Upcoming Talk: FEVE Resin Technology: Performance Properties Beyond Ultra-Weatherability

FEVE fluoropolymer resin technology has been available commercially for 32 years. It has been part of a multitude of coatings markets – including exterior steel structures, aluminum building components, and aerospace applications. Its biggest performance attribute is its superior weatherability, which gives it a unique place on the list of choices for long-lasting exterior coatings.

Fluorinated resins are known for high performance, particularly in long term, exterior durability. Fluoroethylene vinyl ether or FEVE resins, a family of fluorinated resins, have a unique alternating copolymer structure allowing them to be dissolved in solvent as well as emulsified in water for formulating liquid coatings. As environmental initiatives are becoming less compulsory and industry is taking proactive measures to protect the environment, waterborne and high solids paint is ever increasing in demand.

Upcoming Talk: Environmentally Friendly Fluoropolymer Resins for Coatings

LUMIFLON (Fluoroethylene vinyl ether or FEVE) fluoropolymer resins were developed over 30 years ago. These resins are used to make ultra-weatherable fluorourethane coatings for architectural, industrial, automotive, aerospace, and alternative energy markets. In some cases, topcoats made with these resins have expected lifetimes exceeding 60 years. These coatings are especially useful in areas where high levels of UV exposure are present, including desert areas and countries close to the equator.

Upcoming Talk: Fluorinated Polyols for Ultra-Weatherable Coatings

TRFA 2013 Annual Meeting Lumiflon USA Talk October
FEVE resins are a unique class of fluorinated resins used in the formulation of various organic coatings.  FEVE resins have been studied in 2K coatings for various applications.  In an effort to respond to the coatings industry’s need for more environmentally friendly alternatives, two types of waterborne FEVE resins were developed.  In this study three coatings based on FEVE resins, two wate...
