Designed by C.Y. Lee + Partners, the stepped form of Taipei 101 has become a symbol of Taiwan acknowledging both the past and the future. There are four large discs representing coins mounted on each face of the building where the pedestal meets the tower. Known for its superior protection of metal paneling and building components in monumental structures, Valspar’s Fluropon coating is the go-to choice for buildings of distinction around the world. The stately appearance of Taipei 101 is due in part to the use of Valspar’s Fluropon coating in Egg Shell White and Crystal. Fluropon is also widely selected for its high color retention due to its two-coat formulation containing 70% PVDF fluropolymer resin, plus ceramic and other inorganic pigments.
