Differentiated Performance and Long-Life Architectural Coatings

Differentiated Performance and Long-Life Architectural Coatings

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 highperformance weatherable coatings and looks at how these coatings contribute to sustainable design

Learning Objectives: 
  1. 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
  2. Discuss why some coatings fail and the important considerations when selecting a coating system for an application, including weathering performance, longevity, and application method
  3. Discuss the standards of performance for architectural coatings and recognize why PVDF coating technology outperforms other coating technologies
  4. Explain how water-based PVDF coatings, by their chemistry and performance, can help design professionals and building owners achieve their sustainability goals.
