New Polyurethane Pourable Flooring and Sealing Technology for Commercial Vehicles

On Demand Available until September 21, 2017


The wear and tear experienced by school buses, city buses, and other commercial vehicles requires advanced solutions to improve durability and safety. This free 30-minute Webinar covers the manufacturing and service requirements of commercial vehicle flooring systems and introduces a new, easy-to-apply flooring and sealing technology. The technology can eliminate side wall moldings and sealers as well as center aisle aluminum extrusions. Quick cure times allow for rapid manufacturing cycles.

The Webinar also discusses flooring solutions from both the manufacturer and supplier perspective. In addition, participants will learn about the benefits of BETAFLOOR™ pourable flooring and sealing technology, a customized two-part polyurethane technology that provides manufacturers and service providers a durable and long-lasting flooring system for painted surfaces, plywood, and metal.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
