VpCI-371 is a high temperature aluminum solvent-borne silicone coating that provides excellent corrosion resistance on metal substrates. VpCI-371 will dry tack free at room temperature in about 20 minutes to 5B hardness. After the coating has been heated it will have a 9H hardness.


  • Heat stability to 1200ºF (648.89ºC)
  • 600 hour salt spray resistance
  • 9H pencil hardness
  • 200 double rub MEK resistance with no effect
  • Brilliant aluminum appearance
  • No hard settling of aluminum
  • Heat resistance from 400-1200ºF (204-649ºC) for a prolonged period
  • Low VOC

Typical Application:

  • Automotive industry
