The commercial coatings group of PPG Industries' automotive refinish business has introduced DELFLEET® Evolution F4935, F4936 and F4937 HS Epoxy Primers, a new series of high-solids, 2.1 VOC (volatile organic compound) primers with excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance over many different substrates.
The new epoxy primers are identified as F4935 white, F4936 gray and F4937 black and are combined with Delfleet Evolution F4938 HS Epoxy Primer Hardener in a simple 1-to-1 mix ratio. With a VOC level of 2.1 pounds per gallon, the primers meet current requirements in key regulated (compliant) U.S. markets as well as Canada.
"These are extremely versatile epoxy primers that should be very attractive to the builder market," said J.J. Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. "We expect customers to be pleased with how well these primers perform, particularly since they can be applied over a wide range of commercial surfaces including steel, galvaneal, galvanized, stainless steel, aluminum, fiber glass and OEM finishes."
Wirth added that the new primers offer good vertical hang and film build properties with application versatility. They can be topcoated directly as primer sealers or, with additional coats, easily sanded as primer surfacers, increasing productivity and reducing process steps. Because the primers are available in white, gray and black, they can be used with a broad range of colors as well.
