VR-514 Air Dry Phenolic

VR-514 is a thin film, air dry phenolic with excellent resistance to corrosive fume atmospheres and is particularly good in marine and salt air environments. VR-514 coatings are easy to apply and exhibit superior durability, excellent adhesion and good flexibility.

This primer-finish combination coating was recently reformulated for improved application properties and offers excellent durability, good adhesion with simple cleaning, good film building characteristics and flexibility. VR-514 is also perfect for smaller repair jobs on larger commercial rooftop units or a small residential do-it-yourself coil coating application.

VR-514 is available in an aerosol version (VR-514T) for those smaller “touch up” jobs such as Solder Joints, Finned Tube coil touch up, Fans, Duct Work, Copper Tubing and other maintenance projects.
