Coatings for Industry has introduced a high performance floor topcoat that resists yellowing over the long term, solving a problem that has long plagued conventional epoxy coatings, according to the company.

Ideal for settings subject to damaging sunlight, the new Wearcoat 481HP was formulated from inception to be both anti-yellowing and fade-resistant. This new epoxy is designed as an upgrade from Coatings for Industry's Wearcoat 440 for applications where the floor has exposure to the sun or high intensity lighting.

“Anti-fade, anti-yellow has been one of the holy grails in epoxies,” said Kevin Klotz, president of the company. “Both accelerated exposure testing in our lab and field results leave us confident this will be a game changer.”

Coatings for Industry offers several systems so contractors can meet a variety of customer needs. The new fade-resistant Wearcoat 481HP topcoat is especially effective in providing a seamless floor with good resistance to an array of hazards, even those encountered in aircraft hangars, or emergency and medical facilities. Additionally, this system is ideal for application at facilities that are in-service because it has zero VOCs and low odor. All of the decorative options including flakes, quartz and metallics available for Wearcoat 440 are also available for the new Wearcoat 481HP.
