Traditional heavy-duty protective coating systems typically utilize a 2K epoxy primer and acrylic urethane topcoat to achieve application and performance requirements that include corrosion resistance, weathering, pot life, cure time and chemical resistance. Valentus Specialty Chemicals has developed a breakthrough protective topcoat, VSC 1200 Topcoat, based on Eastman’s Tetrashield™ protective resin technology. The new 2K topcoat, when used in combination with the Valentus high performance epoxy primer, VSC 1100 Primer, delivers robust application characteristics and extended performance in harsh exterior environments, resulting in a signicant increase in weathering and corrosion resistance, outstanding adhesion, improved chemical resistance, and pro-longed durability.Key advantages include:

  • Faster dry to touch and through cure at low temperatures
  • Longer pot life with consistent viscosity
  • Extended eld coating life
VSC Coating Systems

The VSC Protective Coating System is the next generation solution delivering a wide window of application latitude for painting contractors and maintenance crews, and a lower total cost of ownership for asset owners.


VSCTM Cold Temp System

VSC 1200CT Topcoat is a two part (4:1) solvent based topcoat that is a hard, tough and extremely durable heavy duty industrial maintenance coating, and can be applied to cold surfaces and cured in cold environments as low as 35o F. To complete the Cold Temp System, we supply a primer by US Coatings called MasticGrip 2530. An Aluminum Epoxy high solids low VOC primer designed for low temperature application.

Recommended uses:

  • For use over properly prepared and primed steel, galvanized, aluminum, and poured concrete walls and ooring. Can be used over most previously primed and top coated substrates with minimal preparation.
  • This product is ideally suited for cold temperature brewery applications, or any other environment where cold application and drying is critical.
  • Recommended for use on interior & exterior structural steel, steel piping, storage tank exteriors, bridges, metal buildings, railings, conveyors, pumps & motors and other machinery.
  • Excellent performance in medium to heavy duty protective maintenance applications for most industrial & commercial environments.

VSCTM Polypropylene Pipe Coating System

VSC 1200PP Topcoat is a two part (4:1) solvent based topcoat that is a hard, tough and extremely durable heavy duty industrial maintenance coating, and performs very well over polypropylene pipe when used with VSC PP - Pipe Prime. Premium performance high solids, low VOC two component gloss urethane topcoat.

Recommended uses:

  • Designed for use over polypropylene pipe in conjunction with the VSC PP - Pipe Prime.
  • Also used over properly prepared and primed steel, galvanized, aluminum, and poured concrete walls and flooring. Can be used over most previously primed and top coated substrates with minimal preparation.
  • Recommended for use on polypropylene pipe, interior & exterior structural steel, steel piping, storage tank exteriors, bridges, metal buildings, railings, conveyors, pumps & motors and other machinery.
  • Excellent performance in medium to heavy duty protective maintenance applications for most industrial & commercial environments.
