According to the company, the AquArmor WBU Water-Based Urethane Floor Coatings represent the next gener- ation of aliphatic coatings. e coatings, which work on both floors and walls, deliver high-performance application and aesthetic characteristics that rival solvent-based products — with the added benefit of lower volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than solvent-based formulations. e coatings' wet edge application properties help to minimize the potential for roller lap marks, ensur- ing a consistent gloss and satin sheen for the line's two available finishes. After curing, the coatings prevent tires from leaving excessive, permanent stains. For more information, contact: Sherwin-Williams, (800) 524-5979, Penetrating Primer Reduces Wait Time for 'Green' Concrete Coatings for Industr y, Inc. (CFI) introduced its WearCOAT 1080, a penetrating epox y primer designed to reduce the wait time for priming "green concrete" surfaces. Using WearCOAT 1080, contractors can apply f looring just 10 days after pouring new concrete. T his reduces the waiting period between pouring, priming, and finishing by as much as 18 days. WearCOAT 1080 is a two-component, 100 percent solids epox y primer w ith zero VOCs. T he product works by penetrating into concrete surfaces and chemically activating a powerful bond to the substrate to reduce the effects of vapor transmission, and it can w ithstand 10 lbs. (4.5 kg ) or more of moisture vapor pressure over 1,000 sq. ft. (92.9 m²) per 24 hours.

If they are not removed pr ior to paint- ing , chemica l reactions can resu lt in blister for mation and accumu- lations of r ust that destroy the ad hesion bet ween the substrate and the applied protective coating. T he patches are made using an elastomer so that the sy r inge does not pierce. T he high-ad hesion patches are latex- and chlor ide-f ree and suitable for testing on cor roded or coarse-g rade blasted steel.
