UltraTech 4001 Ultra-Ever Dry Top Coat, 1 quart, works with the Ultra-Ever Dry Bottom Coat (sold separately) to form the two-part Ultra-Ever Dry coating which helps repel water and oil from a coated surface, protecting against corrosion caused by moisture and keeping coated surfaces dry, clean, and free of ice. The top coat forms a thin coating that fills its own interstitial spaces with trapped air molecules to prevent water and oil from wetting the coated surface. This product must be applied over Ultra-Ever Dry Bottom Coat (sold separately) and according to the instructions to be effective. The two-part coating adds a translucent white color and matte finish to coated surfaces after curing. The Ultra-Ever Dry Top Coat uses a solvent called acetone to allow the active ingredients to be sprayed on for a thin, uniform coating. The top coat can help protect steel, aluminum, and other metals, as well as plastic, leather, fabric, wood, concrete, and many other materials. The two-part coating is non-flammable after application and suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
The two-part coating is classified as a superhydrophobic coating, as it exceeds 150 degrees of contact angle when measuring the sphere of a drop of water on the surface; this means that water, upon contacting the coated surface, forms very round beads which roll off quickly, without leaving the surface moist. It remains superhydrophobic for 30 cycles in a Taber abrasion tester with a CS-10 abrasive wheel. The two-part coating is also oleophobic, which means that it repels refined oil and many other hydrocarbons.
During the application and cleanup of Ultra-Ever Dry coatings, the use of a National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)-approved P100 half-face respirator with an organic vapor cartridge, safety glasses, and protective gloves is recommended. The two-part coating's durability varies depending on exposure to abrasion, UV rays, and other outdoors conditions; recoating with the top coat will help extend Ultra-Ever Dry's longevity.
