Low-VOC moisture-cure urethane technology provides four-hour return to service
Sherwin-Williams introduced Cor-Cote HB Urethane, offering a rapid return to service for the assets of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities, including clarifiers, settling tanks, wet wells and grit chambers. It can be applied on both concrete and steel substrates.
“Compared to the traditional seven-day return to service of conventional epoxy technology, this high-build product will be welcomed by owners of wastewater treatment assets,” said Brad Rossetto, vice president, marketing, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. “Resuming immersion service within four hours of application is well within the capabilities of Cor-Cote HB Urethane.”
The low-VOC (less than 250 g/L) product is formulated to resist H2S gas permeation and microbiologically-influenced corrosion. Reinforced with micaceous iron oxide, Cor-Cote HB Urethane also delivers high abrasion resistance, increased film integrity and superior edge retention qualities, the company said.
With a low temperature cure at 20ºF and application in conditions up to 85% relative humidity, coating contractors will have more painting days available with Cor-Cote HB Urethane, Rossetto said.
