LUMIFLON® FEVE Powder Resins Improve Coating Quality in Exterior Architectural Applications
LUMIFLON® FEVE powder resins from AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc., provide exceptional weatherability, corrosion resistance and environmental benefits when used in exterior architectural coatings applications. These resins do not require a solvent (VOC) and can be used in formulations to meet the AAMA 2605 specification for high-performance exterior architectural coatings.
“Our new powder coating developments focus on creating value by lowering cost, improving coating flexibility and surface quality, controlling coating gloss and producing new formulations to meet customers’ needs,” said Hongli Wang, Ph.D., Senior Technical Development Engineer
LUMIFLON for Corrosion-Resistant Topcoats
Topcoats formulated with LUMIFLON FEVE-based resins offer outstanding gloss and color retention and protect metal and concrete structures from corrosion. When used on buildings, bridges, aircraft, automobiles, water towers and solar panels, LUMIFLON FEVE-based topcoats do not degrade from UV light, wind, or rain and can be formulated to last 30 years or more. FEVE resins are available for almost any type of coating, including solvent-based, powder, environmentally friendly low-VOC and HAPs-free coatings, and water-based coatings. A transparent fluororesin, LUMIFLON can be used to make both clear and pigmented coatings in more than 230 colors in high-gloss to flat finishes.
LUMIFLON® FEVE Resins
lumiflonLUMIFLON® is the first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer resin for coatings that can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures. LUMIFLON
resins, used in topcoats, are ultra-weatherable, and maintain their excellent appearance on buildings, bridges, and other structures, as well as on aircraft, automobiles, and solar panels. LUMIFLON coatings protect steel, aluminum and other metals as well as concrete from degradation by UV light, wind and rain, and corrosion. A transparent fluororesin, LUMIFLON can be used to make both clear and pigmented coatings. Because of their ultra-weatherability, LUMIFLON based coatings offer substantial life cycle cost savings over conventional coatings. The resins can be formulated into coatings with a range of gloss (from high gloss to flat finishes) in more than 230 colors. LUMIFLON resins are available for almost any type of coating, including solvent based resins, powder coating resins, environmentally friendly solid resins for low VOC and HAPS free coatings, and water emulsion and water dispersion resins.
