Spartacote high-yield systemBethany, Conn.—Laticrete launched the Spartacote High-Yield system with patent-pending Lux Additive, an industry-first resinous coating system developed specifically to increase photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) reflectance of floor and walls by up to 56%, according to the company.

The system is designed as a complete grow room and greenhouse-specific high-performance coating system. It is the company’s first product targeting the rapidly developing market for the cannabis cultivation, indoor farming and controlled environment agriculture (CEA) industries. The product’s reflective technology aims to successfully lower energy consumption by helping to offset the cost of artificial lighting and to provide more complete exposure in the space to increase plant yield. It is designed to effectively increase the amount of light available for photosynthesis, the company added.

“Grow rooms and cannabis extraction facilities present unique challenges due to demanding regulations and require a hygienic environment that promotes healthy plant growth,” said Ben Lampi, product manager, Laticrete. “The Spartacote High-Yield system provides an innovative solution to this challenge in its ability to offer a rapid cure time, be easily cleaned and maintained due to its seamless application, a longer floor life and chemical resistance to washdowns and fertilizers. Best of all, the durable system helps growers reach higher productivity and save energy costs due to the unprecedented benefits provided by our Lux Additive.”

The new product is FDA and USDA compliant and comes with an optional non-slip traction additive, according to the company. Designed to provide versatile installation for horizontal and vertical applications for reflectance to the whole room, the system aims to offer rapid return to service to minimize downtime and interruption and to allow a quicker start to growing crops, the company said. Suitable substrates include concrete flooring, exterior rated plywood for flooring and walls, concrete masonry unit (CMU) walls and drywall, Laticrete said.
