This two-coat system, using our high-performance primer, provides exceptional durability and offers superior resistance to moisture and UV exposure, with excellent flexibility and abrasion resistance. The unique and highly-durable topcoat provides the best color stability and gloss retention of any SMP product.
Only the best pigments are used
It is well known throughout the coatings industry that use of the right pigment combination is critical in formulating a finish that will resist color fade. Only ceramic and select inorganic pigments are used in CERAM-A-STAR 1050 finishes to ensure years of durability.
Ceramic and select inorganic pigments are recognized as the most durable, having proven their performance in hundreds of years of use in porcelain and ceramic products. Other types of pigments may be portrayed as being durable, but none can offer the same long term performance as ceramic and select inorganic pigmentation. They deliver many years of superior weatherability and resistance to color change.
