Flooring faithful launched for DIY market

abe - abecote 337 packshotIn response to hardware retailers’ request for more user-friendly flooring products, a.b.e. Construction Chemicals – part of the Chryso Southern Africa Group – has re-launched two products which have proved hugely successful in the construction industry particularly for the DIY market.

Elrene Smuths, a.b.e.’s Product Manager: Retail, says abe.cote 337 tough epoxy paint, and abe.cote clear polyurethane coating, are now packaged in bright, attractive containers ideally suited to hardware store shelves. “With environmental concerns increasing among home-improvers, it is important to note both products are water-based and therefore less harmful to the environment than equivalent solvent-based systems,” Smuts states.
