Cox Howlett, Bailey Woodland, Cox Architecture, Roberts Gardiner, Albany Entertainment Center, Australia, Photography Alison Paine
Cox Architecture describes the Albany Entertainment Center as a “waterside sculpture reflecting the crystalline molecular structures of the earth.” The facade is shaped with the complex geometry of a diamond, reflecting both natural light and the nearby waterway. The building provides the community an entertainment venue with performance and convention space.

COURSE: FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

Perth Arena, Cameron Chisholm Nicol, Lumiflon, FEVE Resin
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.

The Advantages Of FEVE Fluoropolymer Topcoats For Bridges

FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats are a fluorinated polyurethane-type system. This allows the system to contain not only the advantages of the polyurethane bond such as flexibility and strength, but also allowing for longevity and the ability to withstand environmental deterrents such as UV degradation for years and possibly decades, as seen with the fluorinated portion of the system. But, the fluorinated portion of the system allows for the longevity and the ability to withstand environmental deterrents such as UV degradation for years and possibly decades.
