Slide-Lok announces new garage floor coating system; improves important aspects of prior polyaspartic floor coating system
Phoenix, AZ – February 29, 2008 – Slide-Lok announces today the release of its new and improved one-day polyaspartic garage floor coating system for the garage interiors, decorative concrete and commercial floor coating markets. Slide-Lok, a pioneer in the fast growing garage and closet home organization markets, introduced the garage interiors industry to Slide-Lok's first generation polyaspartic floor coating in late 2006. Since the product's introduction, Slide-Lok's one-day floor coating system quickly set the industry standard—namely a quick, one-day installation and fast return to service the next day.
Despite the tremendous advantages that Slide-Lok's first generation floor coating system offered over prior technologies, Slide-Lok almost immediately went to work improving its industry leading product. Brian Strayer, President of Slide-Lok, stated, "After rolling our product out last year, our dealers immediately began identifying areas they wanted us to improve upon, including not pre-mixing pigment, having more consistency in colors from batch to batch, not having to use a more expensive and more difficult to install 100% solids mix to embed floor inlays, better packaging to reduce freight damage, decreasing the odor of the product during installation and cure, and better pricing. Our new system addresses all of these areas and more, and with the popularity of floor inlays on the rise, our dealers are going to appreciate not having to stock a more expensive and more difficult to use 100% solids formulation in order to install floor inlays."
Dave McClearen, Slide-Lok's Floor Coating Sales Manager, stated, "Dealers and customers are going to love our new and improved polyaspartic concrete floor coating system." McClearen added, "Our new product has all the advantages of our previous polyaspartic garage floor coating system but, more importantly, addresses all the shortcomings that our dealers identified to us." McClearen commented, "What really sets our new floor coating system apart is that the odor is barely noticeable and quickly dissipates, giving our dealers and customers a tremendous improvement over our prior floor coating system." McClearen also noted, "Our new floor coating system gives our dealers new opportunities to grow their businesses as they will now be able to pursue commercial and indoor applications that were just not practical given the limitations of our first generation coating system that have been solved with our new system."
