Restoring Curtain Walls And Extrusions Using Lumiflon FEVE Resins

Erie On The Park, Extrustions, Restoration
Unlike roofing panels, curtain walls and extrusions are subjected to different amounts of weathering and deterioration. Typically, complete replacement of curtain walls and extrusions are costly, and they also interfere with the building’s operations for long periods of time. Instead, restoration of these metal substrates is a more viable option to the building owners. These projects require the careful removal of the existing coating, priming and the application of the new coating as to prevent accidental overspray on other parts of the building or surroundings. All-Tech Decorating (ATD) of Romeoville, IL chooses PPG’s Coraflon ADS coatings enriched with Lumiflon FEVE Resins for their ability to achieve factory-like finishes as well as reduce metallic flop.

Lumiflon FEVE Based Coatings Make Metal Roof Restoration Easy

Factory applied coatings on metal roofs tend to degrade much sooner than the anticipated building’s lifespan. Since factory finishes are baked on, the only viable method of roof restoration is field application. Deteriorated roof coatings must be stripped, cleaned and sprayed on site; a job for which dedicated contractors are required. The inclusion of Lumiflon FEVE resins in coatings, such as PPG’s Coraflon ADS (air-dry system), help provide a coating with low-maintenance properties.

Erie on the Park’s hallmark exposed steel beams have earned it a reputation as one of the most striking and desirable towers in Chicago. When rust appeared on its steel beams, Erie on the Park owners realized the building’s distinctive facade was endangered.

LUMIFLON FEVE Based Coatings Transform Metal Roof Corrosion

The integrity and appearance of the 8,000 s/f metal roof of the Village Harbor Office was undermined due to the roof panels’ loss of adhesion and red rust corrosion through the factory baked-on finish. The Village Harbor Association, owner of the building, needed a low-maintenance, field-applied coating system that would withstand South Carolina’s demanding climate, retain color strength and gloss, and offer a long term warranty.

LUMIFLON FEVE Resin Used to Restore Metal Roof Degradation

LUMIFLON FEVE Resin, Wolfe Residence by All-Tech Decorating Company, 5
The standing seam metal roof of the Wolfe Residence, located in Crested Butte, Colorado had suffered severe degradation resulting in the peeling of the factory finish down to the galvanized substrate. The damage occurred at an accelerated rate due to the excessive snow and ice loads experienced at the 7,000-foot elevation of the Rocky Mountains. As a result, the roof’s integrity was undermined.
