PPG introduces new primer for heavy-duty equipment
The new primer provides extended overall corrosion protection, better performance on sharp laser-cut edges, and superior chip resistance compared to traditional two-component epoxy primers.

PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries (PPG) has introduced a patented polyurethane primer for use in heavy-duty equipment, general finishing and transportation applications, Spectracron AdvantEdge HPP primer.

The new primer provides extended overall corrosion protection, better performance on sharp laser-cut edges, and superior chip resistance compared to traditional two-component epoxy primers.

Because it incorporates proprietary resin and anticorrosion pigments and is formulated with no heavy metals, Spectracron AdvantEdge HPP primer offers customers a more sustainable solution for achieving superior corrosion resistance and sharp-edge performance. The new primer also offers compatibility with common hardeners, shorter wet-on-wet application time and a wide application window to help increase process efficiency.

"Overall, Spectracron AdvantEdge HPP primer helps our customers gain a competitive edge by providing exceptional performance in a heavy-metal-free formulation. It is an example of how PPG leverages its research and development expertise to meet our customers’ needs, providing them with an innovative sustainable alternative to traditional epoxy and polyurethane primers that also delivers enhanced protection for the toughest industry applications,” said Mike Kowalski, PPG products manager, industrial coatings.

Along with delivering excellent corrosion protection over steel and ferrous substrates, Spectracron AdvantEdge HPP primer is compatible with a wide array of pretreatment products and regimens. This is important to customers who use pretreated metals from third-party suppliers because it can help them make metal parts that are more uniform prior to finishing even when the quality and type of pretreatment varies. In turn, it also helps customers streamline their primer inventory, added Kowalski.
