The application of a Clear Coat layer allows expands Snap-on's base-coat palette to include metallic colors. Each box is pre-treated and painted with ultra-tough powder-coat paint before the Clear Coat finish is applied. This allows the base color to remain intact under the toughest shop conditions. Clear Coat enhances performance with superior resistance to harsh chemicals, chipping, scratching and abrasion.
Moreover, because the topcoat is clear, minor wear is easy to refinish to keep the tool storage unit looking as good as new.
