Cleveland, Ohio-based Sherwin-Williams has achieved Qualicoat Class 1 Normal Durable certification for its polyester TGIC-based powder coatings manufactured at the Arlington Powder Plant. Qualicoat Class 1 certification is given to products of high long-term value and consistent quality. The company is among the first in North America to earn this certification. Qualicoat certification is issued after a plant audit where the powder coatings are produced and a stringent battery of tests that include weathering, gloss retention, wet and dry adhesion, acidified corrosion resistance, thickness and impact analysis.
