|Generic Type||Advanced Thermoset Solution Fluoropolymer|
|Common Usage||A high-solids fluoropolymer coating that provides an ultra-durable metallic or pearlescent finish with user friendly application. It has outstanding color and gloss retention even in the most severe exposures. Under certain conditions, it may be used to restore aged fluoropolymer coil applied coatings. Contact Tnemec Technical Services or your local Tnemec representative for details.|
|Colors||Available in 42 standard colors. Refer to Tnemec Metallic Color Guide. Custom colors also available. Certain colors may require a clear topcoat for optimum performance. Note: Variations in appearance between product samples, color cards, color sheets and actual field applications should be expected due to differences in environmental conditions, color of underlying coats, gloss level, orientation of metallic pigment, equipment and applicator technique. Reference Technical bulletin No. 07-65 for more information.|
|Finish||Semi-gloss. Other gloss levels may be available, contact Tnemec.|
|Primers||Steel: Series 1, 20, 27, 66, L69, N69, 84, 90-97, 91-H20, 104, 135, L140, N140, 161, 394, 530
Galvanized Steel and Non-Ferrous Metal: Series 27, 66, L69, N69, 161
Note: Series 394 requires an intermediate coat prior to topcoating with Series 1078. Also, Series 104 or 135 exterior exposed more than two months, or Series L69, N69, 84, L140, or N140 exterior exposed more than three months must first be scarified or reprimed with themselves. Brush blasting with fine abrasive is the preferred method of scarification.
|Intermediate||Series 73, 1075 (Intermediate coat may be required for some applications, please contact Tnemec.) Note: If an intermediate coat is required, it should be in the same color family but noticeably different than the topcoat color. Tnemec will specify the intermediate color.
Note: When topcoating with Series 1078, the following maximum recoat times apply: Over 27, 66, 135 or 161, 14 days; over 1075 and itself, 30 days; over 90-97 or 73, 90 days.
|Topcoats||Series 1079-0762 (semi-gloss), 1079-0763 (satin)
Note: Series 1078 cannot be topcoated with Series 1079 (high gloss).
