Water-Based Floor Coatings with No Hot-Tire Pickup.

The time has come to drop solvent-based flooring systems in favor of lower-VOC, water-based systems for automotive dealerships, aircraft hangars, and numerous other applications — without sacrificing performance.

AquArmor™ WBU Water-Based Urethane Floor Coatings offer no hot-tire pickup and improved hot-tire staining. This next generation of high-performance, water-based, aliphatic urethane coatings, which work on both floors and walls, deliver high-performance application and aesthetic characteristics that rival solvent-based products – with the added benefit of lower VOCs than solvent-based formulations.

AquArmor™ WBU Water-Based Urethane Floor Coatings keep floors looking their best – from application to long-term use. The coatings’ wet edge application properties help to minimize the potential for roller lap marks, ensuring a consistent sheen. After curing, the coatings offer the best resistance to hot-tire pickup and hot-tire staining compared to other water-based floor coatings, preventing tires from leaving excessive, permanent stains – and eliminating the need to park vehicles on mats. The coatings also offer superior chemical-resistance, helping to enhance long-term aesthetics.

Giving applicators greater installation scheduling flexibility, AquArmor WBU Water-Based Urethane Floor Coatings have excellent 18-hour intercoat adhesion. The coatings also have a short dry time, permitting foot traffic at 18 hours, to enable fast returns to service.

AquArmor™ WBU Water-Based Urethane Floor Coatings are available in multiple finishes and custom colors. Gloss-sheen GP4410 is available in clear, 10 standard colors, and two tint bases, which can be custom tinted. GP4411 is only available in a clear satin finish.
