TechKote WA2975 D3 Blackout Water-Based Chip-Resistant Coating



TechKote WA 2975 D3 is a flat, black, durable, water-based coating, for spray application to sheet metal, hot rolled steel, castings, forgings and extruded metal. It is a complete water-based coating designed to provide chip resistance and “blackout” properties even when applied at low film builds (2 – 5 mils). The coating is fast drying, can be air dried or force dried, and does not need high-temperature bake cycles. TechKote WA2975 D3 does not contribute significantly to VOC emissions nor does it contain any heavy metals.
