Sherwin-Williams Launches Improved Moisture Cure Urethane for Military Applications

New urethane meets MIL-DTL-53039 requirements and delivers time-saving application benefits

CLEVELAND (June 10, 2021) – Sherwin-Williams now offers an enhanced moisture cure urethane specifically engineered for ease of application in high humidity and other challenging environments. The topcoat delivers exceptional protection for military equipment, and provides improved dry times and consistent results. The new urethane is approved by the Army Research Lab and meets MIL-DTL-53039 requirements.

Applicators can achieve a high film build in any environment through the product’s enhanced sag resistance – up to 15 mils wet – and improved adhesion properties. As a ready-to-spray solution, the new moisture cure urethane helps applicators reduce their material and labor costs while providing top-quality performance and consistency.

“Beyond meeting performance specifications, the new moisture cure urethane optimizes throughput and batch-to-batch uniformity for our customers,” said Matt Flory, Sherwin-Williams global director of sales and marketing for military coatings. “The ready-to-spray formula also contributes to increased productivity. It sets a new standard for performance and application for military topcoats.”

With more than 130 distribution points across the United States, government agencies, original equipment manufacturers and tier suppliers can gain access to Sherwin-Wiliams military products and services within the same or next day – delivering the quick turnaround and quality solutions their customers demand.
