Lumiflon FEVE resins are renowned for their flexibility to be formulated in a variety of coatings, from solvent- to water- based, as well as powder coatings. When used in powder coatings, FEVE fluoropolymer coatings meet and exceed the highest American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association (AAMA) Specifications for Paint and Architectural Powder Coatings.
For the construction of the Cirque Condos in Dallas, Texas, the building owners required long-term aesthetic and functional protection on the aluminum handrails for individual condominium balconies. Quality Powder Coating was chosen to apply IFS Coatings’ IFS 500FP powder coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resins, which meet and exceed the AAMA 2605 specification.
The handrails were coated at the Quality Powder Coating facility in Carrollton, Texas, where they received a single coat of IFS 500FP in a custom silver color and thermoset to provide a uniform and solid finish. Additionally, no primer is necessary with IFS 500FP with FEVE fluoropolymer powder coatings to achieve the AAMA 2605 specification, minimizing work needed and turnaround time.
