Industrial flooring solutions provider Dudick (Streetsboro, Ohio, USA) has announced the launch of Steri-Flor UV, described as a multi-functional epoxy floor coating with increased UV stability compared to conventional epoxies.
According to the company, it provides good resistance to common chemicals and daily traffic and may be used as a base/color coat, receiving coat, or grout coat for decorative broadcast floors.
“We saw the need to create a product that can meet the everyday demands of our flooring contractors and have good raw material availability, all while being very cost competitive,” says Anthony Allegra, global product line manager at Carboline. “Steri-Flor UV completes the Steri Series product lineup due to its increased UV stability.”
The coating’s decorative aspect makes it ideal for public spaces like retail spaces, automotive dealerships, and veterinary clinics and workshops, according to the company. Its chemical resistance allows it to perform well in clean rooms and laboratories.
“The versatility of Steri-Flor UV is very exciting,” said David Dudick, vice president of Dudick. “It’s an ideal product for distributors and contractors since it is crystal clear but will take pigment packs. Steri-Flor UV can replace the need for warehousing multiple products to build out everyday epoxy flooring systems.”
According to the company, Steri-Flor UV has great flow and leveling characteristics, along with more UV inhibitors than most economical 100% solids epoxies. When paired with easy-to-use color packs in the field, this product allows contractors to stock one versatile product for any number of projects.
In 2021, Carboline announced the acquisition of Dudick, Inc. Dudick is described as a world leader in high-performance coatings, flooring, and tank linings, headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio.
For over 50 years, Dudick has provided solutions in corrosion resistance and chemical containment systems for food processing, steel production, chemical processing, pulp and paper, electronics, power, and biological research labs.
