DSM has introduced a protective single-coat system designed to be applied directly to vinyl composite tile (VCT) floors that can then be returned to immediate use.

UVolve Instant Floor Guard 1873 is used to seal and protect the tiles.

UVolve Instant Floor Guard

DSM says UVolve Floor Guard requires no buffing or burnishing to maintain the finish shine.

The product eliminates the need for routine stripping, sealing and buffing, and floors are ready for traffic immediately after application due to UV instant-curing technology, according to DSM.

Maintenance, Formulation

DSM says UVolve Instant Floor Guard significantly reduces maintenance costs. Unlike acrylic floor finishes, the product is easy to clean and requires no buffing or burnishing to maintain an attractive finish, the manufacturer reports.

The VCT should be in sound, clean condition, and new tiles should be fully cured before application. Previous floor finishes should be completely removed before Instant Floor Guard is applied.

The solvent-free, low-odor formulation has near-zero VOC emissions.

The product, a reformulation of a 2011 version, is now in general distribution.

DSM Resins, part of Royal DSM, is a global supplier of resins solutions for paints and coatings, composite materials and fiber optic coatings.
