The Quest For 100-Year Bridge Coatings In Japan

LUMIFLON FEVE Resin, Kiyosu Bridge
Coatings for steel bridges are used to prevent corrosion and subsequent degradation of structural properties. Since the use of zinc rich primers in the 1970’s, it has been a challenge to match the longetivity of the primers with existing and developing topcoats until the early 1980’s with the introduction of Fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE). FEVE resin, a fluoropolymer resin for coatin...
