Permalac Original Formula

Permalac, unlike most other clear coatings, can be applied to most surfaces directly without the use of a primer. That is why we call it a Direct to Substrate (DTS) coating. You can apply Permalac to most metal, wood, or stone surfaces whether the surfaces are bare or painted on. On bare surfaces, Permalac behaves as both a sealer (in case you decide to paint over it), or as a top coat protecting it from UV, salt air, and other environmental corrosives. On metals, Permalac is also flexible. This means that Permalac stays with the metal and does not separate when the metal is bent. This is an important property for automotive and sheet metal applications. Permalac is a fast dry lacquer, formulated to provide tough, durable outdoor protection on any metal substrate. Permalac’s state-of-the-art UV and corrosion inhibitors, as well as wide-ranging temperature stabilizers, assures endurance in harshest conditions ranging from arctic freezing, to desert heat, to beachfront salt air to acid rain. Permalac also provides absolute protection for circuit breakers and other electrical components from molds and mildew. They simply won’t form on any surface that’s been coated with Permalac. As a result short-circuiting and other disruptive difficulties can be avoided.

In comparison testing on steel surfaces, Permalac outperformed all well-known exterior lacquers. A brass fitting protected by PERMALAC subjected to a blowtorch for 10 seconds will not discolor. Once Permalac protection has been applied, users can count on six to ten years of service or more before re-coating is required.

Permalac can be sprayed or brushed on. It air dries to the touch in less than 5 minutes and dries hard to a virtually indestructible finish in less than an hour. When retreatment is indicated, Permalac can be easily and completely removed by wiping the surface down with acetone. Permalac is available in either matte or satin finishes, in a variety of different sizes.

Coverage is 400 square feet per gallon.

Permalac EF, NT, and SR Formulas (Low/Ultra-Low VOC/Scratch-Resistant)

Permalac EF: Like the Original formula, Permalac EF is also a DTS coating. Permalac EF has only 170 grams of VOC/liter which is less than the 250 g/l mandated by California law. In laboratory and field testing, Permalac EF performs just as well as standard Permalac, without the strong odor! Permalac EF complies with most government regulations for interior use lacquer products. This makes it the ideal treatment for inside window and door frames and the decorative metal in commercial building lobbies and elevators. Permalac EF is available in either matte or satin finishes.

Coverage is 400 square feet per gallon.

Permalac NT: With under 70 g/l, Permalac NT is the next level of low VOC performance. This coating exhibits excellent durability combined with low order. Permalac NT provides excellent performance on steel, aluminum, brass, and bronze. Permalac NT is suitable for indoor and outdoor application and will pass LEED certification specs.

Permalac SR: Permalac SR is a one-part, clear, scratch-resistant top coat. This product meets California VOC guidelines. The SR should be applied over a minimum of 2 coats of either Permalac NT or Permalac Original. This product is available in satin or matte finishes.

Permalac Colors (Opaque & Transparent Varieties)

Permalac Colors consists of highly-tinted Permalac products. Permalac Original Black, Original Copper, and NT Copper offer total opacity for full substrate cover with a single coating. On the other hand, Permalac NT Bronze, Brass, Rose Gold, and Christmas Gold offer beautiful transparent finishes, lightly coating your substrate to allow for the underlining texture, whether on wood, metal, or stone, to still be revealed.

Available in Original and Low-VOC Formulations.

The finish created with Permalac Colors cannot be achieved with conventional paints. If you are looking for premium finishes without the “plasticky” look, Permalac is your best choice!

Coverage is 400 square feet per gallon.

“The product was infallible. Permalac not only acts as a fungicide that resists mold, it positively repels it. Mold simply can’t and won’t grow on it.”

Aside from protecting the carefully finished metal surface, Permalac has the advantage of being invisible. Unlike other lacquers it doesn’t give architectural coatings a plastic coated appearance and sheen.

“Permalac is extremely easy to use, cures in about 2 hours, and can be sprayed vertically or horizontally without drip formation. Permalac just melts into itself, but even if a texture did develop, we just spray a little more Permalac and we obtain that smooth-as-glass finish our customers require.”
