USC 10 Universal Urethane Clearcoat
Give your projects a great finish and gloss with the USC 10 Universal Urethane Clearcoat.
Why is clearcoat necessary?
Clearcoat can provide your vehicle with the enhanced durability and an excellent glossy finish for the ultimate buff look. The clearcoat on your vehicle provides excellent ultraviolet rays protection. Sun rays are the primary cause for paint fades. Once the clearcoat has been applied, you can easily buff the shallow surface defects on your automobiles without harm to the paint. Automobile painters believe that clearcoat ensures easy maintenance and repair work on your vehicle.
How to best apply clearcoat?
Clearcoat should be applied only after the color paint is down. You can apply two coats, the first coat to flash to hand-stick before applying second coat. You can even opt for wet-on-wet ‘limited flash’ application by allowing a 2-5 minute flash between coats. Adjust air pressure to HVLP 8 -10 psi and Conventional 50-60 psi.
