Protectakote WB

Protectakote WB (water-based) is a single pack solvent-free polyurethane coating which cures into an attractive, tough, textured anti-slip coating with excellent weather, chemical and abrasion resistance. A non-textured smooth version is also available for use as a protective coating or as a touch-up coating which will not alter the texture of existing textured applications. This water-based coating is non-flammable with a low odour which makes it safe for interior and exterior use.
