Description:
This webinar will cover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for both new bridges and maintenance re-coating of existing bridges. The presenter will review the decades-long history of real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE fluoropolymer coatings in Japan due to their extensive use on bridge infrastructure. The webinar will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage of FEVE topcoats despite its higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives:
• Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating makeup, history and unique weatherability properties;
• Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE coatings that demonstrate its proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, color/gloss retention and long life cycle;
• Discuss guidelines for proper specification, ease of application and the low maintenance needs of FEVE bridge coatings; and
• Quantify cost and sustainability benefits of FEVE coatings for bridges in regard to a long life cycle.

Coating thickness errors commonly occur when specifiers make assumptions based on data extrapolated from the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) “Fire Tests of Building Construction and Materials” specification (ANSI/UL 263; ASTM E-119). Testing conducted by fireproofing manufacturers does not necessarily include every possible steel section size, leading some fireproofing manufacturers to make the mistake of extrapolating data and sharing that noncompliant information with specifiers – which can lead to coating thickness errors and the dangerous scenarios noted above.

Tune in to this webinar to discover the dangers of extrapolating coating thickness data and how to avoid mistakes by working with qualified engineers to optimize fire protection coating specifications.
