LUMIFLON fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) resins from AGC Chemicals Americas (Exton, PA) help aerospace manufacturers create durable coatings for aircraft in a range of colors and glosses that can reduce lifecycle costs, according to the company. Addition features include:  

  • The ability to protect military and commercial aircraft from degradation by UV light, wind, rain, chemicals and corrosion.
  • A lifespan of up to five times that of acrylic urethanes, according to the company.
  • Reduced maintenance costs by up to 50% over the life of the plane — reduced the loss of revenue during scheduled repainting, as well.
  • No repainting for at >8 years, maintaining appearance and a durable surface that allows for cleaning.
  • The ability to formulate coatings from matte finishes to high gloss.
  • Clear resins, which makes them compatible with a range of pigments and colors.
  • Availability in high solids solvent grades and also in solid resins for the production of low-VOC and HAPS-free coatings.
  • The ability to be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures.
  • No heat curing, so topcoats can be applied in the factory or in the field.
