Florock Adopts Environmentally Friendly Packaging for Decorative Flooring Products

Published on 2011-01-19. Author : SpecialChem

CHICAGO, IL -- In an effort to continually augment green business practices, Florock® recently adopted new, more environmentally friendly packaging for some of its most popular industrial and decorative flooring products.

In addition to being better for the planet, the new containers allow for easier on-site mixing and lower shipping costs for the customer.

All Florock solvent-free floor coatings are now packaged in the new recyclable gallon can packaging bearing the recyclable symbol accepted at most recycling centers. The innovative design makes it easy for contractors to recycle the new container. By being nestable, empty cans are conveniently stored in a small space, awaiting transport to the local recycling center. Eliminating the lip at the top, the new can allows users to scrape out every last drop of concrete floor paint - emphasizing economy, as well as ecology.

Longtime consumers of Florock's single gallon-size epoxy floor paint will note that the new plastic cans are packed six each per fiberboard box, in place of the traditional four each. Reduction of fiberboard brings yet another benefit to the environment. Utilizing recycled 55 gallon containers for all drum packaging has long been the company policy. The revolutionary one gallon can is just another in a long line of eco-steps being implemented.
