Compatible with the Sikkens’ Autowave and Autobase Plus systems, this low-bake clearcoat meets VOC (<250 gm/liter VOC, 2.0 lbs./gal.) regulations across all North American regions and performs well in virtually every temperature condition. A built-in flex additive also enables super easy application, excellent resistance to surface contamination and quick, dust-free dry times to help speed booth production.
