Epoxy Primer, Topcoat Suited for Weathering-Susceptible Substrates
Axalta Coating Systems’ Tufcote 5100 epoxy topcoat and Tufcote LV PR 5187 epoxy primer are said to be well-suited for use on surfaces that are susceptible to weathering and corrosion.
Part of its Tufcote LV HG alkyd and polyurethane coatings series, Axalta Coating Systems’ Tufcote 5100 epoxy topcoat and Tufcote LV PR 5187 epoxy primer are said to be well-suited for use in above-water conditions, on surfaces that are susceptible to weathering and corrosion, such as steel, wood, concrete, aluminum, fiberglass, storage tanks, machinery and piers.
The topcoat is a two-part, heavy-duty, thixotropic solvent-borne coating that is formulated with a volatile organic compound (VOC) level of 0.4 lb per gallon (50 g/l) to comply with stringent U.S. regulatory requirements. It is available in three colors and may be applied by spray application, brush or roller. The epoxy primer is a light grey, two-part primer that has a 0.8 lb per gallon (100 g/l) VOC level. It is recommended for use under the Tufcote LV HG epoxy topcoat to maximize chemical and abrasion resistance.
