PPG introduces two primers, expands Delfleet Evolution paint system

STRONGSVILLE, US: The PPG Industries’ commercial coatings group said that it has added F4921WH–2.1 White Epoxy Primer and F4921BK–2.1 Black Epoxy Primer to the popular Delfleet Evolution premium commercial paint system. Similar to the F4921 Gray Epoxy Primer PPG introduced in June 2015, F4921WH and F4921BK are compatible with Delfleet Evolution basecoats and single-stage topcoats.

The new primers are exceptionally versatile and can be matched with an array of substrates including aluminium, cold rolled steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, galvaneal, fiber glass and cured surfaces. F4921WH and F4921BK offer numerous practical qualities that make them a smart choice for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as well as repair shops.

The new primers offer superior adhesion and corrosion resistance and can be applied over bare metal as a protective layer or as a sealer over existing finishes. They are also fast-drying and can be topcoated as primer sealers in as little as 30 minutes, making them well suited for value-conscious collision centers. This primer is applied in a 3-to-1-to-1 mix ratio and lays down smoothly because of its thin film quality.

“Adding these two primers to the Delfleet Evolution brand makes our product lineup even more flexible,” said J J Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. “These are multipurpose high-quality primers with fast-drying characteristics that will help speed cycle times and productivity in shops of all sizes.”

As low-VOC (volatile organic compound) epoxy primers, F4921WH and F4921BK are compliant for all parts of the US and Canada. The PPG commercial coatings group offers a full range of coating technologies for the commercial transportation and light industrial markets, such as polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pretreatment chemicals and powder coatings.

PPG’s commercial coatings products are marketed under brand names such as the Delfleet Evolution, Delfleet Essential, Commercial Performance Coatings and AMERCOAT lines.
