Primer is a paint product that allows
finishing paint to adhere much better than if it were used alone. For this
purpose, primer is specially designed to adhere to surfaces and to form a
binding layer that is better prepared to receive the paint.
have high performance properties including excellent resistance to salt, steam,
grease, oils, many coolants, solvents and general maintenance type machinery
fluids. They also have excellent film properties and resistance to
scratching, marring and chipping. The tile-like gloss and semi-gloss
finishes provide superior corrosion and abrasion resistance, while maintaining
excellent gloss and color retention on exterior exposures for long periods of
component high grade, alkyd type, enamel intended for use on primed exterior
and interior metals substrates. It is highly weather resistant and is
characterized by good color and gloss retention, good drying, freedom from
after-tack with good flexibility.
A two-part formulation
which is thoroughly mixed just before use. Epoxy finishes are extremely
hard and durable and excellent for demanding applications. They can be
used for protecting materials such as steel, aluminum and fiber glass. The paint
film dries to a brilliant gloss. The tile-like finish is smooth, easy to clean
and lasts for years under the most severe conditions.
Latex coatings are water-borne and
cure by evaporating water rather than solvents. They do not emit VOC's
into the atmosphere, eliminating the aromatic effects of solvents and making
them applicator-friendly when they are applied. They are composed of
pigments, resins, additives, and water. They may be mixed with acrylics and
vinyls. Latex coatings require a higher level of surface preparation to
assure the proper level of adhesion. Humidity can also affect the curing of the
coating. They have a low resistance to chemicals, solvents and abrasives.
Soap and water is the typical method of cleaning up latex coating material;
clean up does not require a solvent.
Two-component acrylic-epoxy coatings provide the
resistance to staining, yellowing and scuffing
of acrylic resins, combined with the toughness,
acid and alkali resistance of epoxies.
Their performance characteristics are almost
equal to those of polyester-epoxy solvent based
products and their stain-resistance is superior.
Zinc-rich coatings and primers have the unique ability to provide galvanic
protection to the steel surfaces to which they are applied. These coatings
have a large amount of metallic zinc dust combined with the binder. After
proper application of a zinc-rich coating to a steel substrate the binder holds
the zinc particles in contact with each other and the steel surface. This
contact between two dissimilar metals, when in the presence of an electrolyte,
will form a galvanic cell. The zinc particles become the anode in the
galvanic cell and the steel substrate serves as the cathode. Galvanic
action causes the zinc to be preferentially corroded while the steel is
protected from attack. Zinc-rich coatings are unique in that they provide
protection to the steel surface even at voids, scratches, pinholes and other
small defects in the coating system.
