Pro Industrial™ High Performance Epoxy

Engineered for surfaces where chemical and abrasion resistance is essential, this all-purpose epoxy is specifically designed for industrial maintenance environments and high-performance architectural applications. Pre-measured and easy to mix, it provides a one-coat, high-film build. It is chemical and abrasion resistant, and is acceptable for use in USDA inspected facilities.

Pro Industrial™ Multi-Surface Acrylic Coating

Multi-Surface Acrylic is specifically engineered to provide high hide and good stain resistance. This interior/exterior, self-priming, waterborne gloss acrylic can be applied to marginally clean surfaces, making it ideal for use on walls and ceilings found in warehouses, manufacturing structures, schools, hospitals, hotels, commercial buildings and industrial sites, where a thorough cleaning is impractical. It provides excellent color and gloss retention and is great for use on a variety of substrates. Multi-Surface Acrylic is a dryfall-type coating that provides alkyd-like hardness. It is ideal when multiple substrates need to be painted, but only one product purchase is desired. This fast-drying gloss acrylic is easy to apply by brush, roll or spray and is intended for interior and exterior use on marginally prepared surfaces.

Pro Industrial™ Water Based Alkyd Urethane

This interior/exterior enamel provides beauty and durability when applied to surfaces such as properly prepared drywall, wood, masonry and metal.

This dryfall coating applies easily by airless spray and dries rapidly – before it has a chance to settle on machinery, equipment and floors. It’s ideal for exposed ceilings and overhead surfaces in commercial, warehouse and manufacturing facilities. Its excellent hide covers most surfaces and colors in one single coat. It retains whiteness and light reflectance properties, even when industrial fumes are present, and results in a Class A flame spread rating when applied to a non-combustible surface. It’s compliant with all current VOC regulations as well as LEED NC, CI, and CS requirements.
