Valspar Flooring, a division of Valspar Inc., has voluntarily reduced the volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions of its EC-17 Ultra UVR Epoxy coating to comply with VOC regulations in all 50 states, including the most stringent in the country, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 113.
EC-17 can be utilized in industrial and decorative flooring applications, serving as a stand-alone coating (clear or pigmented), a system topcoat, a quartz system grout coat, or a binder in a slurry system. It adds high-gloss appearance, while providing long-lasting protection against dusting, chalking and yellowing.
EC-17 is a water-clear, 100% solids epoxy coating with superior UV stability that safeguards flooring from discoloration, yellowing, and fading due to exposure to sunlight or indoor fluorescent lighting. Any flooring subjected to damaging UV rays, including manufacturing plants, health care clinics, transportation areas, and commercial venues, will benefit from EC-17 Ultra UVR Epoxy.
In addition to its inherent attributes as a UV-resistant coating, EC-17 Ultra UVR Epoxy is further differentiated from conventional epoxies by its high chemical resistance and low viscosity for improved application properties.
Crystal-clear EC-17 can be applied in a variation of 5 to 10 mils and is available in convenient, pre-proportioned 2.52-gal kits to facilitate easier installation. A mixed gallon provides coverage of approximately 160-320 sq ft.
