Protective Line Offers 3 Systems

WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 2014


Sherwin-Williams’ Protective and Marine Coatings has launched three polyaspartic urethanes, each suited for a different shop or field coating challenge.

The EnviroLastic protective coating line includes 840 DTM, 940 DTM and 980 PA.

3 Systems, Multiple Uses

The company says 840 DTM is a thin-film, direct-to-metal shop coating that dries to the touch in 20 minutes. This system offers does not pick up grit, tolerates exposure to dew and precipitation, and gives a high-gloss finish, according to Sherwin-Williams.

Uses include high throughput shop applications such as frac tanks, production equipment, structural steel, rail cars and sign structures.

For a high-build, direct-to-metal coating, Sherwin-Williams suggests 940 DTM. The coating is early moisture-tolerant, retains gloss and color, and "delivers epoxy-polyurethane performance in just one coat," according to the company. It can be applied in temperatures as low as 35°F.

Uses include bridge projects, production tanks, steel fabrication, other structural steel, commercial and architectural applications.

The company says 840 DTM (shown here) is a thin-film, direct-to-metal shop coating that dries to the touch in 20 minutes.

According to the company, 980 PA is a high-build finish coat that, when applied over a zinc-rich primer, can reach performance requirements without an intermediate coat. The coating dries to the touch in 30 minutes without grit and dust pickup, can be put into service in two days, and has an extended three-month recoat window, the company says.

Uses include large maintenance projects, bridges, stadiums and other high-visibility structures, as well as plant, refinery and offshore equipment and piping.
