higher gloss and color range to me would be fairly important so that it isn’t all just one color. I like to have a variety of colors and like it to stand out.
