GOODYEAR, Ariz., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationwide, schools are closing their doors to students for the summer, which means maintenance crews are stepping in to spruce up what's in disrepair. With just a few months to complete any work and increasingly tighter budgets, schools need fast, cost-effective ways to maintain their facilities, including those well-used, worn-down gymnasium floors. When it comes to coating standards, Flash UV(TM) is sealing new deals for schools everywhere, considering that this award-winning, affordable, "green" option is specifically designed for onsite finishing when downtimes are limited.
"The traditional option for gymnasium finish has been oil-modified polyurethane," says Ken Tran and JC Meyers, Proprietors of Flash UV (http://www.flashuv.com). "But that old way requires several weeks to cure, and it emits dangerous VOCs and a strong chemical odor, forcing many schools to shut off the ventilation for that entire time period. Flash UV is a brand-new eco-product, which uses an ultra-violet cured polyurethane finish with low odor and VOCs far below the federal guidelines in all 50 states. What's more, the process of this new coating standard allows for immediate use after the finish is applied."
Test results from Flash UV have shown that this new technology outlasts the traditional finish, eliminating the yearly need to re-coat, thus saving schools time and money. The final product has remarkable finish clarity, is easy to maintain, and provides exceptional grip for athletic performance.
In fact, the features of Flash UV are so innovative that just this past May, the company, in partnership with Johnson County Public School District 1 of Buffalo, WY, received the RadTech 2010 Emerging Technology Award. The awards ceremony took place at the RadTech UV & EB 2010 Technology Expo and Conference, the world's largest UV & EB Event conference and exhibition dedicated to fostering educational, technical, and scientific advancement in the manufacture and use of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) curable products. Flash UV now shares the honor with past award recipients, such as the United States Air Force, Ford Motor Company, 3M, Breit Technologies, Armstrong World Industries, Object Geometries and more.
"We are thrilled to be recognized as pioneers in the UV field, and this award is great testimony to the innovation and credibility of Flash UV," Tran and Meyers says. "We're already in a partnership with the University of Wyoming, which is testing our finish, and we're also helping the Boys and Girls Clubs of America 'go green' with Flash UV floor finish."
