Wearlon® 722

Unique Properties

Wearlon® 722 System has been designed for high performance areas where hardness, chemical and abrasion resistance is required. The aliphatic backbone of Wearlon® 722 provides excellent UV resistance, which makes it particularly useful in exterior applications. One of the most outstanding features of Wearlon® 722 is its rapid hard-ness development. Wearlon® 722 is water borne and extremely tough even at depos-its of 1 to 2 mil dry film thickness.

Adhesion Properties

Wearlon® 722 primer has outstanding adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. However, on certain metal and special substrates, we suggest that proper sand blasting or anticorrosive coating be applied before Wearlon® 722 application.

Metal Plastic
Untreated Cold   Polycarbonates Excellent
Rolled Steel Excellent Vinyl Excellent
Bonderite 100 Excellent    
Bonderite 1000 Excellent    
Tin Plate Excellent    
Untreated Aluminum Excellent    
Anodized Aluminum Excellent    

All surfaces must be free of contaminates. For metal surfaces, a white metal blast is recommended. For concrete surfaces, blasting or blast-track will give the best results. For new concrete surfaces, a 5% acid wash is acceptable.

Formulating Guide

Flash rusting is seldom encountered with systems based on Wearlon® 722. However, unusually high humidity conditions may cause some problems. Ammonium benzoate, as well as other anti-flash rusting products available at local paint stores, is effective in eliminating flash rusting.


Available in clear or color.

CAUTION: Wearlon® surfaces have a low coefficient of friction and therefore tend to be slippery.
