Tufcote LV HG Polyurethane Topcoats can be applied by brush, roller, or spray application for use on properly prepared machinery, structural steel, and other industrial applications. When mixed with Tufcote MX-5599 Polyurethane Activator, the coating offers exceptional durability and high-performance protection on ferrous metals, wood, concrete, and painted surfaces.
