Elite Polyurethane

Features:

Elite Polyurethane is based on the latest aliphatic urethane technology, giving a light fast finish coat with long lasting gloss.

  • Elite Polyurethane excels in marine applications, providing the maximum gloss and colour retention, as well as resistance to moderate-severe corrosive environments.
  • Elite Polyurethane is recommended for use on all topsides, decks, interiors and fittings requiring a premium quality finish.
  • Elite Polyurethane also has excellent performance in areas such as showers, heads and galleys.

    Limitations of Use:
  • Elite Polyurethane is available in a wide range of colours with varying degrees of opacity. Whites and pastel shades will generally yield full colour coatings after applying one or two coats at the recommended thickness.
  • Deep tone shades are invariably based on transparent or semi-transparent pigments – such colours will require careful selection of correct undercoat tone and will often require several separate discrete coats before full colour opacity is achieved. 
  • Application of multi-coats of deep tone colours requires careful observation of minimum and maximum recoat times – coat to coat – and may also require light sanding between coats. Refer “Dry Time – Self recoat”

Advantages:

  • Outstanding cosmetic properties
  • Exceptional wet look gloss
  • Exceptional depth of colour
  • Excellent chemical resistance – colour pigments may be affected to varying degrees. Note: This high degree of chemical resistance dictates the need for careful observation of recoat times and / or intercoat preparation where multiple coats are applied. Refer to “Limitations of use” and “Dry Time – Self Recoat”
  • Excellent durability
  • High flexibility and toughness
  • Improved retention of cosmetic properties due to high UV resistance
  • Lead and chromate free
