Microshield Premium Varnish by
Varnish combines the
latest values in UV
inhibitors and stabilisers,
with the best blend of
premium resins to give
the user maximum
performance in a clear
How does this work?
The UV inhibitors soak up the sun’s rays,
converting them into heat and then provide for
their egress, through dissipation within the film.
The stabilisers protect the coating by rendering
the “free radicals” of UV inert and neutralising
them. Then they regenerate themselves and
proceed to continue the protecting process
throughout the coatings life.
The balance of selected resins offers
excellent flexibility to reduce brittleness
and extends the lifespan of the coating, at
the same time maintaining a tough abrasion
resistant clear gloss. Microshield is also a low
odour coating when used internally on doors
and panelling. Application by brush and/or
mohair roller provides superb gloss and flow
Microshield Premium Varnish is available
in 10L, 4L, 2L, 1L and 500mls.
