Perma-Gloss knocks it out of the park when compared to the minimum requirements of AWWA D-102-06 for a finish coat on Outside Coating System No. 4. OCS-4 minimum requirements (not sure if you can really call it minimum as it is one of the toughest requirements out there) is 95% gloss retention after a minimum of 1252 MJ/m sq exposed per the EMMAQUA test procedure.
What is EMMAQUA? Think exposure in the hotArizonadesert with specialized mirrors directing the light on the test panels for a long time. Intense. Kind of reminds me of a childhood backyard science project that involved a magnifying glass and bugs… but that’s a different story.
Induron’s Perma-Gloss almost accomplished the near-impossible with an average score of 98.67% gloss retention with no panels below 98% gloss retention. Don’t you wish your favorite MLB team could maintain a winning percentage of .9867 for an entire year? If they could, you would have an exciting October. Don’t wait until the World Series to pick a winner – specify Induron’s Perma-Gloss for your projects that need long-term exterior durability and you’ll have a winner for years to come.
