Automotive Undercoating and Steel Coating
Physical and Chemical Properties
Weight per Gallon->9 pounds 8 oz
Viscosity Brookfield No. 6 spindle @ 10RPM CPS->3000-6000
Flash Point PMCC ASTM D93, º F->105
Melting Point, º F, (Dry Film)->550
Metal Shield contains a low aromatic solvent with a flash point of 105º F or better. The solvent meets requirements of rule 443 and rule 66. The low aromatic content assures low reactivity of the solvent with other substrates.
Performance: Metal Shield meets MIL-C-83933A (MR) specifications.

Ultraviolet light studies have shown that Metal Shield is resistant to ultraviolet light degration. Most coatings will last only 48 to 72 hours in a QUV tester, Metal Shield showed no deterious effects after 500 hours.
