QUAKER STATE INTRODUCES NEW WATER-BASED COMMERCIAL COATING

 OIL CITY, Pa., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Quaker State Corporation (NYSE: KSF) plans to market a new line of commercial coating products for use primarily by manufacturers of over-the-road tractor trailers, campers, mobile homes, recreational and farm and utility vehicles.
 The first product in the new line is called Commercial Coating 783. It is a zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) water-based asphalt emulsion that can be sprayed on without emitting any vapors.
 "The zero VOC feature makes this product especially attractive to manufacturing operations that are becoming subject to increasingly stringent air quality standards," said John F. Noel, specialty products marketing director. (Previously, all Quaker State coating products were formulated primarily for passenger car use.)
 Noel said, "The new Quaker State Commercial Coating 783 contains no asbestos or hydrocarbon solvents and emits no volatile organic vapors. It offers a high solids content of special fillers that protect and seal coated surface while providing both sound deadening and insulation characteristics."
 Quaker State Commercial Coating 783 is available in 55 gallon steel drums. It is normally applied by spraying with a 30:1 hydrostatic (airless type) pump and dries to a black matte finish. "The coating finish is tenacious and flexible over a wide range of temperatures," said Noel.
