Learning Objectives:

  1. Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating technology, history and unique weatherability properties as well as its ease of application and extended maintenance intervals.
  2. Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE coatings that demonstrate their proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, and color/gloss retention over long periods of time.
  3. Quantify cost and sustainability benefits of FEVE coatings regarding life-cycle and the LEED v4 rating system.
  4. Discuss guidelines for proper specification and explore several real-world applications.


1 GBCI CE Hour

In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for curtain walls, as well as maintenance re-coating of existing finishes. 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 also assess the life-cycle cost advantage and sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Kristen Blankenship, Business Development Manager, AGC Chemicals – Lumiflon, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Evansville. She has spent the last 19 years in the coatings industry working for various coating, chemical and material manufacturing companies. She began her career as an analytical chemist at Red Spot Paint (Evansville, Ind.) focusing on defect analysis. This experience allowed her to develop a unique approach to formulation with a focus on structure-property relationships. She eventually became a UV curable coatings formulator at Red Spot and later moved up chain to Cytec Industries Inc. (now Alnex) as a technical service chemist in the area of waterborne liquid coating resins. In January of 2013, she accepted the position of technical service chemist at AGC Chemicals Americas, based in Exton, Pa. After nearly three years working with LUMIFLON resins in the lab, she moved into a business development role. She now supports strategic accounts in developing high-performance coating technology based on LUMIFLON FEVE resins.


LUMIFLON LUMIFLON is one of many quality products made by AGC – Asahi Glass Company – established in Japan in 1907. In just over a century, AGC has gone from a small glass company to a diversified, multibillion-dollar enterprise. AGC first developed its solvent-soluble fluoropolymer in 1982 — and it didn’t take long for manufacturers to discover that this resin was different. LUMIFLON resins allow coatings to be cured at room temperature. For the first time, the durability, weatherability and long-term cost-effectiveness of fluoropolymer coatings are now available for field application.
