LUMIFLON® FEVE Resins were developed by Asahi Glass in 1982 as the world’s first solvent-soluble fluoropolymers. In the past 25 years, fluoropolymer coatings based on LUMIFLON® FEVE Resins have been produced by paint manufacturers around the world, and applied to over 150,000 structures. The use of LUMIFLON ® FEVE Resins offers substantial life cycle cost savings compared to conventional coating technologies. Please visit www.lumiflonusa.com.


Protective coatings fight deterioration caused by environmental elements, while also reducing maintenance costs and increasing the life of the finish. The design professional will explore different architectural coatings, specifically fluoropolymers, and their benefits. Through this webinar, attendees will also learn how next-generation fluoropolymer coating technology exhibits excellent weatherability and environmental advantages. Participants are eligible for one AIA LU|HSW credit.

Learning Objectives:

• Compare and contrast polyvinylidene fluoride (PVdF) and fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) architectural coatings in terms of application and performance.
• Knowledgably determine which FEVE coating type to apply based on field or shop application and substrate (solvent-based, solid resins, water-borne, powder).
• Discuss the low-VOC/HAPS-free attributes of FEVE coatings and the importance of meeting South Coast Air Quality (SCAQMD) standards.
• 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.

Kristen Blankenship
AGC Chemicals - Lumiflon

Kristen 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, IN) 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.
