PPG’s Aquacron 834 is a water-based industrial shop primer designed to inhibit rust in steel applications. Its quick-dry formula uses water for reduction and clean-up.  With volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of only 2.8 lbs per gallon, the primer meets stringent environmental regulations while delivering robust protection in corrosive environments, the company says. It also provides excellent flow and leveling characteristics to create a smooth finish for steel fabrication, automotive racking, waste containers, industrial machinery, material-handling equipment and other metal applications. 

It can be made in a variety of colors, and is said to work well with PPG’s Aquacron 488, Aquacron 880 and Aquacron 890 Series topcoats.
