Dr Koen Linsen, Axalta’s Product Manager for its Industrial Coatings business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), explains, “We constantly strive to strike a balance between a fantastic, durable coating and the various other demands required of it. With the introduction of these new products, we know our customers and end-users are getting environmentally-responsible coatings that will do their job perfectly.”

Corroless VOC Primer – High Performance 2K Waterbased Epoxy Primer

This 2K Waterbased Epoxy Primer is a VOC-free coating designed to offer high-corrosion protection – more than 1,000 hours in the salt spray test with impressive results. It can be overcoated with Axalta’s waterbased topcoats after 30 minutes at room temperature, which optimises throughput and energy costs. Thanks to its excellent filling properties, it is particularly suitable for use on blasted steel. The primer is very easy to apply and has very good sagging resistance. Parts can be assembled after 24 hours of drying. Spray guns only need to be cleaned with water.

PercoHyd 433 – 2K Waterborne Structure Topcoat

This 2K waterborne structure topcoat produces an even and homogeneous structure effect and can be used over all PercoTop and PercoHyd primers and fillers. It has a very low VOC content - <240g/l. Parts can be handled after three hours and can be assembled after 16 hours. For added flexibility, PercoHyd 433 is available in all RAL colours.

PercoTop CS306 – Chrome VI-free 2K Wash Primer

Formulated to be used on a variety of metallic substrates including stainless steel and sanded aluminium, this chromate-free wash primer provides exceptional corrosion protection. It can be overcoated with any PercoTop filler.
