Amershield
Aliphatic Polyurethane Coating

Amershield

Product Data

  • Unique, high-solids, high-build, multifunctional coating
  • Low VOC
  • High-gloss, self-priming coating
  • Excellent gloss retention
  • Direct to metal and concrete in selected environments
  • Outstanding abrasion, reverse and direct impact resistance
  • Good chemical and stain resistance
  • Tough and flexible coating

Typical Uses
Amershield displays high gloss and excellent color and gloss retention during extended service periods. The direct-to-metal capabilities of Amershield provide a single-coat system at reduced installation cost for use in protected environments. Compatible over prepared, smooth cold-rolled steel and abrasive blasted hot-rolled steel.

Amershield has excellent adhesion to concrete providing a durable, glossy, easy-to-clean flooring system. May be used over Amerlock® as a durable, weather-resistant topcoat for extra heavy duty service; over zinc-rich epoxy coatings as a direct topcoat; over intact, old paint as a maintenance product.

Amershield's curing time may be adjusted with Amercoat 866M Accelerator for convenient application at low temperatures or when faster cure is required. A full color range is available in the PPG Rapid Response color system to provide timely delivery.
