CorrolessVOC 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.
