Tekton® 38 is an over paint-able anti-gravel coating with anti-corrosion and sound-deadening properties based on rubber and resins.

Gravel Guard is applied as an anti-gravel and anti-corrosion protection coating on bumpers, fenders, rocker panels, chassis of cars, trucks, and coaches.
Included in the Undercoating Kit: undercoating cans, RA1 spray gun and undercoating wand. Depending on the viscosity of the sprayed product, a thinner might have to be mixed in (consult product manufacturer for appropriate thinning agent). If product is hard to spray through the wand, shortening the wand might help.
How to Use Tekton® 38 Gravel Guard
Shake before use. The surfaces to be treated must be clean, dry, rust-, dust-and grease-free. Coating can be applied by means of an air mix pistol with an air pressure of 3-6 bar / 45 to 90 psi. Depending of the layer thickness, product should be paintable after about 60 to 90 minutes, with all conventional 2K-and base coat lacquers. When a 2K-lacquer is used we recommend to first use a thin layer of primer and to paint over after this layer has completely dried. If thicker layers are wanted, it is recommended to dry the layers in between. Optimum spraying distance is about 1 foot. Over-spray, or equipment contaminated with over-spray, must be cleaned while still wet with a solvent.
Storage and Shelf Life
The coating may not be stored under +10°C / 50°F and above +30°C / 85°F. The packaging must be protected from direct sunlight and heat. When stored in a cool, dry and well ventilated area, the product has a shelf life of 2 years in unopened, original packaging.
