Description: A two-component high solids aliphatic acrylic polyurethane coating which cures to a very hard, high gloss flexible coating with outstanding color retention. It builds a high film thickness in one coat and has excellent hiding power. It meets the VOC requirement for stationary sites. This coating has exceptional resistance to weathering and severe environment. Used for exterior or interior applications wherever a superior gloss and color retention finish is desired, such as storage tanks, structural steel, pipelines, production equipment and offshore platforms etc.

Recommended Uses: Permanent finish coat for most severe marine or industrial exposure.

Surface Preparation:
Prior to the application of this product ensure that the painted substrate is intact and free from contaminants. All damaged areas of primer and mid coats should be rectified and made good to ensure uniformity of system. All dust should be removed from the substrate by using clean brushes and /or dry compressed airline. Ensure that the substrate is completely dry prior to the application of this product. For added protection and embellishment additional coats may be applied.

Mixing Instructions:
Base to hardener 83:17 by volume. Power agitate base component to uniform consistency before combining, then again after combining. Do not vary proportions. The substrate temperature must be above 41F, the relative humidity should not be more than 85% during application and curing.
Temperature of the mixture of base and hardener during mixing and application should be above 59F, otherwise more solvents must be used to obtain application viscosity. This results in lower sag resistance and slower cure. Thinner should be added after mixing components.

Induction Time: None
Pot Life: 3 Hours at 75F
