About This Program

Building owners have come to rely on weatherable coatings to provide long-term protection to their buildings. With an increased focus on sustainability, performance, and durability, PVDF resin-based coatings can help architects and painting contractors exceed their clients’ design goals. This course covers the key components and functions of high-performance weatherable coatings and looks at how these coatings contribute to sustainable design.

Session Takeaways

  • The session will describe the ways PVDF resin-based coatings, both water based and solvent based, provide a consistent, pristine appearance while achieving durability goals over a variety of substrates as demonstrated in applicable case studies.
  • The session will discuss why some coatings fail and the important considerations when selecting a coating system for an application, including weathering performance, longevity, and application method.
  • Discuss the standards of performance for architectural coatings and recognize why PVDF coating technology outperforms other coating technologies
  • Explain how water-based PVDF coatings, by their chemistry and performance, can help design professionals and building owners achieve their sustainability goals.
