Sherwin-Williams Garners Top Honours in PaintSquare Prestige Awards
Easy-to-Apply Products Win Top Innovation and Top Product Awards
CLEVELAND, OHIO (November 17, 2020) - Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine won two important awards in this year’s PaintSquare Prestige Awards programme – Top Innovation and Top Product – for new coatings that enable faster applications, reduce costs and improve durability.
The Top Innovation: Coatings award went to Nova-Plate® 360 Tank Lining, a game-changing new product that greatly reduces the amount of time required to apply interior linings to steel tanks and vessels for protection against aggressive chemicals.
This award is given to a new technology that has benefited contractors who apply the product; is different from other products on the market; and has been proven in real-world applications.
Nova-Plate 360 – Top Innovation: Coatings
Nova-Plate 360 Tank Lining enables asset owners and coatings applicators not only to increase application speed, but also minimise asset downtime. The high-solids, flake-reinforced, novolac-based tank lining features single-leg spraying (along with plural airless spray capabilities), as well as the option to include Optically Activated Pigments (OAP) to enhance application success and streamline tank inspections, resulting in return-to-service times as fast as 24 hours. Once in the field, Nova-Plate 360 tank lining delivers unparalleled chemical resistance and performance. The product is also PTFE-enhanced, which eases tank cleaning processes and reduces the amount of time assets are out of service.
Nova-Plate 360 tank lining is designed to protect the interiors of steel tanks, particularly from high temperatures and high pressures found in oil and gas processing applications, as well as in railcar asset interiors.
