Coating systems specially formulated for general purpose, high traffic, chemical and outdoor work environments
Paint manufacturer PPG today announced the launch of a comprehensive line of floor coating systems. The new range include prime coats, base coats and topcoats. The range is tailored to provide optimum performance in different environments.
A choice of four flooring coating systems are available. These include :
- General Purpose,
- Wear Resistant,
- Chemical Resistant
- Urethane Cement
- Plus additional custom options on request
Contractors and facility managers want to be confident that they are using a flooring product that will deliver optimum protection for their operating environment, said Juanjo Ardid, PPG vice president.
PPG Flooring coating systems include products that are specifically engineered to work together and deliver benefits such as resistance to impact, abrasion and certain chemicals. Our goal with this new, expansive line was to make specification quicker and easier for flooring customers. said the PPG vice president.
All PPG flooring coating systems are designed for durability, ease of installation and low volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
They are also optimized for specific end-use requirements, including:
PPG’s two-coat system, a concrete epoxy primer and self-leveling epoxy basecoat, is the most economical of the new offerings. It is easy to apply and provides moderate chemical and abrasion resistance.
In high-traffic areas where added durability and impact resistance is required, PPG offers a wear-resistant urethane topcoat. This is in addition to its general-purpose system of primer and basecoat.
An epoxy siloxane gloss or satin topcoat added to the general-purpose system provides a tight film barrier against a variety of oils, acids and chemicals.
Urethane Cement Flooring
PPG’s self-leveling urethane cement systems provide higher build levels versus traditional epoxy flooring systems for the most impact and chemical resistance. This includes occasional thermal shocks that range from minus 4°C to 100°C.
In challenging environments such as significant moisture issues or quick return-to-service requirements, primer and polyaspartic coatings are available. These provide moisture reduction and work seamlessly with other PPG Flooring coating systems. For added colour and to hide concrete imperfections, there are a variety of decorative flake options available.
When combined with the specialized support that PPG’s technical sales team can offer through our stores and dealers, we’re confident that PPG Flooring coatings can meet the performance needs of almost any customer, said Ardid.
