The proven ability of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats to reduce the opportunity for corrosion to take hold on bridge surfaces is powerful; corrosion prevention is the key to fluoropolymer’s success as a coating. Even after decades of exposure to weathering and corrosive factors, FEVE fluoropolymer coatings low permeability to oxygen, water and chloride is unchanged. Additionally, fluoropolymer coatings lose little coating thickness over time, giving them the power to effectively block corrosion initiators for 50 years or more. The result: significant life cycle cost advantages; lower environmental impact; and better looking bridges.
