Cor-Ban® 12 is a transparent coating that is intended to protect aluminum substrates from mechanical damage during fabrication and assembly operations and protect the substrate from corrosion during transportation and storage of components under most conditions. The cured dry film is removable with a suitable alkaline wash process cleaner, such as Calla® 500, yet will withstand the exposure to outdoor elements.


Application of Product

Cor-Ban® 12 can be applied using a spray gun or brush. The dry time of the properly applied coating will be 10 minutes dry to touch, 5 hours dry to stack, and a complete cure in 7 days at 75°F (24°C) and 50% RH. The removal of the cured film can be accomplished with the spray application of Calla® 500. Apply Calla® 500 and let stand for approximately 15 minutes. Use a water rinse or pressure spray to remove the Cor-Ban® 12 coating and Calla® 500.



Cor-Ban® 12 offers a fast curing and durable temporary protective coating. The dried coating will allow for maximum see-through QC inspection as required. The coating is non-blocking and as such, will not allow paper or cloth to adhere to the finished film. Cor-Ban® 12 exhibits resistance to some solvents in addition to light acid water and salt mist. Cor-Ban® 12 is UV resistant and will continue to protect under intense UV exposure but will not change color or become difficult to remove.
