Clean Up

Dulux Epoxy Thinner


Durebild® STE is particuarly suitable for the maintenance of all types of previously painted substrates, including steel, due to its exceptional wetting and adhesion properties. Durebild® STE is used for the protection of all types of steel structures, particularly where surface preparation is limited to power tool cleaning methods. Durebild® STE does not need to be topcoated in internal environments as it is extremely durable and is available in Dulux Colour Specifier colours. Durebild® STE is also suitable for fresh and salt-water immersion when untinted.
