During the medieval period, complex Gothic structures were built from drawings that communicated a designer’s overall vision without detailing specific means of construction. Master craftsmen translated designs into buildable structures using simple tools available at the time.
Although silicone-modified polyester (SMP) and super-polyester coatings are well-suited for specific applications, they cannot provide the same proven long-term performance as 70 percent polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) products.
