Stuart Dean will also showcase its Marcoat Epoxy Grout flooring system at its booth (#1813).  The AIA National Convention is the industry's leading event for architects and design professionals to attend continuing education sessions, network and learn about the newest products and technologies.

"Every property has an architectural surface that HardCore can address, from classrooms and cafeterias to patios, stairwells and anywhere in the back of the house," said Mark Parrish, president and CEO of Stuart Dean.  "We are pleased to showcase these solutions for the first time at the AIA National Convention. The HardCore product line provides a significant value proposition by offering wall and floor resurfacing that is fast, durable and antimicrobial."

Stuart Dean's HardCore product line for floor and wall resurfacing, restoration and protection creates beautiful, durable and cost-effective solutions to new or damaged concrete and other substrates with the application of five advanced products:

    --  HardShield:  Water-based, clear epoxy sealer for floors, walls and stone

        surfaces. Excellent UV resistance, available with a patent-pending

        antimicrobial polymer system.

    --  HardFlor:  Heavy duty ¼" bonded industrial flooring surfaces.

    --  HardCote:  Customizable coating for walls.  Bonds with concrete, metals

        and industrial surfaces.  Ultra-hygienic, antimicrobial polymer
