Alkyd-urethane base coat for painting of metal and mineral surfaces, operated in urban and industrial environments.
BASA AU-164 Base Coat is a fast-drying, one-component urethane coating on the alkyd base containing anti-corrosion pigments. Features excellent gloss and color retention under the influence of atmospheric and climatic conditions. Used for painting metallic and non-metallic surfaces of industrial construction. Due to the use of anti-corrosion pigments it can be used as an independent coating.
