Golden Hard MSA Topcoat

Golden Hard MSA (Mineral Spirit Acrylic) Topcoat can be used over a wide variety of paints, including acrylic, oil, alkyd, egg tempera, watercolor, and casein. It dries to a tough, non-flexible protective finish. As a topcoat for acrylics, it provides a harder, lower tack surface than other topcoats and is much less susceptible to dirt and marring.

With the benefit of UVLS (ultraviolet light filters and stabilizers), this topcoat provides increased resistance to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, making it suitable for exterior as well as interior applications. For restoration purposes, the topcoat may be removed with aromatic solvents.

Golden Hard MSA Gloss Topcoat dries to a highly reflective finish. Hard MSA Satin Topcoat offers moderate reflection, similar to most matte topcoats. The Hard MSA Matte Topcoat finish is exceptionally flat. The different finishes can be intermixed or used sequentially to achieve the sheen you desire.

Golden MSA Solvent — Golden's MSA Solvent is the ideal solvent for thinning Golden MSA Topcoats, which must be thinned before use. MSA Solvent assures clear, clean, even application time after time. This solvent can also be used to remove an MSA topcoat at a later time for restoration purposes.
