Axalta, a global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is launching PercoTop CS388 SupraSand thick film epoxy primer for customers in Europe. The primer can be applied directly to metallic surfaces and is said to eliminate the need for fillers or electrocoat paints. PercoTop CS388 is said to reduce drying and sanding time by 50%, even when the film thickness used is higher than other epoxy primers. It is said to ensure excellent corrosion and moisture protection and is easy to apply using conventional spray equipment. Due to the shorter curing and baking time, customers work more efficiently and save energy. The thick film epoxy primer offers an ideal combination of protection and higher efficiency, making it ideal for use on commercial vehicles such as trailers, buses and trucks. Axalta offers a wide range of PercoTop products, including fillers, primers and base, top and clear coatings. They are designed to meet the needs of customers in the bus, trailer and construction segments. The user-friendly, efficient and reliable paint solutions are said to feature high-quality colour shades and superior performance properties.
