In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats. We will evaluate coating performance tests including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will explore the many design possibilities that FEVE technology provides and assess the sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial coast compared to other topcoat formulations.
For the past 19 years, Kristen Blankenship has worked in the coatings industry, sharing her skills and knowledge for a variety of different coating, chemical, and material manufacturing companies. Blankenship received her start focusing on defect analysis at Red Spot Paint in Evansville, TN. There, she became a UV curable coatings formulator and was able to move upwards, eventually winding up at Cytec Industries, Inc. (now Alenex) as a technical service chemist, specializing in waterborne liquid coating resins. Her unique approach to formulation with a focus on structure-property relationships can be attributed to all the experience Blankenship has amassed over nearly 2 decades. In January 2013, Blankenship accepted the position of technical service at AGC Chemicals Americas of Exton, PA. After spending three years working with LUMIFLON resins in the lab, she moved into a business development role. Today, Blankenship supports strategic accounts in developing high performance coating technology based on LUMIFLON FEVE resins. Kristen Blankenship holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Evansville.
