1. A peelable surface coating system comprising:(A) a multi-section substrate with joints between sections;
(B) a multilayer peelable surface coating comprising:
(1) a plurality of strength and flexibility layers (S&FL) comprising at least one member selected from the group consisting of polyurethane, polybutadiene, polyisoprene, ethylene/propylene/diene terpolymer, polysiloxane, polyester, polyamide, polyurea, and polyether, each of the strength and flexibility layers exhibiting an average Konig hardness value of less than 40 seconds, each of the strength and flexibility layers having an average thickness of less than 0.6 mil, with the plurality of strength and flexibility layers having an average combined total post-peel thickness of from 3.3 mils to 6 mils; and
(2) a wear layer comprising at least one member selected from the group consisting of polyurethane, acrylic polymer, polysiloxane, polysilazane, polyester, polyamide, polyurea, and epoxy polymer, the wear layer exhibiting an average Konig hardness value of at least 60 seconds, the wear layer having an post-peel average thickness of from 0.2 mil to 3 mils; and
wherein the peelable surface coating system spans the joints between the sections and is peelable from both the substrate and the joints between the substrate sections, the strength and flexibility layers being between the wear layer and the substrate, with the peelable surface coating having a post-peel average percent elongation (E) of at least 350%, a post-peel average break force maximum load (BF) of at least 3000 gm-Force, and an post-peel average total thickness (T) of from 3.5 to 10 mils, and wherein:
(E %)×(BF gm-Force)×(T mils)>4×106.
