Sherwin-Williams Expands High-Performing Commercial Line with One-Part Urethane Coating

The new single-component product performs comparably to two-part counterparts, saving pros time

CLEVELAND (Oct. 12, 2020) – Sherwin-Williams is expanding its high-performing Pro Industrial line with the introduction of Pre-Catalyzed Waterbased Urethane, a new single-component coating. Offering tough, flexible protection for a variety of commercial projects, the new coating has comparable performance to a two-part waterbased urethane with the ease of a single-component product, eliminating the need for on-site measuring and mixing.

“Today’s painting professionals have larger and more complex commercial projects than ever, so it’s important to have supportive products that help them continue to succeed,” said Rick Watson, director of product information and technical services at Sherwin-Williams. “We created the Pro Industrial Pre-Catalyzed Waterbased Urethane to be a single-component product but with comparable performance attributes of a two-part coating, helping professionals meet aesthetics and performance needs of light industrial or commercial environments.”

Key features of Pro Industrial Pre-Catalyzed Waterbased Urethane include:

  • Variety of uses: Ideal for water and petrochemical tanks, power plants, amusement parks, education facilities and general exterior coatings.
  • Easy application and cleanup: Allows for easy application on a variety of interior and exterior substrates, including steel, concrete, masonry, drywall and aluminum, while the single-component aspect makes it easy to clean up and use.
  • Excellent protection: Provides excellent UV resistance to retain beautiful color and finish for a fresh look far longer than standard alkyd urethanes.
