The 838AR Total GroundTM Carbon Conductive Coating is a one-part durable acrylic lacquer pigmented with a highly conductive carbon powder. It utilizes a solvent based system with no heat cure necessary. The cured coating is smooth, hard, and abrasion resistant. It provides strong adhesion to plastics, good conductivity, excellent low frequency shielding, and strong corrosion resistance, even in marine environments.
