Administrative Building Fitted With Lumiflon Coated Aluminum Curtain Wall

Originally built in the 1970’s, the monolithic Richmond City Hall in Richmond, Virginia, featured marble panels, but due to adverse climatic effects, began to crack by the 1990’s. The new City Hall combines the traditional beauty of granite with a modern painted aluminum curtain wall system that puts an emphasis on it’s “grid-like appearance.” The aluminum curtain wall panels use Akzo Nobel’s high performance Interpon D3000 coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resins; which have proven to provide gloss and ultraviolet degradation resistance in excess of 10 years.

The curtain wall of the Skokie Hospital was in need of repair after 30 plus years of exposure. Unlike the previous aluminum curtain wall restorations that have been featured on Lumiflon USA, the Skokie Hospital featured a porcelain enamel curtain wall; which is a difficult surface to re-spray. Rather than performing a costly replacement of the entire system, All-Tech Coatings was able to restore the curtain wall using PPG’s Coraflon ADS coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.

High-Performance Skyrise Features Lumiflon Coated Metal Panels

The recently completed “Tower at PNC Plaza” in Pittsburgh, PA, is considered to be “the world’s greenest office building.” With inspiration from Tesla’s line of automobiles, The Tower at PNC Plaza was designed to transform the employee experience, along with sustainable measures that reduce energy and water consumption. In order to achieve this goal, a variety of high-performance materials were used on the Tower’s exterior, which include metal panels that feature a topcoat of PPG’s Coraflon powder coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Zion’s Cooperative Mercantile Institution (ZCMI) was founded by Brigham Young in 1868. The ZCMI façade restoration was a daunting project; it required special care to the various pieces of cast iron and sheet metal cornice section. To compliment the façade’s extensive preparation, provide the best protection from ultraviolet (UV) degradation and weathering, and provide the best possible aesthetic, the ZCMI restoration was completed using an array of Tnemec high-performance coating systems, including Tnemec’s Fluoronar coatings, which include Lumiflon fluoropolymer technology.

In 2012, The Great American Tower in Cincinnati, OH won the Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS2) Award by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) for the 13-story tiara that crowns the skyscraper. HOK Architects of St. Louis, MO, designed the tiara, which uses over 400 tons of arching structural steel and hollow sections in varied widths. For extreme durability and gloss retention, the Great American Tower tiara was coated using Tnemec Company’s 3 stage coating system with a topcoat of their Series 1072 Fluoronar fluoropolymer coating with Lumiflon FEVE resins.
