Extending Infrastructure Life Using FEVE Bridge Coatings

Originally Aired June 25, 2019

Webinar Description:

In this one hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for both new bridges and maintenance re-coating of existing bridges. We will review the decades-long history of real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE fluoropolymer coatings in Japan due to their extensive use on bridge infrastructure. We will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage of FEVE topcoat despite its higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:

  • Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating makeup, history and unique weatherability properties
  • Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE coatings that demonstrate its proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, color/gloss retention, and long life-cycle
  • Discuss guidelines for proper specification, ease of application and low maintenance needs of FEVE bridge coatings
  • Quantify cost and sustainability benefits of FEVE coatings for bridges in regard to long life-cycle

Company Profile

LUMIFLON® FEVE powder resins from AGC, 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. Currently, solvent- and water-based, 100% solids, and powder FEVE resins are available for use in architectural coatings. A key application for FEVE is the coating of aluminum composite panels used in high-end architectural buildings.
