Florock® Introduces Floropoxy 4900 & Floropoxy 4900V Epoxy Floor & Wall Coatings

Published on 2015-04-24. Author : SpecialChem

CHICAGO, IL -- Florock® Polymer Flooring, manufactured by Crawford Laboratories of Chicago, presented the most recent cutting-edge products to emerge from its Research and Development Department – New Floropoxy 4900 Epoxy with reduced viscosity for ease of horizontal installation and Floropoxy 4900V Thixotropic Epoxy for both horizontal and vertical applications. Providing outstanding non-yellowing characteristics and colorfastness, the innovative polymer coatings impart concrete floors as well as poured and precast concrete walls, CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit) and cement board walls with industry-leading chemical resistant protection, while simultaneously improving installation convenience, thus potentially lowering needed jobsite man hours and cost.

The updated version of Floropoxy 4900, with markedly lower viscosity than the original polymer coating formulation, offers improved handling ease, while maintaining its versatility for use as a hard, durable, colorfast mid coat and topcoat in a variety of Florock Flooring Systems. New Floropoxy 4900V is the thixotropic version of this product, providing the high viscosity needed when a “stippled” or orange-peel finish is desired on either horizontal or approved vertical surfaces.

Floropoxy 4900 and Floropoxy 4900V are both two-component epoxy coatings with 2:1 mix ratios that may be easily tinted with Florock 100% Solids Colorants.While each product has a unique Part A Component, they share the same Part B Component, enabling users to stock fewer SKUs. They are solvent-free with zero VOC.

Florock Polymer Flooring, is one of the market vanguard in its manufacture of fluid-applied, seamless flooring and wall solutions for commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. The line includes hundreds of heavy-duty decorative systems that utilize Florock’s broad spectrum of urethane mortar, polyaspartic, thin film urethane, methyl methacrylate (MMA Acrylic) and of course, epoxy-based resin technologies.

When asked about the newly launched floor coating products, Florock Vice President, Aviva Llorens, explained, “We make a point of carefully listening to our clients and providing them with what they want. Development of the new generation Floropoxy 4900 and 4900V is just another example of how we foster uniquely collaborative relationships with customers and allies in the marketplace that result in mutually beneficial outcomes for all.”
