The ability of "environmentally friendly" waterborne acrylic maintenance coatings to provide outstanding protection under demanding conditions is dramatically demonstrated by the performance of the system used to refurbish the century-old lighthouse at South Carolina's Hunting Island State Park. More than six years ago, a new multi-coat waterborne acrylic system was applied to the venerable cast-iron plate of which the lighthouse is constructed. Today, despite the stress-filled conditions under which it must function, the coating shows essentially no evidence of wear. The waterborne acrylic maintenance coatings dry rapidly and adhere tenaciously to varied surfaces, including wood, masonry, and metal. They resist corrosion, chemicals, and solvents, and are stable under ultraviolet radiation, resisting color loss and degradation under prolonged exposure to sunlight.
