Lumiflon FEVE resins at the 2015 Waterborne Symposium in New Orleans

Fluorinated resins are known for high performance, particularly in long term, exterior durability. Fluoroethylene vinyl ether or FEVE resins, a family of fluorinated resins, have a unique alternating copolymer structure allowing them to be dissolved in solvent as well as emulsified in water for formulating liquid coatings. As environmental initiatives are becoming less compulsory and industry is taking proactive measures to protect the environment, waterborne and high solids paint is ever increasing in demand.

Upcoming Talk: Environmentally Friendly Fluoropolymer Resins for Coatings

LUMIFLON (Fluoroethylene vinyl ether or FEVE) fluoropolymer resins were developed over 30 years ago. These resins are used to make ultra-weatherable fluorourethane coatings for architectural, industrial, automotive, aerospace, and alternative energy markets. In some cases, topcoats made with these resins have expected lifetimes exceeding 60 years. These coatings are especially useful in areas where high levels of UV exposure are present, including desert areas and countries close to the equator. Continue reading Read More

Upcoming Talk: Fluorinated Polyols for Ultra-Weatherable Coatings

FEVE resins are a unique class of fluorinated resins used in the formulation of various organic coatings.  FEVE resins have been studied in 2K coatings for various applications.  In an effort to respond to the coatings industry’s need for more environmentally friendly alternatives, two types of waterborne FEVE resins were developed.  In this study three coatings based on FEVE resins, two waterborne and one solventborne, were tested for performance properties …Read More
