PPG introduces its Spectracron SPM Series DTM (direct-to-metal) monocoat, a one-component coating that helps prevent corrosion on heavy-duty, transportation, agricultural and construction equipment.

Spectracron SPM coating is engineered for direct application to pretreated metal substrates while providing corrosion resistance comparable to traditional two-component primer-topcoat systems. The high-solids, high-gloss formulation enables the coating to be applied over pretreatment chemistries such as iron-phosphate, zinc-phosphate and zirconium at supplier-recommended weights.

According to the company, the coating’s flash times and cure temperatures are similar to those commonly associated with current urethane topcoats, eliminating concerns about fast wet-on-wet application times and enabling the coating to work without constraints on existing paint lines.
