Why MecoPremium

Conventional Coatings

Classic coatings consist of one layer. After 2 years of natural weathering the minimum retained gloss for RUV-3 coatings is 50% according to norm EN 1396. As UV resistance decreases with matt finishes, the minimum gloss level of these coatings is approx. 30 units.

Unlimited range of colours

MecoPremium coatings consist of two layers, a topcoat and a clearcoat. The topcoat (1) is available in any colour, whereas the clearcoat (2) is available in either a smooth polyester (PE) or structured polyurethane / polyamide (PU/PA) finish.
