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.
