Overview page 1


Super Shield is a patented fluoropolymer space age coating designed to last many, many years without chalking, fading, cracking, peeling or allowing oxidation or discoloration or ultraviolet radiation damage of any kind to whatever it is applied to.


2 minute clip of founder-inventor describing test of his product on the Space Station:





Super Shield was tested on the International Space Station for 18 months. It was the ONLY coating to pass the US Navy's specifications of the 10 companies competing. Test samples "looked just as they had pre-flight. They received the same grades as they had initially. Comparable marks that were not coated were unreadable or faded to a point where you couldn't see the mark anymore." "Superior Shield exceeded our expectations. It is now our standard product for all government and commercial clear coat applications" , says Richard Perron, President of SYS-TEC."

Ipe, left unfinished, will weather to a "patina" gray color. Up until now, folks who want to preserve or enhance Ipe wood's rich, brown colors have used oil base coatings which require reapplication every 6-12 months (that's a lot of fun), or they upgraded to Sikkens which is costly, difficult to apply, and still has to be reapplied every 2 years. With both types you still have to clean the dirt, mold, mildew and algae off the finished deck. Not any more. Read why.





Super Shield applied to Ipe deck:


Super Shield will enhance and bring out the natural color of the substrate (material it is applied to) with a high gloss that makes it look wet. It enhances the natural colors and even brings back faded colors. It comes clear high gloss, semi-gloss, gloss, satin, and matte. It can be translucent tinted or solid colored. The factory will match your color sample.

Think that Sikkens is the best sealer/finish for Ipe? We believed that also for years... until now. Both Super Shield and Sikkens Cetol were applied to the Disney World paddle boat "Richard Irving" as a test for durability. For the next 6 months an average of 8,000 people a day marched over this walkway. 1,500,000 people later, this photo was taken. Sikkens? Darn near gone... like a '59 Cadillac. Super Shield? Still looks new. Which product do you want on your deck?


Want something more scientific? Read the Sikkens Abrasion Test Results and then compare to the Super Shield Abrasion Test Results. Super Shield proved to be nearly twice as durable as Sikkens in abrasion testing alone.

Before you go on to the next section, you should know that my firm has the know-how to design, build and seal a deck to look like Ipe, Mahogany, Teak or Redwood for a fraction of the cost of these woods... yet give you a deck that will retain its beauty for 10, 20, perhaps 30 years. Watch this 1 minute clip that illustrates how:


Better get a cup of coffee before you read this next section. It's gonna get you very excited.
