PPG INDUSTRIES: Epoxy Primer
F4921 is a new epoxy primer in this company’s DELFLEET® Evolution commercial paint system. The 2.1-VOC (volatile organic compound) gray primer can reportedly be applied to a range of substrates, such as cold rolled steel, aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, galvaneal, fiberglass and cured surfaces. The fast-drying epoxy can be topcoated as a primer sealer in as little as 30 min, making it a high-value choice for production-conscious collision centers. The primer also offers superior adhesion and corrosion resistance, which makes it useful for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and repair shops. It can be applied over bare metal as a protective layer or as a sealer over existing finishes.
“F4921 is an outstanding addition to the Delfleet Evolution product lineup,” said J.J. Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. “Our customers have asked for a multipurpose, high-quality primer, and we are very happy to respond with this advanced product. Its fast-drying characteristics will help speed cycle times and productivity in shops of all sizes. All in all, F4921 is a smart choice for PPG customers.” Wirth added that F4921’s low 2.1-VOC rating makes it compliant for all parts of the U.S. and Canada. The primer is applied in a 3-to-1-to-1 mix ratio and lays down smoothly because of its thin film quality, she added.
