Presented by Kristen Blankenship, LUMIFLON


In this one hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE 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 advantages of FEVE coating systems despite their higher initial cost compared to other coatings.

Learning Objectives:
-Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating composition, history and unique properties
-Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE that demonstrate their proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, color/gloss retention, and long life
-Discuss guidelines for proper specification, ease of application and low maintenance needs of FEVE bridge
-Quantify cost and benefits of FEVE for bridges
