Looking for a Matte Clearcoat Finish that is Durable
Hi everybody, I'm looking for a clearcoat out there that can give a good matte finish with very good durability to be sprayed over gold plated parts. The parts are used very heavily and this is a decorative finish so I need good adhesion and good durability! Thanks-EmacErik M [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

Hi, Emac. Well, you'd prefer one that can be sprayed, and if you review our Chemicals Directory you will find a number of good manufacturers of lacquers and clear coats. You can try a two-component automotive clearcoat.
But I think if you really need the thinnest, clearest, hardest surface possible you may need to employ something more exotic like an electrophoretic clearcoat rather than a sprayed one, or possibly a radiation cured or UV cured clearcoat. Good luck.
