If you have been to our home page, you might have noticed that there are two featured products every month! This month, Parking Lot & Driveway and Liner are our two featured products. If you missed it, check out our blog post about  Parking Lot & Driveway. Today’s focus is on a unique product we call Liner.

Liner is a coating that contains more than 50% cryogenically crushed, recycled rubber. So what? It’s actually pretty interesting what this paint is capable of. Interesting, yes, but also very cool.

Rubber on its own has some unique properties which it brings with it to lend Liner as they are integrated to become one product. I know, everyone knows about rubber’s traits, but let me take a second to highlight what this means for Liner. Rubber is highly durable, flexible and waterproof. These characteristics, with the utilisation of the suspended rubber in the patented formula that makes Liner, are now characteristics of Liner itself.

What this means is that, aside from the obvious, already mentioned traits, Liner also:

  • Protects and insulates
  • Is dent and scratch resistant
  • Resists oils and solvents
  • Is low VOC

But these are only some of the features of Liner, it is also non-toxic and non-carcinogenic AND my favourite, all you need to clean your tools and any spills is soapy water. I know, I know, it sounds ludicrous, but trowels, paint brushes and spray guns can be cleaned with water!

To top it all off, Liner is a product which is environmentally friendly. It is helping us reduce the abundance of tyre waste throughout the world while solving multiple problems with one coating!

What more could you want in one coating?

 

The featured product of the moment is Parking Lot & Driveway. You may have noticed that the featured product changes, normally around the middle of each month, so don’t forget to check back each month for the monthly featured products!

There are two featured products, but today the focus is on Parking Lot & Driveway.

This product is so versatile that people are constantly telling us of new uses for it. To tell you the truth, it reminds me a little of Gaffa Tape, and the saying ‘Gaffa tape is like the Force, it has a light side and dark side and holds the world together’. I guess, as I see it, where Gaffa tape cannot waterproof and protect surfaces; Hyperseal takes over.

To Seal, Waterproof and Protect, that might need to be the new mission statement for Parking Lot & Driveway. But this still does not describe all elements that this versatile product is capable of.

As you know, a large percentage of its composition is rubber. This means that the surface that is applied with Parking Lot & Driveway (as well as the above mentioned excellent points) is insulated and ergonomic.

I know that I have personally felt the difference, after walking across a parking lot of standard bitumen, on a stinking hot summers day, I happened to be wearing a skirt – I know this is not everyone’s chosen dress code, but it would be the same if you were wearing shorts. The heat that was reflected off the bitumen was intense and extremely uncomfortable. Half the parking lot was painted in Parking Lot & Driveway. On walking onto a coated section of the parking lot, the effect was immediately felt. There was still some heat reflected off the coated ground, but nothing in comparison to the heat treated thermals that were hitting my legs on crossing the uncoated bitumen. I immediately felt relief as the temperature around me felt like it had dropped. The effect really was quite astonishing. The only disappointing thing about this experiment was that I then had to return across the uncoated bitumen and endure what felt like sunburn emanating from the ground.

If you have a surface that needs coating, why not give Parking Lot & Driveway a go! If you have cracks that need to be filled first, for a flat and smooth finish, checkout Caulk - Crack Filler before coating with Parking Lot & Driveway.


 

This is the final step for the application of Parking Lot & Driveway on to the factory floor! If you have missed the first two blogs, find them here:

Just a quick note to bring you up to date anyway, Hyperseal Australia was approached for more information about covering a factory floor, primarily for additional safety to be added to the factory but it was also specifically requested if any of our Hyperseal Australia products are environmentally friendly, green. Following our answers, as outlined in Post 1 of 3: Warehouse Floor, it was decided to go ahead with the factory floor with the product: Parking Lot & Driveway.

The above picture is the finished factory floor with one coat of Parking Lot & Driveway applied by a spray gun. This is such a versatile product and is very easy to apply. Application can be made with a spray gun, push broom, trowel or brush, and clean up requires no chemicals, simply wash clean equipment, tools and spills promptly with warm, soapy water.

And there you have it! An insulated, waterproof, slip resistant, ergonomic and durable floor covering that is very easy to apply and clean up after, and it’s environmentally friendly!
