Universal PU Enamel
Universal PU Enamel All Colours And Finish is a polyurethane enamel that provides a hard wearing finish which offers great protection which when used externally has UV resistance. BS and RAL colours available in Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Matt Finishes.
Our Semi-gloss and matt finishes can be used as a one coat application to mild steel as they both contain anti-corrosive properties whereas a gloss finish does not. Semi-gloss and matt finishes are less durable and scratch resistant compared to a gloss.

Thinners required are White Spirit T0001. If thinning is required when applying by a brush or roller start by gradually adding 5% but do not thin more an 10% as the paint won’t cover
As our coatings are heavily pigmented separation can easily occur and you can have colour float, for example a green paint can seem blue before mixing, this is one of the reasons mixing your paint before use is essential.
