50 Shades of Fuchsia

Seaforce-Drydock
From flat to eggshell to semi-gloss, architectural paints have made incredible gains in ultra-low VOC paint performance, but achieving a smooth, hard, glossy finish without the help of solvent has been much more elusive across the color spectrum of deep tones. In these polymer-rich paint formulations, ultra-low VOC options typically employ a soft polymer or a hard polymer with a...

Fluoropolymer Coatings for Architectural Applications

Fluoropolymer Coatings for Architectural Applications
The fluorine atom has very unique properties, particularly very high electronegativity and low polarizability. As a result, carbon–fluorine bonds have higher energy and are stronger than C–H bonds. In addition, the incorporation of fluorine substituents into organic molecules can significantly affect their properties. In small molecules, enhanced acidity and lipophilicity can result, making these fluorine-substituted compounds ideal as pharmaceuticals. The...
