Lumiflon fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) resins from AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. are for industrial and architectural applications. Topcoats formulated with them are, AGC says, ultra-weatherable, offering outstanding gloss and color retention and protection from UV light, wind, rain and corrosion. They ensure a longer life on building exteriors and facades, bridges (such as the Oklamoma bridge pictured), aircraft, automobiles, water towers and solar panels, The result is less need for repainting and a substantial decrease in lifecycle costs. Lumiflon is a transparent fluororesin that can be used to make both clear and pigmented coatings in more than 230 colors in high-gloss to flat finishes. In addition, they are the first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer resins for coatings that can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures, making them suitable for both field and factory application. They are available in conventional solvent grades, as well as powder form, water-based resins and solid resins for the production of low-VOC and HAPS-free environmentally friendly coatings.
