Description:
In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE 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 provides and assess the benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives:
-Define FEVE coating technology and examine the forms and finishes available to meet a host of varied application environments safely
-Discuss the characteristics of the four main types of FEVE resins and explain how they are positively contributing to a healthier environment
-Explore how the composition of FEVE promotes sustainability and improved indoor air quality efforts
-Analyze case studies to see how FEVE coatings are helping to reduce hazardous wastes while increasing the life-cycle of buildings.

Kristen has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Evansville. She has spent the last 19 years in the coatings industry working for various coating, chemical, and material manufacturing companies. She began her career as an analytical chemist at Red Spot Paint, focusing on defect analysis. This experience allowed her to develop a unique approach to formulation with a focus on structure-property relationships. She eventually became a UV curable coatings formulator at Red Spot and later moved up to Cytec Industries as a service chemist. In 2013, she became technical service chemist at AGC Chemicals Americas and after three years working in the lab, she moved into business development. She now supports strategic accounts in developing high performance coating technology based on LUMIFLON® FEVE resins.

Attendees can earn 1 AIA Learning Unit. Certificates of completion will be available.
