STEEL-IT Returns as Supporting Sponsor of the 2018 UTV World Championship
Protect your off-road vehicle and daily driver with STEEL-IT

The UTV World Championship today announced its extended partnership with STEEL-IT, manufacturer and distributor of a full line of specialized, high performance metallic coatings developed to protect a vehicle’s critical parts while also allowing repairs in the field.

STEEL-IT has been creating a lot of buzz in the industry and will be displaying and vending its full line of protective coatings at the massive Tech & Contingency on Thursday, April 5th and Friday, April 6th at the Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino. Each banded racer will receive a can of STEEL-IT as part of the UTV World Championship driver bag.

Top teams including Marc Burnett and Wayne & Kristen Matlock are using the STEEL-IT to protect their vehicle’s critical metal parts while also allowing repairs in the field. The polyurethane coating solves the shortcomings of raw steel to make it easy to spot cracks or fissures and powder coating parts to protect them from damage. STEEL-IT is packed full of 316L stainless steel micro flakes that are combined with additional anti-corrosive elements in a polyurethane resin. Unseen by the naked eye, the microscopic stainless steel flakes align on the surface to form a tightly overlapping, pure 316L stainless steel barrier wall. STEEL-IT Polyurethane provides a rugged barrier shield that also allows you to weld directly on the coating itself.

This stainless steel shield makes materials coated with STEEL-IT nearly impervious to rust and corrosive elements while providing a durable finish that holds up under the most challenging conditions. STEEL-IT is applied just like paint either from aerosol cans or by using standard spray equipment. The coating has a burnished stainless steel looking finish that doesn’t chip or flake.

“The time management dividends alone will pay for the cost of the product and more. We want to spend our time preparing for the races. Less prep, more pre-running!” commented Wayne Matlock. “We race in some of the harshest conditions imaginable and having a product like STEEL-IT that sprays on directly to our suspension components really makes a difference. After racing, the parts we coated with STEEL-IT still look brand new.”

It’s rare that a single product can provide solutions to so many different issues but STEEL-IT is the exception. Protection, appearance, simple application, fast repairs – the list of benefits is long.
