MT-1 was originally developed for the military as a high-grade clear coat rust inhibitor to offer extended protection in demanding conditions.

Yes, MT-1 is versatile and can be applied on a variety of surfaces including ferrous & non-ferrous metals, masonry, timber, fiberglass, glass, and carbon fiber.

MT-1 is typically clear, but colors can be added to make it a complete replacement for epoxy coatings, offering both protection and aesthetic appeal.

MT-1 dries within 90 minutes and fully cures in 5 hours. This ensures a quick application process and minimal downtime for the equipment or structure being coated.

Absolutely! MT-1 is fully compliant with California VOC requirements, making it environmentally friendly. Additionally, it's non-flammable and non-toxic.

MT-1 boasts superior bonding power, being 10 times more adhesive than many standard paints available on the market today. It even outperforms many epoxy paints in bonding efficacy.

Yes, MT-1 should be applied at temperatures between 100°C – 350°C. It's important not to apply the product if rain is expected within the next 12 hours or if the surface is wet. Always refer to the technical data for precise application conditions.

Before applying MT-1 on bare metal, conduct an SSPC-1 cleaning to ensure all contaminants are removed. Once this is completed, blast the area to achieve a near white metal finish and remove all grit and dust. The surface should be wiped with Isopropyl Alcohol until no residue is present. After preparation, MT-1 Primer can be applied following the recommended steps.
