New Low VOC Coatings for High-Traffic Commercial Floors

a new line of Low-VOC coatings for high-traffic commercial floorsCoatings for Industry (CFI) has added two new highly durable, near-zero VOC coatings to its WearCOAT line. The coatings – WearCOAT 2330 Gloss and WearCOAT 2345 Satin – were developed for commercial concrete floor applications where low-odor, quick return-to-service, excellent durability and aesthetics are key in areas of commercial buildings with high-volume foot and wheeled traffic, even heavy tow motors and trucks.

Typical applications for the coatings are high-traffic, high-visibility areas, including big-box retail, grocery stores, restaurants, schools, hospitals and airport terminals. They are also wellsuited to many types of plants and manufacturing facilities where heavy-duty wheeled vehicles are tough on the floor.

Because they contain nearly zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and have virtually no odor, they can be applied in public buildings, even while occupied.

WearCOAT 2330 (shown with yellow lift truck) is a two-component product that offers a gloss finish. WearCOAT 2345 offers a satin finish and is applied in three parts, including an aggregate component. Both are 95 percent solids and are applied as one coat at 3 mils.

Both products feature an average pot life of 30 minutes, and coverage of 500 square feet per gallon. Their cure time allows for a fast return to service; it’s dry to touch in four hours, and just 12 hours for foot traffic. WearCOAT 2330 is offered in 1.2- and 3.5-gallon kits. WearCOAT 2345 is sold in one- and three-gallon kits.
