Hardtop XP is a two-pack aliphatic polyurethane topcoat with excellent gloss and colour retention. It is one of the most popular polyurethane topcoats because it combines high volume solids with very good application properties without compromising the gloss level and retention that can be expected from polyurethanes. Use as a glossy topcoat over most epoxy systems where a durable, weather resistant finish is required in a wide range of aggressive atmospheres.
- Good colour and gloss retention
- Nice flow properties, thus suitable for large structures
- Well suited for application with airless spray
- High solids
- Good application properties with low dry spray
- To be used as topcoat in atmospheric environments
