Choosing the right paint for a busy veterinary office
Last Fall, the Laytonsville Veterinary Practice contracted O’Connor’s Painting to re-paint the interior of their offices and exam rooms. Off I went in search to find the best paint product to use for the project. I needed something that offered durability, good coverage, was easy to wash and had a low odor. What I found was was Sherwin Williams Pro Industrial Zero VOC Catalyzed Epoxy commercial coating which had all the benefits I was looking for in a paint product for the veterinary practice.
- Zero VOC’s
- Extremely Durable
- Created a hard, tough coating that is super washable
- Superior resistance to abrasion, corrosion, chemicals, stains… all things that can occur in a heavily used exam room that has high maintenance
- Flowed and leveled to a smooth finish
- Comes in egg-shell and semi-gloss sheens
When applying the first coat, it was dry to the touch after one hour. However we did not apply a second coat immediately. According to Sherwin Williams we waited the required 8 hours before applying the second coat. In a busy vets office with animals that can scratch the walls, you definitely want the product to cure properly which takes between 5-7 days before the rooms are put into heavy use.
The only problem I found with this product is that if you let it dry longer than 72 hours before re-coating, you have to sand the surface again.
This is great. It give’s tips to the people. Nice one.
