Speedmask[R] 718 is readily applied and cures quickly when exposed to UV/Visible light forming a hard durable, protective covering on many surfaces, including nickel alloys and high temperature steel. It can then be cleanly removed from the substrate by incineration at over 650[degrees]C, leaving a light ash which can be readily disposed of.
The SSR is made from a special grade of high temperature steel alloy foil coated with a reforming catalyst.
