Extending Infrastructure Life Using FEVE Bridge
Live airing on June 25, 2pm ET/1pm CT
Sponsored by LUMIFLON
Presented by Kristen Blankenship

Webinar Description:
In this one hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for both new bridges and maintenance re-coating of existing bridges. We will review the decades-long history of real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE fluoropolymer in Japan due to their extensive use on bridge infrastructure. We will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage of FEVE topcoat despite its higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:
-Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating makeup, history and unique weatherability properties
-Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE that demonstrate its proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, color/gloss retention, and long life-cycle
-Discuss guidelines for proper specification, ease of application and low maintenance needs of FEVE bridge
Quantify cost and sustainability benefits of FEVE for bridges in regard to long life-cycle

This webinar offers one Professional Development Hour (PDH)*
