Sherwin-Williams Introduces Polysiloxane for Replacing Two-Coat Epoxy-Polyurethane Systems with a Single Coat
VOC-compliant, isocyanate-free Polysiloxane XLE is ideal for high performance industrial environments (CLEVELAND, March 31, 2004) - Sherwin-Williams Industrial and Marine Coatings group offers Polysiloxane XLE, a new addition to the company's ExpressTech(TM) family of coatings. Polysiloxane XLE is a two-component high solids epoxy siloxane that combines the properties of both a high performance epoxy and a polyurethane in one coat. The high gloss, self-priming coating is VOC-compliant and isocyanate-free. Its one-coat application minimizes the high cost of hourly labor. Fast-drying Polysiloxane XLE dries in one hour to a corrosion-resistant finish with excellent long-term color and gloss retention. It may be applied by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray equipment. Polysiloxane XLE may be applied directly to properly prepared steel in industrial environments or over inorganic zinc-rich primers.
