Kliar BX is a polyurethane-based e-coating and deposits an opaque, jet-black layer that hides any surface defects. Pieces treated with Kliar e-coating never lose the look, feel and sound of the metal that is at their core. Suitable for any conductive metal, e-coating is ideal for coloring or decorating all kinds of jewelry items. Pieces coated with e-coatings become hypoallergenic and tarnish-resistant.
The final coating, which can achieve thicknesses from 5–25µ, offers a medium gloss and can be used either a base coat primer, prior to a top coat, or as a final surface finish due to the visually appealing dark black color. The paint has a very high resistance to corrosion and UV light, while maintains a medium resistance to abrasion.
• Achievable thickness: 5-25 micron
• Coatings can wear thin over time, depending on how the coated jewelry is cared for and maintained, and may need to be re-applied.
• Normal shelf life of the coating solution is approx. 8 months. During storage, the nano-ceramic solution may thicken or develop small lumps. If this happens, simply filter the solution through a fine mesh before using.
