Also, with a 2.1 lbs./gal. blended VOC, the new series meets current regulations in the U.S. and Canada in PPG target markets.

“This series of greatly improved primers is the result of new raw material technology we are utilizing at PPG,” said Steve Podlas, marketing manager for PPG Commercial Coatings. “We have completely redesigned both sides of the primer/hardener package in making the improvements. I believe our customers will notice and appreciate the enhanced nature of these primers very quickly, especially their adhesion and anti-corrosion qualities along with the generous recoat window.”

According to Podlas, the CRE-X21 Series primers offer higher film build capabilities and excellent sag resistance. The outstanding fill properties make the primers a superb choice for application over sandblasted profiles. They also provide a smoother appearance, allowing for a better finish appearance after the topcoat is applied.

The primers are offered in three standard colors – black, gray, and white – in addition to a tintable version. They are intended for use on trailers, cranes, service bodies, cryogenic equipment and a variety of other manufactured items, PPG said. The primers can be applied using conventional equipment, pressure pots, airless, air-assisted airless or electrostatic spray equipment.
