A high-solids polyaspartic designed for direct-to-concrete application and primed concrete surfaces has been launched by coatings and linings provider US Coatings (St. Louis).

US Coatings says its new GripCrete 9000 PA serves the functions of a three-coat system but requires only one coat.

The company says GripCrete 9000 PA combines viscosity and adhesion promoters to provide grip to marginally prepared surfaces, such as high-traffic warehouse floors. The functions of three coatings—epoxy primer, epoxy intermediate and polyurethane topcoat—are achieved in one coat, according to the manufacturer.

Tinting, Return to Service

US Coatings notes that the 75 percent-solids GripCrete 9000 PA can be tinted in a number of colors, and tinting will not detract from its high-gloss finish, nor will it affect the coating’s ability to withstand the rigors of foot or forklift traffic. The coating has a working time of 40-45 minutes, and the surface can be returned to service in two to four hours for foot traffic, the firm says.

The company says the product, which was developed as an alternative to polyurea and traditional polyaspartic floor coatings, is VOC-compliant. It offers SSPC Level 3 Paint 36 UV resistance performance.

US Coatings says GripCrete 9000 PA has industrial applications (manufacturing, marine, conventional power plants) as well as commercial uses (warehouses, garages, churches, schools, restaurants).
