Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings was awarded the Steel Tank Institute (STI) 2015 Affiliate New Product of the Year for its EnviroLastic Polyaspartic coatings at STI’s annual meeting in partnership with the Steel Plate Fabricators Association.
The foundation of the EnviroLastic Polyaspartic product line is high-throughput applications for shops. These products were also designed to provide performance, durability, and ease of workability for applicators. Specifying these new technology coatings can provide improved levels of efficiency, allowing accelerated throughput not previously imaginable and at significantly lower overall cost, as they were engineered to provide long-term performance and aesthetics.
EnviroLastic 840 DTM is a high gloss, thin film, direct-to-metal coating that is early-moisture resistant and can be applied in temperatures as low as 35°F. The short 20-minute dry-to-touch window greatly reduces grit pickup, and it finishes with a mirror-like appearance.
EnviroLastic 940 DTM is a high build, direct-to-metal coating that can also be applied at temperatures as low as 35°F. The advanced chemistry of this polyaspartic urethane produces accelerated throughput by offering one hour dry-to-touch times, while the high build property provides single-coat application with the performance of most two-coat epoxy/urethane systems.
EnviroLastic 980 PA is a premium high build finish coat designed for long-term durability. This next generation polyaspartic urethane technology provides the ability to turn around a maintenance coating application in just one shift and offers an extended recoat window of three months.
The Annual Product of the Year award is presented by STI to recognize new products, services or supplies of affiliate member companies that enhance the fabrication, versatility, and longevity of steel tanks
and pressure vessels. Sherwin-Williams has previously received this award for Dura-Plate UHS with OAP, Dura-Plate 301 and Nova-Plate 325.
