Tennant Company Introduces Eco-Friendly Electrostatic Dissipative Urethane Floor Coatings
MINNEAPOLIS—— Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today announces the release of its Eco-SDS™ static dissipative urethane floor coatings. Eco-SDS coatings provide an environmentally friendly floor covering solution for facilities that need to control static electricity to reduce the risk of damage to products.
With low odor and 13 g/L VOCs, Tennant’s Eco-SDS coatings improve productivity by minimizing facility shutdowns during application. Light stable and UV/chemical resistant, Eco-SDS™ coatings also offer high performance and a long lasting appearance.
Tennant’s Eco-SDS is ideal for electronic and healthcare manufacturing and assembly facilities and offers:
§ Electrostatic Discharge Control – Similar protection as Tennant’s WearGuard-SDS™ technology that meets ANS/ESD S20.20-2007 requirements
§ Light Stability – UV resistance provides a long lasting appearance that requires less frequent applications, saving money over time
§ Low VOCs – With just 13 g/L VOCs, can be used even where low VOCs are required by law and improves productivity by reducing downtime
§ LEED® Credit Availability – LEED Green Building Certification Program credits for Indoor Environmental Quality (4.2—Low-Emitting Materials, Paints and Coatings)
§ Durability – Lasts as long as standard urethanes and up to two times longer than standard epoxies
§ Professional Appearance – Available in satin finish or a variety of grays to complement your image and transform your floor
“Tennant is committed to not only formulating high-performing coatings but to ensuring those coatings are safe for individuals and for the environment,” said Mickey Gubman, director of Coating Technologies for Tennant Company. “Like our recently released Eco-ITS coatings, our Eco-SDS coatings accomplish both with the latter providing facility managers who require static dissipative floors an eco-friendly solution.”
