EXTON, Pa., February 11, 2019 – AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. will present on the latest developments in formulating corrosion-resistant coatings with fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) water-based resins at the 2019 Waterborne Symposium.
Donald Lawson, senior applications chemist, will discuss water-based 1K FEVE coatings formulations with improved corrosion resistance. Click here to read a summary of the presentation.
In addition, AGC will feature LUMIFLON FEVE resins for coatings at booth 206. AGC coatings technology experts will be on hand to discuss the chemistry, performance and applications of these high-performance FEVE resins.
LUMIFLON FEVE resins have been used in paints and coatings on building exteriors and facades for more than 30 years. Topcoats formulated with 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, 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.
The Waterborne Symposium will be held February 24 – March 1, 2019 at the Astor Crowne Plaza in New Orleans. Mr. Lawson will present on Wednesday, February 27 at 4:30 p.m. For more information about The Waterborne Symposium, click here.
