PPG Commercial Coatings has introduced ALK28-901, a factory-packaged, 2.8 VOC alkyd enamel intended for general industrial use. The new black topcoat is economical, fast-drying, and suitable for trailers, metal fabrications, castings, cabinets, machinery, and heavy equipment.
“This is an excellent high-quality product for the value-conscious coating segment,” says Gillian Clarke, product manager, commercial coatings. “We’ve formulated ALK28-901 to be a versatile solution for a variety of industrial applications. It can be applied directly to metal, on select substrates, or over approved primers. In addition, its fast-dry characteristics and good water spot resistance can help increase production throughput. We believe ALK28-901 provides all the key attributes customers want in an efficient, high-quality topcoat.”
Clarke also points out that the topcoat has been designed as a thin film build product requiring just one or two coats. ALK28-901 can be applied using conventional, HVLP, airless, or air-assisted airless spray equipment and can be sprayed with or without reduction.
PPG Commercial Coatings offers a full range of coating technologies for the commercial transportation and light industrial markets, including polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pretreatment chemicals, and powder coatings. PPG Commercial Coatings products are marketed under several brand names including Delfleet Evolution, Delfleet Essential, and Commercial Performance Coatings.
