Spectrum Coatings Laboratories, a protective coatings supplier, has introduced a “greener” formulation of a high-performance, chemical- and corrosion-resistant epoxy primer for military and industrial applications.
Spectrum Coatings WE2K-720 is designed to provide a more environmentally-friendly coating solution for use on treated and untreated metal surfaces such as military vehicles, antennae and ground support equipment.
This new formulation meets South Coast Air Quality Management District regulations and has a lower volatile organic content (VOC) at 1.4 pounds per gallon than is currently required by the military specification.
The new epoxy primer is water-based, non-flammable and free of hazardous air pollutants. It is lead- and chromate-free and the company says it is easy to mix and spray, making it a sound choice for industrial and military uses.
