Know Your Coatings: Coatings for Construction Applications
Live webinar airing on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 1 PM EST
Sponsored by LUMIFLON
Presented by Kristen Blankenship

Learning Objectives:
Define and discuss FEVE coating technology, history and unique weatherability properties as well as its ease of application and extended maintenance intervals.
Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of coatings that demonstrate their proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, and color/ over long periods of time.
Quantify cost and benefits of coatings regarding life-cycle and the v4 rating system.
Discuss guidelines for proper specification and explore several real-world applications.


In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of fluoropolymer topcoats for curtain walls, as well as maintenance re-coating of existing finishes. 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 also assess the life-cycle cost advantage and benefits of topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.
