Three Building Projects Nominated for Elevation Awards are Coated With LUMIFLON Specialty Chemicals

The second annual Elevation Awards, sponsored by Durability + Design, recognizes architects, interior designers, painting contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who participated in outstanding building projects around the world. A panel of industry professionals judge the structures and buildings based on aesthetic and technical criteria. Of the nominated buildings, three were coated with LUMIFLON® FEVE-based resins. […]

Developments in Architectural Coatings: New FEVE Resin/Polyester Blends Produce Superior Metallic Finishes

More than 10% of today’s powder coatings use metallic pigments, and color and aesthetic trends show a growing demand. However, it is still very challenging to formulate metallic powder coatings that have the durability and weatherability characteristics required for buildings and structures. That’s because traditional fluoropolymer-based coatings like PTFE and FEP require melt points for […]

4 Reasons to Beat the Elements with a Fluoropolymer Coating

When city officials decided to renovate the dated 1950s-era Las Vegas Convention Center, they knew it would be a massive project inside and out. Because bringing the historic structure into the modern age would not be easy. Once the convention center was complete, it needed to stand the test of time…literally. A job for fluoropolymer […]

Vehicle Makers Turn to Fluoropolymers Protect Auto Parts from Harsh Fuels

Using ethanol, biodiesel and other biofuels are becoming commonplace as we seek alternatives to nonrenewable oil resources and try to reduce harmful emissions. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, roughly 97% of gasoline in the U.S. contains some ethanol. The problem is that these biofuels and additives are extremely harsh on vehicle fuel systems […]

The Evolution of Fluoropolymer Coatings

It’s always been a major challenge to protect public infrastructure from nature’s elements. Take bridges, for example. According to the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, 9.1% of the U.S.’s 614,387 bridges are “structurally deficient.” This is most likely due to almost 40% of them being 50 years or older. AGC formulators continually strive to develop resin and topcoat technologies […]
