Press release date: March 4, 2008

MINNEAPOLIS-(March 4, 2008)-Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), one of the world's leading manufacturers of surface maintenance equipment and coatings, today announced the reformulation of its popular WearGuard - CRU chemical-resistant urethane topcoats to meet the strict Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) requirements of the Lake Michigan Air Directors Consortium (LADCO), the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC), and the Chemicals Control Branch of Environment Canada.

Since September of 1999, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has limited the emissions of VOCs from industrial maintenance coatings to 450 g/L. Several states and counties have even more stringent VOC limits, restricting emissions to as low as 100 g/L. While the original WearGuard - CRU coatings have always met EPA VOC regulations, the reformulated coatings, under the name WearGuard-CRU 250 remain below 250 g/L, complying with many of the more stringent state and county standards as well.

"The introduction of our WearGuard - CRU 250 coatings is yet another example of how Tennant Company is continuing its leadership role in environmental stewardship and sustainability. Our CRU 250 coatings join many other Tennant coating products that have for years offered reduced solvent emissions below 450 g/L, 250 g/L, and even 100 g/L," said Tom Harris, global coatings product manager with Tennant Company.

Harris added that WearGuard - CRU 250 coatings offer not only reduced solvents but also superior chemical wear resistance and UV light stability. More specifically, like their predecessors, WearGuar - CRU 250 coatings are extremely durable, withstanding SkydrolŪ, jet fuels and other industrial chemicals; create a safer workplace by offering superior light reflectivity; and come in a 100 percent aliphatic, non-yellowing formula to maintain their appearance over time.

Tennant Company's new WearGuard - CRU 250 topcoats are available in white, light gray and gray.

patching surfaces

How do you patch or repair demages to the CRU-250 surface if it gets chipped or damaged from aircraft movement or falling tools etc.
