The new systems have a temperature resistance of up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, good bond strength and abrasion resistance, fast cure rate and reduced shrinkage, the company says.

The company indciates the new products include Flowchem VE RC, a horizontal and vertical roller-applied vinyl ester coating installed at 40 mils; and Flowchem VE BC, installed at 60, 75 or 125 mils with graded aggregates between two layers of vinyl ester resin to provide traction, strength and impact resistance; and Flowchem VE GL, a glass fiber reinforced horizontal and vertical applied system installed at 125 mils.
