Why Southern Polyurethanes?
Established in 1998, Southern Polyurethanes is a two-generation family-owned premium coatings manufacturer. Our goal is to provide you with the finest clears, primers, solvents and additives available today using only the best raw materials and latest technologies. We manufacture all our products in house in our Blairsville, GA facility so we know our products are comparable if not superior to any other coating in their class at any price in the automotive aftermarket.
Our Universal Clear has been featured on many world-class restorations include Pebble Beach Concours winners. Over the last two decades, thousands of rods, bikes and other restorations have been finished with this clear as well. Universal Clear is easy to spray, hard to run and buffs easy even months after application.
We are open and shipping!
Some areas are only allowing essential items to be shipped freight, but so far ground service is allowed nationwide, even to California.

Label and Logo Changes
As of August 2019 we are a little more than 4 months into our Rebranding process. The new logos and Speed Clear label design are the result of this. All of our product labels will be changing, with the 2.1 VOC clears and activators being first in line. The products themselves have not changed at all! The website will see a redesign toward the end of the year or beginning of 2020.
