Series 1081 | Endura-Shield

Generic Type Waterborne Acrylic Polyurethane
Common Usage A waterborne polyurethane coating that provides excellent abrasion resistance and color and gloss retention for exterior applications to steel, concrete and other miscellaneous substrates. It features low VOC content, low odor, semi-gloss finish and easy cleanup.
Colors Refer to Tnemec Color Guide. Note: Certain colors may require multiple coats depending on method of application and finish coat color. When feasible, the preceding coat should be in the same color family, but noticeably different.
Finish Semi-Gloss - Note: Final gloss level of topcoat can vary depending on number of coats applied. One coat will generally result in a lower sheen than two coats of the material.
Primers Steel: Series 20, 22, 27, 27WB, 66, N69, N69F, L69, L69F, V69, V69F, 84, 104, 115, 135, L140, L140F, N140, N140F, V140, V140F, 141, 161, 287
Non-Ferrous Metal: Series 66, L69, L69F, N69, N69F, V69, V69F, 115, 135, 161
Concrete: Series 20, 66, N69, N69F, L69, L69F, V69, V69F, 84, 104, 141, 161, 270, 273, 280, 287, 1254
CMU: L69, L69F, N69, N69F, V69, V69F, 130, 1254. Intermediate coat required (any of the above primers for concrete).

Note: Epoxy primers exterior exposed for more than 30 days require an epoxy intermediate coat or scarification prior to topcoating with Series 1081. A minimum recoat of 24 hours at 75°F (24°C) applies when using Series 27WB. Reference the Series 27WB product data sheet for additional cure information. More than one finish coat of Series 1081 is required when used over Series 27WB to achieve uniform and desired gloss level.
