PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS - RUBBER SHIELD® SPRAY
RUBBER Shield® is a revolutionary scratch- and fuel-resistant coating. It is designed for completed surfaces which have been pre-coated with RUBBERcomp® rubber paint. RUBBER Shield® efficiently covers and coats the rubber layer underneath. RUBBER Shield® remains flexible and springy, and does not crack or become brittle even in extreme weather conditions.
The hardness, scratch- and solvent-resistance of the RUBBER Shield® coating are comparable to the original 2-component varnishes used on cars. Tested and proven to work in temperatures ranging from -30°C to 90°C.
