CFCM CFI Coatings WearCOAT 400Coatings for Industry, Inc. (CFI) offers WearCOAT 440FS, a fast-setting epoxy floor coating in a blush-resistant formula to help avoid amine blush.

A common issue with cool-temperature floor coating jobs, amine blush, is an oily surface imperfection caused by moisture or dew settling on uncured epoxy. While not fatal to the job, cleaning that blush slows projects from on-time completion.

Contractors report that WearCOAT 440FS is easy to apply evenly and consistently. Most importantly, the high-grade formula has proven superior in allowing them to take on projects through the winter months when higher humidity and cooler concrete substrates can yield this unwelcome problem.

A 100-percent solids epoxy mid-coat or top-coat, WearCOAT 440FS is formulated to cure fast in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit /4 degrees Celcius. Its fast-cure characteristics make it dry to touch in 2-3 hours and may be recoated in as little as 4 hours which helps it resist amine blush.

Contractors can count on this blush-resistant formula for flooring projects that are partially or wholly exposed to cooler, seasonal temperatures with higher humidity. WearCOAT 440FS is also ideal for floors in refrigerated, cold storage areas.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
