RAPTOR dries as a hard satin gloss finish. It won’t attract dirt and is easy to clean.
On its own, RAPTOR is not skid resistant, or non-slip. For a non-skid surface on walkways, mix RAPTOR Anti-Slip-Additive (RLTR/SM) into to the final coat before applying.
Activated RAPTOR Black and Tintable are NOT isocyanate free because the hardener used does contain isocyanates.
The typical Shore D Hardness Value for fully cured RAPTOR of 85.
RAPTOR is a thick urethane coating and does not contain any rubber. The texture is controlled and created by the application. Lower air pressure gives a rougher texture, while higher air pressure gives a thick orange peel effect. Unlike most of the other DIY bed liners out there, RAPTOR is 2-part urethane product, which gives great UV stability and impact resistant without the use of additives like rubber.
100°C. At sustained temperatures above 100oC, some softening could occur.
RAPTOR can withstand some exposure to petrol. If the area will be submerged in petrol, RAPTOR should not be used, as there may be some surface softening from prolonged exposure.
RAPTOR is not an insulator. Some installers will apply RAPTOR on the exterior in White to deflect heat (simply because of colour). The temperature resistance of RAPTOR is -18°C to 100°C, so it's not recommended for application anywhere there could be excessive heat, like the motor or exhaust.
We have had some users apply RAPTOR as a sound dampener with success, but it has not been tested by U-POL.
RAPTOR is a water tight coating once fully cured and can be used for many marine applications. Let RAPTOR cure completely for approximately 72 hours before immersing in water.
RAPTOR will also hide a multitude of problems, like crazing, pitting and scratches. Sand the crazed gel coat with P100-P120 grit sandpaper before applying RAPTOR. First, repair the damaged gel coat with FIBRAL (FIB/2) or SMC bonding filler (SMCB/AL - black or SMCW/AL - white) to seal the surface.
Yes, RAPTOR can be applied to both steel and alloy wheels. The preparation is as follows: sand with P80-P180 grit, use ACID#8 Acid Etch Primer (ACID/AL) or epoxy primer over exposed bare metal, and apply.
