C18 clearcoat is a product designed for smart repairs and bodyshops that have to quickly return the repaired vehicle. The use of raw materials of the latest generation allows the achievement of a very short hardening time. When using the clear coat with the fast hardener, the painted element is ready to be assembled after only 60 minutes (at 20 ° C)!


  • Short drying time / reduces the repair time
  • Very high solids content (VOC 355 g/l).
  • High final hardness and mechanical resistance.
  • Very high gloss
  • Excellent finish.


Acrylic clearcoats can be applied over:

  • Basecoats.
  • Old paint coatings in good condition after matting and degreasing.

Use according to the recommendations of the equipment manufacturer.
Wait about 10 minutes before starting IR drying.


1 liter of the mixture is enough to paint 10÷11 m2 of surface with a layer thickness of 60 μm.


Make sure you have covered all the surface with the clear coat. You should only shade the surface that has been covered and treated. Use InterTroton FADE OUT THINNER to clean any dust or dirt from the surface and to level out the optical gloss differences between the older and new applied coating.

Polishing and eliminating defects

Usually polishing is unnecessary, as the C18 VHS Clear Coat 2:1 gives the surface a perfect finish immediately after application. However, if some dirt inclusions appear, we recommend removing them and then polishing the surface with an abrasive compound.

General notes

- Do not exceed recommended doses of the hardener!
- The best repair results can be achieved by painting at room temperature. The temperature in the body shop and the temperature of the product should be similar. When working with 2K products, it is recommended to use personal protection equipment. Protect the eyes and airways.
- The rooms should be well ventilated.
- Clean the guns and equipment immediately after use.

Caution: To maintain safety, always follow the instructions given in the MSDS for the products.
