SPECO THOMAS & VHT CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARY
In 2020 Speco Thomas is celebrating 50 years of VHT Distribution
The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Speco Thomas distributing the VHT range of aerosol paints in Australia.
Speco Thomas says VHT is widely accepted as the leading brand and product of its type as the “aerosol paint Australians reach for when manifolds, exhausts, blocks, wheels or calipers need a high temperature durable ceramic coating.”
Established in 1961 by the Sperex Corporation (USA), VHT reportedly pioneered high-temp coatings for NASA and many of its Aerospace suppliers in Southern California.
VHT “Flameproof” was originally used on space re-entry vehicles and later to mark ceramic tiles on the Space Shuttles as well as the B-2 Stealth Bomber.
Speco Thomas explains that by 1965, VHT was being used on every entry in the Indy 500. It says the hot rod industry and drag racing followed and today VHT products are widely used in the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, racing and restoring industries.
Key VHT products include VHT Flame Proof Coating; VHT Engine Enamel; VHT’s Caliper, Brake Drum and Rotor Coatings and VHT Vinyl Dye.
VHT’s complete line-up includes sandable primers, anodised colour coats, wheel paint, metallic engine enamels, Wrinkle Plus Coatings, Nite-Shades lens coatings, Case and Barrel paint for motorcycle engines, paints for hood, bumper and trim, roll bar and chassis. As such, Speco Thomas says VHT covers all of your needs for automotive exterior and interior dress-up applications.
Speco Thomas has been in business for more than 50 years and has been the sole distributor of VHT throughout Australia since 1970.
