Transit stations are historically high trafficked areas, often seeing hundreds of commuters on a daily basis. Additionally, these buildings are expensive to repair as construction can require costly closures. Often architects specify high performance coatings systems for their architectural components to ensure both the longevity and aesthetic quality of their designs.

Upcoming Webinar: FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

Chase Center, San Francisco, Gensler, Manica Architecture, Kendall Heaton Associates, LUMIFLON USA, Jason O Rear Photography
In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats. We will evaluate coating performance tests including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will explore the many design possibilities that FEVE technology provides and assess the sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.
