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.

FEVE Resins Among the Top Coatings in AAMA Exposure Tests

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) is a recognized leader in the fenestration industry through product certifications and standards development. A series of AAMA tests have been conducted using organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels, resulting in 3 standards by which coatings can be attributed: AAMA2603, AAMA 2604 or AAMA 2605. FEVE resins have been proven to exceed AAMA 2605 standards, which are an excellent choice for coatings for projects that demand high performance materials.

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...
