Trailercoat is a bright silver-color moisture-cured urethane coating that forms a moisture-proof barrier against rusting. It has excellent adhesion to rusty steel surfaces, and will penetrate and seal existing corrosion. Its adhesion to galvanized steel and to roughened stainless steel is equally good. Trailercoat contains aluminum flake pigment which forms a dense, water impervious barrier. The result is excellent corrosion protection. In addition, Trailercoat polyurethane chemistry offers tremendous adhesive strength and wetting ability. It is this combination that allows Trailercoat to perform well even when applied over rusted surfaces. Trailercoat is recommended anytime an easy to apply, effective anti-corrosive barrier coat is desired.
Trailercoat may be applied by brush, roller or spray. A minimum of two coats of Trailercoat is recommended to achieve good, long-term corrosion protection. Four or more coats of Trailercoat will yield excellent long-term results. Trailercoat can be left as is or coated with other paints.
Trailercoat reacts with ambient moisture. To avoid gelation of the paint, keep containers tightly sealed when not in use. Thinning is not normally required. Follow the recommended dry time and recoat guidelines carefully. Once fully cured, Trailercoat forms an extremely hard surface which is very difficult for other coatings to adhere to. If the dry to recoat time is exceeded, heavy sanding with 80-120 grit sandpaper is mandatory to achieve proper adhesion of subsequent coats of paint. To eliminate the labor of sanding, plan your work carefully so that each coat of Trailercoat and the first application of topcoat will be done before the previous coat dries hard.
Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate coating performance.
