Sherwin-Williams adds Acrolon Ultra to polyurethane portfolio

Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings launched Acrolon Ultra, a high gloss, solvent-based acrylic polyurethane providing long-term UV protection for high profile structures where high durability is required.

“Sherwin-Williams developed Acrolon Ultra to combine high-performing polyurethane with aesthetics for the protection of bridges, stadiums, and water and storage tanks,” said Narsi Bodapati, vice president of marketing, Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings. “Our accelerated weathering testing and field experience is showing this coating’s superior gloss retention extends the recoat cycle as much as two times, providing the lowest total cost of ownership to our customers.”

Acrolon Ultra provides excellent hiding and film formation at low film thicknesses (2-3 mils DFT), offering a distinct cost advantage during application. It is suitable for use in USDA-inspected facilities.

The product complements Sherwin-Williams’ polyurethane portfolio by offering a solvent-based alternative to WB Acrolon 100, a high performance water-based polyurethane introduced in 2008. At less than 340 g/L VOC, it complies with current Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) limits.

Acrolon Ultra is optimized for brush and roll application and can be sprayed using airless or conventional spray equipment. It also provides a rapid return to service; the coating can be dry to the touch in as few as two hours after application. It can be shaded to virtually any color through the company’s 4,000 company-owned facilities worldwide.
