Technical Information Model Paint Polyurethane Clear Lacquer
Model Paint Polyurethane Clear Coat is a special high gloss clear lacquer particularly resistant to fuels used in motorised models (aircraft, cars, ships). For application on many different surfaces - wood, metal, paper, glass, stone, coatable plastics (not polystyrene) or on existing paints which may not be sufficiently resistant to fuel (there might be a slight effect on the original colour by the clear lacquer's own colour).
For priming plastic parts on models, we recommend MODEL PAINT PLASTIC PRIMER.
