Florock® Polymer Flooring, manufactured by Crawford Laboratories, Inc., Chicago, has launched two new products as the next generation of its popular Floropoxy 4900 Epoxy high performance floor coating – New Floropoxy 4900 and Floropoxy 4900V. These innovative epoxy polymer coatings are the latest technology in high performance protection for horizontal and vertical applications, furnishing excellent colorfastness, chemical resistance and hardness, with improved convenience, ease of application and potential savings.
Chicago, IL: Florock® Polymer Flooring, manufactured by Crawford Laboratories, Inc. of Chicago, presents 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, now 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 at the jobsite. While each product has a unique Part A Component, they share the same Part B Component, enabling users to stock fewer SKUs. Solvent-free with zero VOC, Floropoxy 4900 and 4900V, available in 3 gallon cases or 15 gallon pail sets, meet USDA, FDA, OSHA and EPA requirements and qualify for U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED points.
Florock Polymer Flooring, a pioneer in polymer coating production when founded in 1952, remains a 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.”
