Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has launched Acrolon Ultra, a high gloss, solvent-based acrylic polyurethane providing long-term UV protection for high profile structures where high durability is required. It provides hiding and film formation at low film thicknesses (2-3 mils DFT), offering a distinct cost advantage during application. It is suitable for use in USDA-inspected facilities and on water storage tanks. At less than 340 g/L VOC, it complies with current Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) limits. Acrolon Ultra is optimized for brush and roll application and can be sprayed using airless or conventional spray equipment. It also provides a rapid return to service; the coating can be dry to the touch in as few as two hours after application.
