Desothane® HD 9008 SR Solar Reflective Basecoat

Desothane® HD 9008 SR Solar Reflective basecoat is formulated to reduce solar heating associated with dark topcoats by being transparent to the near IR portion of the solar radiation spectrum. To obtain the solar reflective properties, Desothane® HD 9008 SR Solar Reflective basecoat needs to be applied over Desoprime™ white epoxy primer or Desothane® HD 9008 white basecoat. This system allows airlines and operators the option of using dark colors for customized liveries or paint schemes. Desothane® HD 9008 SR Solar Reflective basecoats are part of a basecoat clearcoat system and requires the use of Desothane® HD 9008/B900D Clearcoat. The completed (BCCC) basecoat / clearcoat system provides extended service life, improved buffability, and a smooth, easy to clean surface.
