Superlife-316 is a single component, water-based acrylic emulsion coating pigmented with alloy 316 stainless steel flake. It is non-flammable, low VOC, and offers superb exterior durability. It has excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance.
Superlife-316 DTMR, a liquid stainless steel coating that can be used as a direct to metal primer and/or topcoat on properly prepared steel, galvanized steel, tin, aluminum, and concrete. It can also be used as a topcoat over primed steel surfaces and most previously painted surfaces in corrosive atmospheres.
Superlife-316 DTMR can be used directly to the metal in an interior, dry applications. When used in exterior or wet applications a primer is required. Superlife-316 DTMR incorporates stainless steel with high quality; fast dry, flexible water-based acrylic resin to provide outstanding exterior durability. It is FDA and USDA accepted and is available in metallic gray and other metallic colors. VOC compliant.
Burke Industrial Coatings has manufactured water base stainless steel filled coatings since 1963. Our largest selling product at this writing is our Superlife-316 DTMR, which is used extensively by OEM’s in the production of packaging and processing equipment. Superlife-316 DTMR is a single component, stainless steel filled, fast dry coating. It can be used directly to the metal in applications where the product painted is going into a non-critical or dry atmosphere. If used in severe duty applications, we recommend the use of a primer before coating with DTMR. Superlife-316 DTMR has the ability to bite through some light grease or oil contaminants that may be on the surface, but, as always, we recommend a thorough cleaning of the parts to be painted.
DTMR is an offshoot of our Superlife-316® which has been used in industrial applications since 1965. The more we sold to OEM customers, the more the need for faster drying, quicker curing product became evident. OEM customers were looking for a water base, stainless steel coating that would withstand assembly or packing for shipment within minutes after painting. Since Superlife-316® is a fairly slow drying product and takes up to 10 days to fully cure, we began to look for component ingredients that would still give us the excellent exterior durability of Superlife-316® but with a faster dry and quick cure. The resultant product, DTMR, dries to touch in 15 to 20 minutes and reaches 90% of its full cure within 8 to 12 hours. Accelerated weathering tests indicate that the DTMR will also give exterior performance equal to or better than the original Superlife-316.
SuperLife-316™ Low VOC Gray paint with stainless steel additives has the ability to adhere to metal surfaces with a slight contamination of oils or greases.

Recommended Primers for SuperLife-316™: PrimeLock Low VOC Gray, Prime Solution 5250 Red/5253 Gray, Steel Plus Epoxy Primer
How to Apply Gray Stainless Steel for Galvanized Steel, Tin, Aluminum and Concrete:
Quality paint jobs occur with quality preparation, products, and application. Quality preparation includes cleaning the surface to be painted to remove all contaminants by washing with BC4000 or other suitable cleaners. Thoroughly cured old coatings may require scuff sanding for maximum adhesion.
