PPG’s commercial coatings division has added F4943 2.1 VOC Fast Dry Urethane Sealer to its Delfleet Evolution brand lineup.
Formulated through PPG’s urethane technology, the new sealer is lead- and chromate-free and fully compatible with all Delfleet Evolution primers, the company says. A 2.1 VOC rating makes the sealer compliant for all parts of the United States and Canada.
“PPG is pleased to offer F4943 to our customers. This is an excellent sealer that has surpassed our own high expectations,” says Scott Colvin, PPG product manager, commercial transport. “We originally developed F4943 as a small-repair product; then we saw that its melt-in properties and gloss retention characteristics were so effective that we realized it was suitable for larger repairs as well. Shops that are interested in reducing refinish time and boosting throughput should find this new sealer a welcome addition to their process.”
According to PPG, F4943 has been designed to provide excellent gloss holdout and fast dry times. It can be topcoated in as little as 15 minutes, making it particularly appropriate for production-focused fleet refinishers. The advanced sealer also has an improved pot life of up to three hours and a recoat window extending to three days, the company says.
Colvin also points out the new sealer lays down smooth and blends in well with coatings layered over it, all the while maintaining good color retention. F4943 works with Delfleet Evolution’s existing F4933 Fast Dry Hardener and is available in black, white and gray.
