Baseball – and Induron’s Perma-Gloss – are Hot Right Now!

By Jeff White, Induron Sales Manager

It’s September, and the baseball pennant races are in full swing. The action for the playoffs is hot. Guess what else is hot – Induron’s Perma-Gloss Fluorourethane!

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.
