Contextual Coatings: The Future of Metal Cladding
Live webinar airing on July 31, 2019; 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern
Sponsored by LUMIFLON
Presented by Geoff Hahn, Creative Director, Co-Founder of Pure + Freeform


Webinar Description:
This course discusses the future of exterior coatings and finishes, and explains the bespoke process of achieving a site-specific, client-specific design. Using the offset gravure printing process, unique finishes such as vintage luxury metals, abstract stone and wood can be printed on various types of metals. This manufacturing process results in high-fidelity finishes capable of various fabrication types of a metal substrate, while providing a Class A Fire-Rated, durable, easily maintained and sustainable product. For exterior applications, we will discuss the advantages of using a FEVE over PVDF coatings.

Learning Objectives:
-Describe the offset-gravure printing process and its components
-Discuss the features and design capabilities of architectural printed metal products;
-Understand the advantages of FEVE over PVDF coatings
-Identify how architectural printed metal products may contribute to the sustainability of a building
