Featuring water-based polyurethane resin, fade-resistant pigments, and reflective glass spheres, CRC Reflective Spray Paints and Reflective Mining Paints are used to mark hazards or objects which need to be located in low-light or dark areas, such as fire hydrants, safety equipment, guard rails, electrical switch boxes, gas meters, and boat piers. Supplied in 16 oz and 20 oz aerosol cans, respectively, spray paints and mining paints must be applied over aluminum base coat for effectiveness. Read More
Establishing polymer coating that encases each fiber of material, EverShield DOR increases durability through complex, protective matrix. Environmentally friendly formula uses C6 chemistry and is also water-based with no VOCs. Unlike some DWRs, EverShield treated fabrics can be washed at standard temperatures: no super-heated wash or drying cycles are needed to maintain superhydrophobicity or oleophobicity. Product retains tensile strength, breathability, softness, and feel of original fabric. Read More
Used in manufacturing of LED lamps and lighting assemblies, Dow Corning® CI-2001 optimizes light output and efficiency while offering resistance to aging and UV light. White silicone coating features low viscosity of 1,500 cP which optimizes flow and fills in narrow gaps and spaces. Curing at room temperature to tough, resilient non-tacky surface, CI-2001 can be applied to large variety of substrates, such as polycarbonate, aluminum, and PMMA. Read More
Producing clear to light amber, hard, high-gloss finish, PyroCide™ Clear maintains appearance of original wood substrate while providing water and UV resistance. Zero-VOC product will not bubble, haze, or crack and can occasionally be wiped with damp cloth.
