Sports complexes, schools and public buildings that take a pounding from the elements have a new coating option from Sherwin-Williams.

FluoroKem HS is a high-solids, ambient-cured, fluoropolymer urethane finish coating for structures that require extreme weather durability..

The product is recommended for interior and exterior surfaces that require both corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal and for structures subjected to severe environmental exposures.

Sherwin-Williams says the coating can help water tanks, stadiums, bridges and other structures withstand extreme weather and retain color and gloss.

Applications include stadiums, museums, schools, sport complexes, municipal buildings and fascias, according to Sherwin-Williams.

Accelerated Weather Testing

Accelerated weather testing showed that FluoroKem HS maintained nearly 100 percent gloss rentention over 13,000 hours, and testing of color retention in Florida for three years showed "virtually no color change," the manufacturer said.

The coating offers quick dry time, with a dry-to-handle and minimum recoat time of four hours at 77°F, according to the company.

"FluoroKem HS provides unparalleled color and gloss retention, chemical resistance, and adhesion to primers not seen yet in the water, wastewater and commercial industries," said Narsi Bodapati, VP of Marketing for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings.

"The long coating service life of FluoroKem HS reduces the frequency of maintenance work and subsequent downtime interruption," said Bodapati.

The coating can be applied in one coat with brush, roll or airless conventional spraying application methods, the company says.
