NEW HIGH-SOLIDS COATINGS FOR METALS

PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business has introduced Spectracron 380 poly-iothane HS (High-Solids) series coatings.These are two-component polyester polyurethane enamel coatings that provide excellent corrosion resistance when applied directly to metal or over primer-coated metal surfaces.

Designed for enhanced surface protection and durability in industrial and architectural environments, Spectracron 380 Poly-iothane HS coatings can be used for hydraulic pumps, trucks and trailer frames, water and gas meters, agricultural and construction equipment, and metal framing assemblies for commercial rooftop heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) units.

Scott Laney, PPG product manager, liquid coatings, said versatility is a major benefit of the coatings. “These products can be applied over cleaned and blasted steel or top-coated over surfaces that have not been sanded or abraded. They also can be used as clear coats to protect steel from oxidation prior to fabrication, which can preclude the need for phosphates and other chemical cleaners as metal goes through milling, stamping and coating.”

Spectracron 380 poly-iothane HS coatings are available in a broad range of glosses and standard and custom colors, including metallic and clear-coat finishes, and they withstand exposure to chemicals, abrasion and impact. The coatings can be applied using most conventional spray equipment, including air, airless, air-assisted and electrostatic tools.
