The West Changchun Railway Station is impressive not only for its monumental form, but for its sophisticated integrated technology as well. After opening to the public, it showcased the world’s first alpine, highspeed rail line whose route travels through China’s three northeastern provinces. Greatly reducing time between major cities, the bullet trains can operate in temperatures from minus 40 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius above zero. Like the bullet trains, Fluropon, Valspar’s 70% PVDF highly durable architectural coating also can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations while supplying a dose of refined beauty. For the West Changchun Railway Station, Valspar’s Fluropon coating was applied to the exterior’s metal building components, providing long-lasting color retention and extreme weathering performance.
