High Gloss Direct to Metal (DTM) Polyaspartic

Dual Cure 180

DualCure 180™ is a unique, patented high performance, direct to metal finish. Engineered to provide excellent exterior durability, flexibility and superior adhesion to blasted, primed or e-coated surfaces. This fast curing coating system is designed to provide superior performance and enhanced productivity without the need for heat for drying. DualCure™ 180 offers excellent long term protection in moderate environments. Resistant to fresh water, salt water, fumes and spills of mild chemicals. Abrasion and moisture resistant, DualCure™ finishes are our longest lasting most durable topcoats. DualCure™ 180 is recommended for commercial and industrial use on machinery, trailers, containers, implements, structures and vehicles. Great for applications where excellent color and gloss retention are expected and slick automotive like finishes are required.
