Pigmented Protective Coatings


After many years of use, like any other products on the market today, Unity’s products can be painted for a fresh new look. We provide the necessary paints that can be sprayed on or simply rolled on for a brand new look. This application can provide less heat build up and extended life of our products for many more years to come.

Before After

Designed and developed specifically for us on all of our products, WC 44 is a solvent based cyclo-aliphatic urethane based coating. It produces a tough, glossy, hard-wearing and chemically resistant surface for the protection of urethane foam, horizontal concrete and vertical masonry, brickwork and rubber surfaces. WC 44 is available as a transparent, glossy coating or as a pigmented material that possesses excellent hydrolytic stability and ultra-violet radiation resistance as well as high tensile strength.

OUTSTANDING FEATURES:

  • Provides a long service life - Accommodates normal substrate movement and thermal stresses
  • Withstands heavy use and environmental attack
  • Maintains its attractive, clean appearance
  • Easily scrubbed and cleaned

STANDARD COLORING OPTIONS:

UNITY - Standard Paint Colors for Pigmented Rubber Tiles

APPLICATION:

 All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and completely free of oil, grease, dust, and any other substance that may interfere with adhesion. Add Part ‘B’ color concentrate to the clear Part ‘A’ and stir thoroughly for 3 minutes. WC 44 may be applied by brush, roller or airless spray technique. Apply at a rate of 100 square feet per gallon for the 1st coat and 200 square feet per gallon for the 2nd coat. Care must be taken to avoid creating foam or trapping air which may result in pinholes or hazing. Tools and equipment may be cleaned with xylene.

MAINTENANCE:

To repair damaged areas, coarse sanding should be followed by thorough cleaning with fresh water. WC 44 may then be reapplied to the clean, dry surface.
