FEVE Technology - LUMIFLON® Resins for Coatings

    FEVE Technology - LUMIFLON® Resins for Coatings



    Protective coatings fight deterioration caused by environmental elements, while also reducing maintenance costs and increasing the life of the finish. The formulator will explore the chemistry of fluoropolymer resins and how they can be used to formulate high performance coatings. Through this one hour course, we will also learn how next-generation fluoropolymer coating technology based on FEVE chemistry exhibits excellent weatherability and environmental advantages.  This course will conclude with a brief Q&A.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the chemistry of FEVE fluoropolymer resins and how they can be used to formulate a variety of coatings.
    • Discuss the performance advantages of fluoropolymer coatings in regards to weatherability, chemical resistance, and corrosion resistance.
    • Discuss the versatility and flexibility of FEVE coatings in terms of application and design.
    • Discuss sustainability benefits of FEVE coatings with regard to life cycle costs.

    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.
