UV and Weather Protection

The System X® UV protection keeps paint, rubber, and plastic from aging. Surfaces look brilliant while preserving color. Tests: Extended Accelerated Weathering ASTM G154; Result: No color change.

Oxidation & Corrosion Resistant

System X® protects paint and metal from coming into contact with water and oxygen, preventing oxidation and corrosion. The ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test provides a controlled corrosive environment which has been utilized to produce relative corrosion resistance information for specimens of metals and coated metals exposed in a given test chamber.


Once cured, the coating provides protection from extreme temperatures ranging from -50 to 1400 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Chemical Resistance

The coating has outstanding resistance against damaging contaminants and harsh chemicals. The chemicals tested and conducted by SGS include: JIS K5400 Alkali, Acids, and Salt. This test method identifies how well the coating resists sodium carbonate, sulfuric acid, and sodium chloride despite heavy exposure. Result: 5% Na2CO3 for 24 hours: No visible damage, 5% H2SO4 for 24 hours: No visible damage, and 5% NaCl for 96 hours: No visible damage.

Characteristic Test Result
Gloss Level High
5% Salt Spray (ASTM B117) 350 hrs
Pencil Hardness (JIS 5400) Above 9H
Adhesion Cross-Cut Tape (ASTM D3359) 5b (no coating loss)
Mandrel Bend (ASTM D522) 0 mm coating loss at 180° rotation
Impact (ASTM D2794) 80/80 inch-lbs


System X® has proven to be a perfect coating for surfaces that are exposed to expansion and deformation evidenced by the Mandrel Bend Test (ASTM D522 test). This test is useful in evaluating the flexibility of coatings on substrates. Result: 0 mm of coating loss at 180° rotation.


In the coating industry, a products hardness or ability to resist scratches is determined by the pencil test. In the Pencil test conducted by SGS (JIS K5400), a coated panel is placed on a firm horizontal surface. The pencil is held firmly against the film at a 45° angle (pointed away from the operator) and pushed away from the operator in a 0.256-inch strokes. On a scale ranging from 6B (softest) to 9H (hardest), Strong has been tested and classified above 9H.

In the Impact resistance testing (ASTM D2794 test), coatings cured to substrates are subjected to damaging impacts. This test method for impact resistance is useful in predicting the performance of coatings and their ability to resist cracking caused by impacts. Result: 80/80 inch-pounds.


The ASTM D3359 Adhesion test covers procedures for assessing the adhesion of coating films to metallic substrates by applying and removing pressure-sensitive tape over cuts made in the film. Result: 5B (No coating loss when using strongest tape).

UV Protection

The UV protection keeps paint, rubber, and plastic from aging. Accelerated weathering via ARC testing determines color changes on surfaces exposed to UV rays. Result: No color change.


A cured layer of Diamond™ weighs just 1lb per 8500 ft2 treated. Xtreme™ weighs just 1lb per 420-4200 ft2 depending on thickness applied.

Gloss and Color

System X® boosts gloss and deepens color while preserving the shine of a surface treated.
