Peelable Latex Coating for Spray Booths

Q. We have been using Evercoat's Peelable Floor Coating on our paint booth floors for years. They have discontinued the product. Do you know of any other product that can be rolled on and peeled off when the time comes to remove the coating? I have a heavy duty truck refinish facility. The booths have epoxy coated floors now and the peelable coating was on top of the epoxy coating. We have used the floor covering that comes in a roll in the past and like the rollable laytex product the best. It is easy to patch when torn.

A. If you go to the search engines and enter "peelable coating" you will find several suppliers. I do most of my work with the military (Army, Navy and Air Force) where they drive aircraft, tanks, etc. into their spray booths. For the most part they do not use a strippable coating, but rather lay a light colored (usually white) heavy duty spray booth paper on the floor. This appears to last for many spray paint jobs.

The distributer that many military facilities purchase their supplies from is Fluid Air Products, and my contact person is Bob Hunt:
