Architectural Protective Coatings: FEVE Technology

Architectural Protective Coatings: FEVE Technology

to take this course

Explore different architectural coatings, specifically fluoropolymers, and their benefits. Learn how next-generation, fluoropolymer coating technology exhibits excellent weatherability, lowers maintenance costs, and is environmentally friendly.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Compare and contrast polyvinylidene fluoride (PVdF) and fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) architectural coatings in terms of application and performance
  2. Knowledgably determine which FEVE coating type to apply based on field or shop application and substrate (solvent-based, solid resins, water-borne, powder)
  3. Discuss the low-VOC/HAPS-free attributes of FEVE coatings and the importance of meeting South Coast Air Quality (SCAQMD) standards
  4. Discuss the attributes and benefits of FEVE technology when applied to a project exterior, including long-lasting protection from the elements (UV rays, wind, rain, corrosion) and reducing the use of resources and costs associated with maintenance/repair
