FEVE fluorinated resins have been used in the coatings market for over 30 years. Their excellent weatherability has given them a place in exterior coatings when the requirement is long term durability.
However, the original FEVE resin technology could not create formulations that met VOC regulations, so FEVE water-based emulsions were brought to the market. These emulsions, besides exhibiting great weatherability properties, have been found to improve additional properties such as water resistance, which can help increase resistance to mildew and dirt pick-up.
In addition to this lab work, testing has been done with blending solvent-based FEVE resins with lower molecular weight polyols to reduce VOC levels and improve specific properties.
This webinar will present the results of these new formulations and the subsequent lab work.

Disposable Medical Products and the HAI Challenge
May 22, 2014 10:30 am EST (US)/15:30 GMT
Expert consensus points to the presence of dangerous pathogens in the hospital environment as a major cause of hospital acquired infection. Most deaths related to antibiotic resistance happen in healthcare settings such as hospitals and nursing homes. As these institutions become superbug seedbeds only persistent and dedicated hospital hygiene can save them from significant liability. This depends on the timely spread of disposable hygiene and hygienically optimized products at the point of attack.

FEVE hybrid fluoropolymer resin technology has been available in the marketplace for 30 years. It has served in a multitude of coatings markets – predominantly exterior steel structures, aluminum building components, and aerospace applications. Performance attributes include superior weatherability, improved chemical resistance, and the ability to create fluorinated finishes which possess a high gloss. A distinct advantage of FEVE-based coatings is their ability to be field-applied at ambient temperatures. In addition, current VOC regulations in the USA can be attained with these coatings. All of these properties make an FEVE resin-based coating a promising candidate for the improvement of durability in many coating markets.

A method to tint coatings is through the addition of colorants, which are pigment dispersions with well defined coloristic and rheological properties. Currently, colorant is not counted as part of the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) calculation for point-of-sale (POS), though it is considered for in-plant applications. However, proposed changes in legislation are to include the VOC contribution of colorant at POS. Therefore, the selection of raw materials is an important criterion, to the paint formulator, in terms of the VOC contribution that the colorants have on the coating. To meet these needs Chroma-Chem® 897 colorants were developed.
Chroma-Chem® 897 is a No-VOC line of aqueous industrial colorants for in-plant, depot, and POS tinting of high performance industrial coatings such as acrylics, epoxies, and polyurethanes. One of the main features that make Chroma-Chem® 897 unique is that it has no impact on paint properties. Pigments that provide broad color space, good durability, lightfastness and chemical resistance were selected. Also, Chroma-Chem® 897 has improved dispensability and in-can stability. This Webinar will discuss the impact of No-VOC colorants in waterborne industrial coatings. The focus will be on how these colorants provide the formulator with options to meet ever increasing demands for higher durability, increased opacity, and the impact on coloristic, rheological, and physical properties. Also, test methods and procedures related to these results will be discussed.

Modern Formulations for Exterior Archetectural Paints.
This webinar will introduce Dow Corning® 87 Additive and Dow Corning® 88 Additive in the architectural market. Both additives improve water repellency and provide improved water beading in decorative coatings, while Dow Corning® 88 Additive is a silane/siloxane blend that also imparts improved water repellency and prevents water absorption. Both additives create a hydrophobic silicone network in the paint that repels water but is permeable to water vapor coming from the substrate, leading to improved water repellency without cracking and blistering. These novel products are designed to provide sustainable solutions to a challenging problem in this market. Unlike other silicone-based materials, these new technologies are effective at low use levels. Register for this webinar to hear a Dow Corning expert elaborate more on this technology.
