Additional Typical Characteristics of Armorflex 99f are, enhanced crack resistance, greater transfer efficiency and less overspray with low backside tack.

Available in both Spray and Brush grades, when applied correctly and backed with a Polynt Vinyl Ester Barrier or Skin Coat, Armorflex 99F will provide a durable, sag resistant coating system for Marine boat hulls. This gel coat comes ready to spray, needing only the addition of Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP)and is for use with airless or air assisted spray equipment.
