    * Your customer is assured of accurate, even film build
  • Back priming (front, back, 2 edges and 2 ends)
    * Not practical with field application
  • Increases dimensional stability
  • Coating application production records
    * The builder/installler can verify the correct product is properly applied and at the recommended mil thickness
