Gas Leo ( China - 2016 )

For Tianjin Southwest Maritime Ltd. appearance of their LPG ships has high priority, but can be hard to achieve in difficult areas with the use of traditional polyurethane topcoats. They chose Jotun's premium topcoat Hardtop AX.

Hardtop AX has excellent high build properties and very good sag resistance, and provides perfect results with only one coat – perfect for difficult areas.

The excellent application properties of Hardtop AX makes it perfect for yards, while the resulting perfect finish makes it a good choice for owners.
