MULTI-WHEEL DTM CLEAR is a specially formulated clearcoat for use on metals and in some cases plastics. We have found that during testing this clearcoat has great adhesion to headlight and tail lights. This is due to the type of resins used durig the manufacturing process that creates a good level of adhesion.
Unlike other 'DTM' clearcoats on the market this clear is actually formulated using special resins that have been labratory tested on various metals and plastics for adhesion.
Due to the solid content of this clearcoat it means that we was unable to make this a 2:1 clear but instead made it a 3:1 mix with HS Hardener. This was to keep the solid content high and reduce the solvent content. This clearcoat is extreamly durable and can be used in many different applications. Anywhere were durability is needed but high gloss such as Alloy wheels, headlights and taillights or even door handles.
up to 10% may be added for certain applications. Try adjusting spraying equipment first. This is a thick clear.
This clear is best used on the below substrates:
Cold rolled steel
Zinc plated steel
Specifically good on ABS and PVC
Not recomended on PP/Talc, PE or PP/EPDM
It is always best to try out a sample and test for adhesion yourself. This can be done by applying the clear and baking leaving it a day to cool and finish curing and using a blade to cross hatch the clear and apply tape and remove.
As with all DTM clears, this does not provide any anti- corrosive properties. This works by creating a barrier effect over the substrate to stop the metal from oxidizing.
Sizes available: 1.5L, 7.5L
