Description

DiamondFinish Clear Coat - Overview

Direct To Metal Clear Coat - DiamondFinish Clear
  • Formulated to Apply Directly Over Other Coatings or Direct To Metal (DTM)!
  • Permanent high solids (over 60%) and low VOC's Clear Coat.
  • Ideal for Direct To Metal (DTM) applications - No Additives Needed!
  • Apply directly to Painted Surfaces with Minimal Surface Prep.
  • Incredibly tough and hard like no other clear coat on the market.
  • Water clear high gloss clear coat remains permanently flexible and is able to perform in the toughest environments without yellowing, cracking or peeling.
  • Can be applied with a brush (without leaving any brush marks), roller and conventional spray gun.
  • Unlike normal two part coatings, no hardener is needed. You can just stir and go. DiamondFinish ClearCoat will cure without heat or UV lights in temperatures from 50° to 86° Fahrenheit.
  • Can be applied directly to a cured Automotive basecoat, Standard solid color paints, and Single Part or Two Part paints. It can also be applied to Non Ferrous metals including Aluminum, Alloys, Brass, Chrome and Copper.
  • Able to withstand the harshest of chemicals including fuels, solvents, Battery acid, Brake fluid, Ethanol, Methanol, MEK, Hydrochloric Acid, Fertilizers, and Acetone.
  • Graffiti Resistant: because of its chemical resistance, grafitti just won't stick and can be removed simply with a solvent soaked rag.
  • Great for high temperature automotive applications including the use on cylinder heads, engine blocks, brake components and even inlet manifolds, without yellowing up to 250° Fahrenheit.

Q: Can diamond finish clear be used over rust seal? I'm looking to use rust seal as a color base coat on some automotive components (steering rack, transmission, differential...etc) and use clear to provide the UV protective layer/topcoat

Asked by:  - 10/28/2013

A: We do not recommend putting DiamondFinish Clear over RustSeal because although DiamondFinish Clear is absolutely UV stable, DiamondFinish Clear does not block the UV rays from getting through to the RustSeal. Over an extended period of time, DiamondFinish Clear can delaminate from RustSeal when exposed to prolonged sunlight.

We always recommend a solid color UV stable top coat paint (such as BlackTop or KBS Maxx) over RustSeal if RustSeal will be exposed to sunlight.

Q: Does the clean diamond finish clear coat come in a matte or satin finish?

Asked by:  - 11/11/2013

A: At this time, the DiamondFinish Clear comes in a Gloss Finish. However, you can lightly sand the DiamondFinish Clear with steel wool after 24 hours to knock down the sheen.
