As a Midwest industrial and commercial painting contractor, with footprints in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana, we know how companies value paint durability in extreme weather conditions. That's just part of the territory—literally. So what type of paints should you use in these conditions?
Sherwin-Williams recently announced a new fluoropolymer urethane coating for these type of conditions. Called FluoroKem HS, this new paint is high-solids, ambient-cured, fluoropolymer urethane finish coating. According to Sherwin-Williams, FluroKem HS is ideal for sports and live music stadiums, bridges, water tanks and other structures that must endure extreme weather, while retaining color and finish. This would also be of great use on silos, airports, etc. It's fast-drying, graffiti-resistant, and chemical and abrasion resistant. This is the type of paint you'll want.
“FluoroKem HS provides unparalleled color and gloss retention, chemical resistance, and adhesion to primers not seen yet in the water, wastewater and commercial industries," said Narsi Bodapati, VP of Marketing for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. "The long coating service life of FluoroKem HS reduces the frequency of maintenance work and subsequent downtime interruption," said Bodapati.
Various other types of coatings exist for extreme weather conditions, including elastomeric coatings. So, if you have any questions about how to keep your facility or structure's color and gloss looking good and durable in extreme weather conditions, please get in contact with us.
