New Garland Tuff-Coat Coating Damp-Proofs and Beautifies Walls

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 30, 2011

Garlands new Tuff-Coat single-component, low-solvent, emulsified poly-resin architectural wall coating damp-proofs and beautifies all types of exterior and interior masonry wall surfaces, including concrete, brick work, stucco, and exterior insulating finishing systems (EIFS). It provides heavy-bodied protection against moisture, UV, fumes, and fresh or salt water, while allowing water vapor to escape the structure through its breathable film.

Tuff-Coat wall coating is low fading and hides stains and discolorations. It is alkali-resistant, and provides a washable surface. Tuff-Coat wall coating is available in both a smooth and textured finish. Its low-odor formula meets the VOC regulatory requirements of all 50 states. The smooth and textured versions can be applied by brush or roller; the smooth version can also be sprayed.

Tuff-Coat high-build wall coating has a dry-film thickness of 10 to 20 mils. The heavy build is primarily due to embedded polymers, which allow for a higher solid content without subsequent cracking or blistering of the coating. With a tensile strength as high as 160 psi and an elongation factor as high as 585 percent, for the smooth version, Tuff-Coat wall coatings provide durable protection and will not peel, chip, blister or crack when applied on properly prepared surfaces.

According to Garland product manager, Tom Stuewe, Most coating failures on concrete buildings are caused by using the wrong coating material, for example, using a coating that is not alkali tolerant or using paint instead of a high-performance coating. Tuff-Coat is the ideal high-performance solution for masonry walls, damp-proofing the masonry surface while bridging hairline cracks. When used in conjunction with a soft polyester reinforcement, its a virtually bulletproof damp-proofing system. As an added benefit, Tuff-Coats reflective surface help reduce surface temperatures.
