Water-based PVDF Coatings for Sustainable Design

Water-based PVDF Coatings for Sustainable Design

This course describes the basics of water-based PVDF coatings and how they help attain sustainability goals. The course begins with a brief description of the components of a weatherable coating, and describes the function of each. Because of its critical role in the weatherability and sustainability properties of water-based PVDF coatings, the chemistry of the carbon-fluoride bond is also described.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Describe the functional properties of each primary component of a weatherable coating
  2. Describe how the gloss and color fade of various kinds of weatherable coatings compare
  3. Describe the key functional differences between water-based and solvent-based fluoropolymer coatings
  4. Compare the performance of PVDF coatings to other kinds of weatherable coatings
  5. For each of these rating systems, describe the sustainability requirements that pertain to water-based PVDF coatings:
  6. 1. ENERGY STAR Roof Products Program
  7. 2. LEED requirements within multiple credit categories
  8. 3. Title 24 Cool Exterior Roofs and Ceilings
  9. Describe three specific ways that water-based PVDF coatings can contribute to sustainable buildings
