The Bailey’s Crossroads Skyline buildings in Arlington, VA were completed in the 1970s. The original black coatings used on the aluminum façade of the building had transformed to a dark brown, mud-like color that were in need of dire attention. In 2001, the building’s former owners, Charles E. Smith Co. then hired William Pegues of Weigh Design Group who contacted his representatives at PPG. They recommended Coraflon ADS with Lumiflon FEVE flouropolymer resin-based coating for its field applicability, durability and extensive color selection that match factory applied coatings.

The architectural and construction industry have been specifying and utilizing protective coatings for generations. These coatings work to prevent deterioration caused by impact and environmental factors. They are used to maintain durability and aesthetics, while greatly reducing maintenance costs by increasing the life of the finish. Without protection from ultra-violet radiation, wind, rain, and other environmental impacts, a beautifully constructed project can quickly lose its luster. These factors can result in deterioration and render aesthetics awash of their former brilliance, leading to extensive costs to repair, correct and restore.
