California High School Building Exterior

California High School
A California High School

PROBLEM:

Due to the dramatic climate conditions of the West Coast, a California high school was frequently repainting the exterior of their buildings. In desperate need of a coating that would last longer than a year and maintain its vibrant color, the high school looked to Rust-Oleum to protect the surfaces. Specifically, the high school was in search of red and yellow coatings that were attractive and blended with the campus environment.

SOLUTION:

The school district officials considered the use of powder coatings as a solution to improve the color and gloss retention on its structures. However, these products would have dramatically increased building maintenance costs. After assessing the buildings, a Rust-Oleum sales representative recommended that Industrial Choice® 5200 System DTM Acrylic Enamel to be applied to campus buildings and the sports facility.

The 5200 System was recommended because of a previously
successful application on a manufacturing facility, which was subjected to similar exposure conditions. The gloss and color on that building had excellent results, even after seven years. The product could be applied direct-to-metal without a primer and is versatile enough to be applied by brush, roller or spray gun. Since the coating is water-based, has low odor, and features a low VOC of <250 g/l, it met the regulations required by the district. Creating a beautiful campus and abiding by environmentally sound regulations were Rust-Oleum’s goals as they worked on this project. The school district personnel were amazed at the end result and pleased to know the coatings would last a long time. The Industrial Choice® 5200 System DTM Acrylic Enamel was applied to metal doors, ferrous and non-ferrous metal trim and ornamental and structural steel on the high school’s buildings and sports facility.
