FEVE Fluoropolymer Coatings for High Performance Waterbased Applications

Performance, cost, and safety drive the coatings industry. Safer and environmentally friendly coatings continue to be a hot topic of discussion globally; however, the adoption of greener coating technologies is slow, especially in the US. This could be attributed to many factors, but from the formulator's perspective, performance is key. Waterborne coatings have been used in architectural applications for decades, but typically these coatings are valued mostly for aesthetics, ease of use, and low cost.

Performance, cost, and safety drive the coatings industry. Safer and environmentally friendly coatings continue to be a hot topic of discussion globally; however, the adoption of greener coating technologies is slow, especially in the US. This could be attributed to many factors, but from the formulator's perspective, performance is key. Waterborne coatings have been used in architectural applications for decades, but typically these coatings are valued mostly for aesthetics, ease of use, and low cost. The use of waterborne coatings in industrial applications, where higher performance is required, is still uncommon. FEVE fluoropolymer resins are known in the industry as having outstanding durability in exterior industrial and architectural applications. The original FEVE fluoropolymers were synthesized in solvent, but are now available in several water based grades, both emulsion and dispersion. This paper will review the performance of several waterbased formulations based on FEVE resins including a 2K waterbased polyurethane system and a 1K system based on a blend of acrylic and FEVE emulsion. Results of long-term weatherability (QUV-A and Xenon Arc) and corrosion resistance (Prohesion) will be reviewed. A comparison of the final results to that of an FEVEbased solventborne 2K coating will also be made. And finally, an overview of the latest grade of FEVE waterbased emulsion will be discussed.
