Apellix, the safety partner for the technological revolution, is proud to announce that its Smart Bee™ aerial robot was named an Innovation of the Year award winner at the Materials Performance annual Readers’ Choice Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards. A software-controlled quadcopter (drone) that tests paint thickness on structures at heights up to 150’, the Smart Bee was selected by corrosion control professionals worldwide as the winner of the Computer Assisted DFT Measurement Drone in the testing category.

Recognizing the most timely and useful innovations in the field of corrosion control worldwide, the awards, sponsored by NACE International, are judged by a distinguished panel of corrosion experts who reviewed innovations developed by individuals, companies, and organizations from around the world.

The Smart Bee is the first commercial application from Apellix based on its patented software-controlled aerial robotics platform. It takes dry film thickness (DFT) measurements consistent with SSPC-PA2 standards featuring the Fischer Technology, Inc. DUALSCOPE FMP 40C system. The Smart Bee can record DFT measurements on surfaces up to 150’ above the ground, eliminating the need for scaffolding and cranes, keeping workers safely on the ground, and increasing productivity by 15x, all while automatically recording every measurement with the time, date, photo confirmation, and additional project data.

The Smart Bee is currently available on a limited basis to industry partners who will participate in development of future enhancements, including DFT Measurement on non-ferrous surfaces.

 

Apellix expects to release a beta version of its Worker Bee™ solution – a spray painting drone that can coat between 5,000 and 12,000 square feet per hour on elevated structures up to 100’ – to industry partners in Q4 2017. The company is also working with several construction engineering firms to develop additional applications of the aerial robotics platform.

About Apellix

Apellix, an early-stage software company based in Jacksonville, Florida, develops software and other tools to precisely control and allow its custom-built aerial robots to perform tasks that are otherwise dangerous or difficult for humans to perform.

Gripcrete 9000 PA Release 2-23

New Product Bulletin

PRODUCT RELEASE DATE: 2/23/2017

GripCrete 9000 PA OVERVIEW:

GripCrete 9000 PA is a high-solids polyaspartic developed for direct to concrete and primed concrete surfaces. This unique polyaspartic material has exceptional adhesion to marginally prepared surfaces because of unique viscosity and adhesion promoters. Its features epoxy type chemical resistance and tenacious adhesion while offering aliphatic polyurethane type protection to UV radiation. This new technology combines the work of three coatings; epoxy primer/ epoxy intermediate/polyurethane topcoat into one coat. This polyaspartic formulation will also have the unique ability to be tinted in the field to enable fast turn projects with unlimited color options. GripCrete 9000 PA will provide a high gloss finish. The material is VOC compliant and offer extended working times (up to one hour in low humidity environments) which is a vast increase from traditional polyaspartic offerings.

WHY WE DEVELOPED IT

GripCrete 9000 PA was developed to offer an alternative to polyurea and traditional polyaspartic floor coating. These coatings offer less than desirable results as working times and adhesion to prepped concrete has left the applicator with few options for fast turn projects. This material has superior application characteristics over competitor products while still providing excellent UV protection, chemical resistance, and same day return-to-service times.

KEY FEATURES

• Smooth, gloss finish

• 75% solids, VOC compliant

• SSPC Level 3 Paint 36 UV resistance performance

• Long working time (40-45 minutes)

• Resists forklift traffic

• Superior chemical and hot tire resistance

• Compliant for USDA applications

• Versatile usage for color quartz, vinyl flake, and metallic pigment applications

• Super fast return to service (2-4 hours for foot traffic)

WHERE DO I APPLY?

GripCrete 9000 PA is perfect for flooring applicators and owners who desire for a material with color matching capabilities and excellent adhesion to bare concrete or other hard to coat surfaces. It is excellent for commercial facilities seeking a solution for a low VOC, quick return to service floor coating that can hold up to consistent abuse from pedestrian traffic and forklift wear and tear.

Additionally, it can be used in most markets where a quick return to service (foot traffic) floor coating is desired. Combined with ease of application, adhesion to marginal prepared substrates, and fast return to service,

GripCrete 9000 is a product you can stand on.

TARGET MARKETS

• Industrial Facilities: Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, Oil and Gas, Marine, Conventional Power Plants, Waste Water

• Commercial buildings: Warehouses, Garages, Churches, Schools, Commercial Building, Breweries, Restaurants
