One-Step Topcoat Aims for Ease, Savings

WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 2013


International Paint has introduced an acrylic polysiloxane topcoat for commercial applications that aims to provide longterm gloss and color protection in an environmentally friendly formula.

Interfine 1080 is a low-VOC finish coat in a single-pack formulation for commercial and industrial applications.

The coating was developed to provide a high-quality aesthetic and a simpler alternative to traditional two-pack polysiloxane and polyurethane topcoats, according to the company.

"With a single-pack product, the complexity of mixing Part A with Part B is removed, thereby reducing the possibility of error," said Dave Maurer, Protective Coatings Senior Product Marketing Manager, North America.

Maurer says the formulation saves time and money and is easy to use.

Interfine 1080 does not contain isocyanates and can be applied by brush, roller or spray to structural steel, railings and other structures.

The product resists dirt and yellowing and is available in a variety of colors using the Chromascan remote tinting system.
