LUMIFLON® was developed and commercialized in 1982 by Asahi Glass as the first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer for coatings that can be cured under room temperature conditions. During this 20 years period, fluoropolymer coatings based on LUMIFLON® have been produced by many coating manufactures worldwide.
LUMIFLON® based coatings maintain excellent appearances (gloss, colour) of buildings and other structures for over 20 years, and also protects steel and concrete from sunshine, wind, rain and corrosion. Therefore, LUMIFLON® based coatings reduce the total maintenance cost such as repainting or cleaning. Recently, Asahi Glass has developed environmentally friendly LUMIFLON® grades, such as emulsion and powder grades.
