FRSA Building Update Lisa Pate, FRSA Executive Director We’re on the home stretch! The paint on the exterior of our building was donated by Bostik and Arkema and is a Kynar latex paint, NeverFade Façade Restoration Coatings. It’s a field-applied, water-based, low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) primer and paint that protects the building exterior for 15-plus years. The topcoat is formulated with Kynar Aquatec, a tough and industry proven PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) resin that resists thermal, chemical and ultraviolet degradation, even in Florida’s harsh sun. The painting application process required optimal conditions – no rain or heavy humidity and a good three weeks for the stucco to cure. The painting contractor hired by the builder underwent training to become certified to apply the paint. Once the crew was ready to begin painting, Michael Roberts, Bostik, Miami was onsite to oversee the process and provide additional instruction. Between the Kynar paint and the Kynar coating on the PAC-CLAD Copper Penny roof, FRSA’s building is not only beautiful, but well protected with generously donated industry products. The team from Architectural Sheet Metal, Orlando, installed the gutters and downspouts while soffit, irrigation and landscaping were completed and the full-building generator was powered up and tested. The three new brick walkways were completed; leading to the front, the Credit Union and the Training Center entrances. Bricks from FRSA’s old building were recreated and installed in the current walkways. Inside, work continued with the installation of LVT (luxury vinyl tile) flooring, base boards, carpet in the training center and custom front doors. By the time you read this article, we will have relocated to the new building. Our mailing address and phone numbers will stay the same:
