AGC Chemicals Americas is proud to sponsor a free webinar for Building Design + Construction.
This program is eligible for 1 AIA Learning Unit
This AIA course for credit will present information on FEVE resin technology for architectural protective coatings. Protective coatings fight deterioration caused by environmental elements, while also reducing maintenance costs and increasing the life of the finish. The design professional will explore different architectural coatings, specifically fluoropolymers, and their benefits. Through this one hour course, we will also learn how next-generation fluoropolymer coating technology exhibits excellent weatherability and environmental advantages. This course will conclude with a brief Q&A. The learning objectives include:
- Compare and contrast polyvinylidene fluoride (PVdF) and fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) architectural coatings in terms of application and performance.
- Knowledgably determine which FEVE coating type to apply based on field or shop application and substrate (solvent- based, solid resins, water-borne, powder).
- Discuss the low-VOC/HAPS-free attributes of FEVE coatings and the importance of meeting South Coast Air Quality (SCAQMD) standards.
- Discuss the attributes and benefits of FEVE technology when applied to a project exterior, including long-lasting protection from the elements (UV rays, wind, rain, corrosion) and reducing the use of resources and costs associated
