Green Label Stamp of Approval for Flowcrete’s Traffic Deck Coatings
04 Mar 2014
Flowcrete Asia has announced that two of the company’s resin based deck coating systems have received the Singapore Green Label Scheme’s stamp of approval.
Deckshield ID and Deckcoat EP are two innovative traffic deck coating systems, based on polyurethane and epoxy chemistry respectively, that have been designed to protect the concrete substrate of multi-storey parking developments.
Launched in May 1992 and administered by the Singapore Environment Council since June 1999, the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme is Singapore’s leading environmental standard and certification mark.
The certification evaluates building materials through stringent standards and encourages manufacturers to constantly improve the eco-development of products and services. Green Label certified products offer a competitive advantage in the market place and the scheme has proved useful in aiding consumers and specification professionals to address environmental sustainability when making their purchase decisions.
David McNeece, International Business Development and Marketing Manager for Flowcrete Group said: “I’m delighted to announce that both Deckshield ID and Deckcoat EP have been recognised as eco-friendly flooring options by the Singapore Green Labelling Scheme. This certification is recognised globally and will go a long way to increasing the products credibility in an area where sustainable development is at the forefront of the construction industry.”
Deckshield ID represents a low VOC, solvent-free deck coating formulation based on a water-borne polyurethane chemistry that has been specifically designed to deal with the unique demands of multi-level parking environments. The system offers enhanced durability and exhibits crack-bridging properties to accommodate thermal cycling as well as any dynamic movement of the structure.
Deckshield ID has a proven track record all over the world with 500,000 square metres of the material recently installed at The Dubai Mall – one of the world’s largest retail developments – located in the United Arab Emirates and a further 150,000 square metres of the system selected for the adjoining multi-storey parking structure at Mumbai Airport’s new Terminal 2 development in India.
Deckcoat EP is a low VOC, solvent-free epoxy car park deck coating system that provides a colourful, watertight and hardwearing surface for intermediate and basement decks of multi-storey car parking structures as well as other trafficable suspended floors. The system has proved popular in Singapore, with a recent high-profile installation at Capita Malls Star Vista development in Buona Vista where over 40,000 square metres of the product have been laid.
