Zero-Isocyanate Coating Hits Market


Industrial Finishes & Systems Inc. has announced the availability of the first zero isocyanate hybrid polyurethane coating for commercial and residential buildings.

The company says it has entered into a definitive exclusive national distribution agreement with Hybrid Coating Technologies (HCT) for several of HCT’s coating formulations, including TRUE Green Poly.

TRUE Green Poly serves as a substitute for conventional polyurethane and epoxies and it is manufactured without the use of toxic isocyanates.

The product is low odor and can be applied in a variety of environments, such as hospitals and schools. TRUE Green Poly is also recommended for new construction as well as rehabilitation projects with “green” considerations.

The product boasts ease of application, durability and competitive costs, the company adds.

Recent Award

HCT’s Green Polyurethane development was the recipient of the 2015 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in cooperation with the American Chemical Society. The award program, supported by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, recognizes “landmark green chemistry technologies developed by industrial pioneers and leading scientists in the field of green chemistry.”

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to bring this much-needed product to market,” according to Industrial Finishes & Systems Chairman and CEO, Stuart Barr. “This is truly a game-changer.”
