Armor Garage's Newly Formulated Tiles Installed at Kyger Creek Power Station

SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2014) - The operators of the Kyger Creek coal fired power station, located in Cheshire, Ohio, selected Armor Garage's newly formulated floor tiles to resurface the turbine deck of their power station. The new Armor Garage product that was chosen for the Kyger Creek job is an interlocking PVC tile that is treated with a proprietary anti-stain additive called Armor Shield.

A spokesperson for Armor Garage said that the company has been working on the proprietary formula used in Armor Shield for the past four years. Armor Shield is a chemical compound that is injected into the tile during the molding process, making it effective throughout the entire tile. PVC tiles treated with Armor Shield add a glossy, slip-resistant surface that also helps to prevent stains, which is a big problem in coal fired power plants like the Kyger Creek facility. Armor Shield treated tiles are also self extinguishing making them virtually fireproof. 

In commenting on winning the Kyger Creek contract, owner of Armor Garage, James Olympios, said, "It is very gratifying when a customer recognizes the important differences that our products deliver and then chooses us for a job like the Kyger Creek power plant." He then added, "Our proprietary Armor Shield anti-stain additive will make traditional tile coatings obsolete both from a cost and performance perspective."

Approximately 45,000 square feet of Armor Garage PVC tiles were installed at the Kyger Creek power plant in less than two weeks. In addition to the fast and easy installation the Armor Shield treated flooring also saved the operators of the plant a significant amount of money. Compared to other options, such as an epoxy floor, Armor Garage tiles are a quarter of the price. They also carry a lifetime guarantee. Epoxy floors have a lifespan of approximately 10 years. 

As with all Armor Garage products, their Armor Shield treated PVC tiles have been thoroughly tested, made for heavy duty jobs and built to last a lifetime, which the operators of the Kyger Creek power plant obviously took into consideration when choosing the right product to use when their turbine deck needed to be resurfaced.
