Semi-Gloss Zinc Fortified Direct to Metal (DTM) Polyaspartic Finish

Dual Cure 182

Dual Cure 182™ is a patented high performance Direct to Metal coating system engineered to provide excellent exterior durability, adhesion and flexibility. This low-sheen protective coating may be applied to blasted, primed or e-coated surfaces. Dual Cure 182™ is a fast curing coating system and is designed to enhance productivity without the need for heat for drying. Additionally, this zinc-fortified formulation provides moderate corrosion resistance and protection in ISO 12944 (C2-C3) environments5 year. It is highly resistant to fresh and salt water, most chemicals, fumes and spills of mild acids and alkalies.
