Highway Engineer Shares His Experience With FEVE Coatings System On Highly Corroded Bridge

West Sussex Bridlebridge Recoat, Michael Taylor, Principal Highway Engineer, FEVE Resin
Taylor describes, “As the designer of the scheme and the Principal Engineer responsible for the maintenance and inspection of West Sussex County Council’s structures stock (circa 880) I am well versed in asset management principles and therefore recognized the importance of selecting a paint system that could offer both durability and value for our customers. In addition to this, I was mindful of minimizing carbon footprint in line with WSCC’s long term priorities/commitments.”

FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats are a fluorinated polyurethane-type system. This allows the system to contain not only the advantages of the polyurethane bond such as flexibility and strength, but also allowing for longevity and the ability to withstand environmental deterrents such as UV degradation for years and possibly decades, as seen with the fluorinated portion of the system. But, the fluorinated portion of the system allows for the longevity and the ability to withstand environmental deterrents such as UV degradation for years and possibly decades.

Upcoming Webinar: Extending Infrastructure Life Using FEVE Bridge Coatings

Bridges, Design, Oklahoma City, BHAMArchitect, Industrial Coatings, Tnemec
In this one hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for both new bridges and maintenance re-coating of existing bridges. We 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. We will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage of FEVE topcoat despite its higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.
