WHAT IS FEVE TECHNOLOGY
A cutting-edge resin-based paint technology which originated in Japan in the 1980s, Fluoroethylene Vinyl Ether (FEVE) paints are now used worldwide as a more durable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional architectural coatings.
THE PROBLEM WITH EXISTING SOLUTIONS
Traditional topcoats being more aesthetic than protective in function are more prone to colour loss and degradation from UV exposure. FEVE topcoats on the other hand act as a dual aesthetic and protective layer - bringing down maintenance and repainting requirements and in turn the overall costs and ecological footprint of your project.
THE CHEMISTRY BEHIND
The special molecular structure of fluoropolymers gives FEVE coatings high integral strength and the ability to withstand the energy of UV rays and corrosion initiators.
TESTING & VALIDATION
Worldwide site-based and laboratory-based comparative tests of FEVE and Polyurethane topcoats reveal FEVE paints show longer term UV resistance and a much higher colour retention of up to 58% compared to traditional topcoats.
When considering the cumulative costs of a maintenance project, upgrading the topcoat to a Fuoropolymer coating can prolong the life cycle of the project from 25 to 60 years - bringing about a reduction in life cycle costs by about 58%.
