Introducing our Green Metal Refinishing Program
New York, February 8, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) – Platinum Maintenances Services Corporation announced the introduction of Platinum’s Green Metal Refinishing Program that is safer for the environment, the occupants of the building and our workers.
This new program helps our customers achieve their sustainability objectives and LEED Certification for their buildings.
Working closely with a product manufacturer over the past four years, Platinum developed and tested an environmentally safe lacquer (PROCOAT) and stripper (PROSTRIP). As a result of the combined effort Platinum’s Green Metal Refinishing Program has been implemented at 200 West Street with great success along with several other locations.
Platinum’s “PROCOAT” is a unique state of the art clear coating system for various types of metals. It is extremely durable and has only a mild odor thus eliminating complaints on the offensive smell generated by other lacquers. Several versions of the scent are currently available and we now have the capability to match the fragrance of scent delivery systems.
PROCOAT has been tested by several laboratories (VTEC and CHEMTEC Labs) meeting the Green Seal GS 47 standard. Based on the compiled analytical data from the series of testing the products do not contain any hazardous pollutants in terms of gaseous vapor or solid materials either organic or inorganic or any compound that is considered by the EPA to be hazardous to the environment and contains 50% less than the maximum allowable VOC content.
Toxicity studies performed with fish, aquatic invertebrates and aquatic plants showed no toxic effect. This product does not contain any chemicals listed by the State of California under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) as being known to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.
“Our field trials have been very successful at several locations. It is safe, durable and an effective product that can be easily substituted for other metal lacquer products. We will be introducing this program to our customers and the marketplace over the next several weeks. A description of the program and a summary of the features and benefits are available upon request” said Edward Wasilewski, Vice President Sales & Marketing.
