Superlife-316U is a single package urethane, pigmented with 316 stainless steel flake. It features fast dry and good color retention. It is specially designed for high performance uses where hardness, flexibility, chemical and abrasion resistance are required.
Ideal for equipment and areas where a minimum of downtime is desired. Use on properly primed surfaces where long-term corrosion protection and good abrasion resistance is needed.
How to Apply Urethane Stainless Steel Coating Ready to Use:
For best results, the surface should be sandblasted to a commercial blast. If blasting is not possible, a power tool cleans the surface to remove dirt, loose paint, dust or rust. Wash the surface with BC-4000 cleaner to remove grease, oil or other contaminants.
Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 35° F and 120° F and the surface temperature is 5° above the dew point. Can be applied in temperatures below 35° F by using an oxygenated solvent as the thinner.
Recommended Primers: Prime Solution-5250 Red / 5253 Gray or any quality lacquer resistant primer.
