Permalac is a clear air-dry lacquer that is designed for exterior protection of surfaces of steel, aluminum, copper, silver and bronze at higher temperatures. Permalac contains inhibitors for UV and corrosion protection. It has been found that even a blow torch could not discolor a brass fitting protected by Permalac! In a recent field test, Permalac outperformed 6 other coatings including Syncrylac in protecting steel surfaces. It should give satisfactory exterior protection for at least ten years under normal conditions. Considerably longer life is expected. For brush application, it is ready to use. For spray application thin with #281thinner. Permalac air dries to the touch in less than 5 minutes; may be force dried faster at 250 F. Air dries hard in an hour or so, depending on the film thickness, temperature etc.   Click here Testimonials, Technical data and to ORDER ONLINE
