Can be used alone on metal or wood surfaces as a standard chassis black type paint, or as a vehicle for pigmented paints, including leafing aluminum.
Provides greater adhesion and flexibility than chassis black. Better chemical and corrosion resistance because of improved wetting of metal surfaces.
