Crystal Coat is specially designed as a color stabilizing, high gloss surface coating for Zero Rust Barrier Coat. When used over Zero Rust, it provides a non-yellowing, glossy finish with excellent UV protection. Used as a finish coat, it will extend the life of your Zero Rust paint job. Crystal Coat also provides oxidation protection when used on non-ferrous metals such as brass, bronze, copper, aluminum and chrome. It is resistant to many acidic and alkaline materials.
Zero Rust dries to touch in 30 minutes and is tack-free within one hour, depending on the relative humidity and temperature. The ideal window for Crystal Coat application is when Zero Rust becomes tack-free. If Zero Rust is allowed to dry too long after the dry-to-touch stage, wrinkling may occur. If this happens, Zero Rust will need to cure 6-7 days before application of Crystal Coat.
A 1.5 mil dry film thickness (dft) of Crystal Coat should be applied over Zero Rust. This translates to 2 coats at 3-4 mils wet film thickness or 3 light coats at 2-3 mils wet film thickness when applying thinned material.
Crystal Coat coverage is 9-10 square feet per 12 oz. aerosol.
