Cost: FREE

This webinar will cover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for both new bridges and maintenance re-coating of existing bridges. The presenter will review the decades-long history of real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE fluoropolymer coatings in Japan due to their extensive use on bridge infrastructure. The webinar will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage of FEVE topcoats despite its higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.



Learning objectives:

• Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating makeup, history and unique weatherability properties;

• Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE coatings that demonstrate its proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, color/gloss retention and long life cycle;

• Discuss guidelines for proper specification, ease of application and the low maintenance needs of FEVE bridge coatings; and

• Quantify cost and sustainability benefits of FEVE coatings for bridges in regard to a long life cycle.

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.
