FT-6160 Primer FreedomTuff 6160- Product Data Sheet
FT-2216 Polyurea Freedom Tuff 2216- Product Data Sheet

Solution: Gensler selected Freedom Chemical’s Guardian-PD to provide long lasting protection for the building, including 125,000sqft of Guardian-PD system from Freedom Chemical. The combination of the products used provided excellent thermal stability; abrasion and chemical resistance; and durable installations with no odor, which was ideal for the facility. For example, Freedom Chemical’s Freedom Tuff 6160 is a two component 100% solids epoxy primer designed to treat new and existing concrete, masonry and wood. Freedom Chemical’s Freedom Tuff 2216 is a fast setting, rapid curing, two-component modified aromatic spray polyurea, used as a general-purpose protective coating, that is flexible, abrasion, and impact resistant.

Challenge: During the process of spraying the coating, a total refacing of the building was conducted. Speed of application with 5 man crew vs 10 men crew allowed other trades to work at the same time. The advantages of using the Guardian-PD system from Freedom Chemical, allows for no protection board and faster processes. This was all during the Covid pandemic which involved increased safety measures.


The FreedomTuff® product line is a revelation of what Polyureas, Polyurethanes, Polyaspartics and Epoxies are about. When so many products have been “made” for maximum impact, at Freedom® Chemical Corporation we’ve been content to let our products speak quietly. No need to shout when you have something special to say.
