The extravagent Excalibur Hotel and Casino sits along the Las Vegas Strip. The medieval-themed casino was originally completed in 1990, where it started a rapidly growing trend of luxurious buildings that popped up along the Strip. The original plan for Excalibur Casino was for the castle’s turrets to be recoated every three to four years; however, the long-term costs of maintaining Excalibur’s exterior coatings would grow astronomically. To avoid this, Tnemec's Fluoronar with Lumiflon FEVE resin was chosen to coat the turrets in a 2000 renovation.

This ballet is a haunting vision of red; its glaring vermillion limbs curved upward around each other, unmoving. The Ghost Ballet dances in the Nashville skyline, its audience the visitors who are curious enough to take a step closer. Completed in 2007, Ghost Ballet was the first project that was funded by the City of Nashville’s public art ordinance, which is administered by the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission (MNAC.) In 2014, Ghost Ballet was due for a recoating, as the artwork’s characteristic fire engine red coating was beginning to fade. To ensure that the new coatings stay intact, the red, maroon, and gray parts of the sculpture were given a topcoat of Tnemec’s Series 1070 Fluoronar. The high-performance fluoropolymer contains LUMIFLON FEVE resin technology that offers the long-term color and gloss retention necessary for a high-profile project like Ghost Ballet.

Constructed in 1967, the signature bright red forum was once the premier music and sports arena in Inglewood, California. In its heyday, The Forum was the home for the Los-Angeles Lakers basketball team, the Los Angeles Kings National Hockey League team and host to many major musical acts. During the 1980s, the naming rights were sold and the building’s exterior metal panels were painted blue. However, by the late 2000s, the blue panels had greatly deteriorated. Using a high-performance coating system from Tnemec, which includes a fluoropolymer coating with Lumiflon FEVE resin, The Forum was revitalized to its former glory in its signature “Forum Red.”

LEED Platinum San Diego Airport Uses Exterior Steel With FEVE Coating

In a move towards sustainability, the San Diego International Airport sought to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum terminal design. Not only does the airport terminal utilize alternative energy sources and green building materials, it also features high performance, low volatile organic compound (VOC) coating systems from Tnemec. All exterior exposed steel, including canopies and two sky bridges, used Tnemec’s Series 1071V Fluoronar coating with Lumiflon FEVE fluoropolymer resins for long lasting protection against ultraviolet (UV) light, along with high gloss and color retention.
