Coating Designed for Metal, Concrete

THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2017


Polyset (Mechanicville, New York) has launched a new polyaspartic system designed for concrete and metal surfaces.

The manufacturer recommends the product for use on concrete floors, tanks, bridges, railcars, pipelines and other steel structures.

Ply-Guard AS is a two-component aliphatic polyurea system that Polyset says has a fast cure time (40 minutes at 77 degrees Fahrenheit) and is characterized by high color and gloss retention and resistance to abrasion, impact and wear.

The product is recommended for application at 2-8 mils dry film thickness, and has a pot life of approximately 40 minutes at 77 degrees Fahrenheit. It has a shelf life of one year in the original container, unopened.

Application Details

For flooring applications, such as commercial or industrial flooring, loading areas or pool or patios surfaces, the coating can be applied in a three-coat system, with decorative flake chips incorporated into the second coat. Micro media chips can be incorporated for slip resistance.

The coating is available in all standard colors, and in high gloss or clear-high gloss.

Polyset says when used as a direct-to-metal coating, Ply-Guard AS passed 2,000 hours of testing in a salt-fog corrosion chamber, per ASTM B117. As a topcoat over a Polyset WB HRZS primer on steel, it passed 13,000 hours of the same testing, the company adds.

In addition to corrosion resistance, the company says the system exhibits high chemical- and UV-resistance.
