CougarShield’s state of the art water-based formulation is eco-friendly with no negative impact on the environment. Water-based products generally dries faster and produces no smell. Being water-bourne also provides better protection and a better resistance to weather elements. One of the key benefits of water-based products is that it penetrates better into the surface and at the same time, allowing the applied surface to breath; this usually translates to better durability and greater elasticity than solvent based counterparts. Effective drying of CougarShield™ coatings requires only good air flow (ventilation) and doesn’t require applicators to put on masks or any protective gear when applying.
