PPG releases new commercial primers

PPG Commercial Coatings has added two new low VOC epoxy primers to its Delfleet Essential commercial paint system.

The new primers, ESU481 2.1 Epoxy Primer – White, and ESU482 2.1 Epoxy Primer – Black, are variations of ESU480, the popular gray 2.1 Epoxy Primer PPG introduced in the summer of 2015. The only difference is the primer color.

ESU481 and ESU482 are white and black thin film epoxy primers, respectively, that lay down easily with no sanding required. Both offer fast recoat time and quick-drying capability that calls for as little as 30 minutes before topcoating. They can be applied in a 4:1 mix ratio and have a four-hour potlife. In addition, their low 2.1 VOC makes them compliant for all regions of the U.S. and Canada, the company says.

“ESU481 and ESU482 are excellent multi-use commercial primers, perfect for collision centers that want to improve throughput and overall productivity,” says J.J. Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. “PPG customers that value quality and efficiency—as well as color choice—will want to look at these new additions to our Delfleet Essential brand.”
