Protective Textured Coating

Hardhead Protective Textured Coating is a two-component urethane coating with excellent adhesion to bare steel and sanded OEM paint. It is specially formulated to withstand the same extreme conditions as high-solids single-stage paint. MFI-8000 SERIES has excellent UV and chemical resistance. It is easy to use and provides a textured, satin finish that makes any surface look brand new. It is available in Black (MFI-8000), White (MFI-8003) and Tintable (MFI-8005). V.O.C. compliant in North America.

Note: Mix by volume and stir thoroughly. Make sure product is at room temperature (72°F/22°C) before mixing. Potlife is 60 minutes @72°F, 50% RH.

Spray: Using a schutz gun apply a uniform wet coat of texture coating using a sweeping motion. Allow first coat to flash about 2-5 minutes before applying the second (2nd) coat. Second coat should be applied at a higher pressure (80 psi) and a distance further from the panel using a fast sweeping motion. NOTE: Varying the spraying distance and air pressure will vary the texture. Spraying a test panel is recommended. Industrial Texture Coating should only be applied when the temperature is between 60 – 85°F and humidity is less than 70%. DO NOT APPLY IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

Roll-on: MFI-8000 Series can be applied with a foam roller. A minimum of two applications are required to achieve minimum coverage.
