New CLEARLOK MAX Topcoat from Birchwood Casey



CLEARLOK MAX Topcoat is another finishing first from Birchwood Casey, the company said. New CLEARLOK MAX Topcoat is a water-based blend of acrylic polymers that forms a scuff resistant clear coat finish on all metal surfaces.

"What's unique about this finish is its densely packed polymer structure that forms a tightly adherent barrier against corrosion while enhancing the beauty and durability of the surface," said a company spokesperson. "With these properties, the finish serves as a suitable topcoat for black oxide or other surface coatings such as phosphates and antique finishes. It can also be applied directly to clean or shot-blasted metal surfaces such are bare steel, aluminum, nickel and zinc plating."

Supplied as a liquid concentrate, CLEARLOK MAX Topcoat is pH neutral and non-hazardous and is safe to apply without ventilation. The concentrate is diluted with water, applied to parts by immersion, then dried at 70-130 degrees F, achieving a nominal film thickness of about .002 inches. Once dry to the touch, the parts are ready for assembly or packaging. Full hardness is achieved in about 24 hours.

Minimum humidity resistance is 400 hours (ASTM D1748), depending on film thickness. For severe duty applications requiring extra corrosion resistance, the dried CLEARLOK MAX finish can be sealed with DRI TOUCH Rust Inhibitor, to create an even more impervious barrier against humidity and corrosion, the company said.

Typical CLEARLOK MAX applications include all types of hand tools, machine components, power transmission components, pumps, valves and oilfield equipment.
