Protective coatings have recently come into extensive use for preventing damage to car finishes and other exposed areas of cars in transit or in exterior storage. Fluid leakage and many airborne contaminants such as industrial wastes, insects and insecticides, and mineral residues contribute to this damage. Spray coatings are very effective against iron base fall-out and other solid soils but have a limited effect on other destructive deposits. This paper discusses the development of new coatings that give increased protection to paints and elastomers and which will be safer to use on incompletely cured finishes.
