FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats. We will evaluate coating performance tests including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will explore the many design possibilities that FEVE technology provides and assess the sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Define FEVE coating technology, history, and unique weatherability properties as well as its ease of application in the architectural market
  2. Discuss the importance of the form of coatings including color, finish, and gloss range
  3. Discover the function of a fluoropolymer coating in terms of performance, substrates, and types
  4. Identify the sustainability and environmental impact of long-life coatings
