Automotive lighting, both OEM and aftermarket, encompasses a broad spectrum of lighting including headlights, taillights, running lights, beacons and even spotlights. These lights are most often exposed to the full force of the elements on the exterior of the vehicle with little more than a plastic cover to shield them.

Product code: Part A Code*: 2K5005L
2K500 is a hard, two-part polyurethane conformal coating system which provides the protection properties of an encapsulation resin, with the ease of application of a conformal coating and without the use of harmful solvents. It can be easily applied to provide excellent coverage, even areas with difficult geometries and maintains clarity even after prolonged exposure to UV light.
It is more abrasion resistant than 2K100 or 2K300 and has a wider operating temperature range providing protection for electronics exposed to temperature over a long period of time, as well as providing excellent thermal shock resistance.
2K500 is applied using selective coating machines from PVA (using the specially adapted part VPX-2KS) and Nordson Asymtek (using the latest in the AM range).
*Two Part System requires 2K500 as Part A and 2KPB01L as Part B, please refer to the product TDS for recommended mix ratios.
