Architectural Coatings: High Performance for Expansive, Sustainable Design
Live Webinar airing on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 2:00 PM EDT
Sponsored by AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc.
Presented by Kristen Blankenship, LUMIFLON


This one-hour course will discuss the strengths and advantages of 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 benefits of topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives:
-Define FEVE coating technology, history, and unique weatherability properties as well as its ease of application in the architectural market
-Discuss the importance of the form of including color, finish, and gloss range
-Discover the function of a fluoropolymer coating in terms of performance, substrates, and types
-Describe the and environmental impact of long-life
