The Commercial Coatings Division of PPG has launched EST900 DTM Chassis Black Topcoat, a key addition to the DELFLEET ESSENTIAL brand, giving customers a new choice for effective metal protection.
EST900, based on advanced technological polyurethane development, is a direct-to-metal 2.8 VOC chassis topcoat that does not require the use of a primer coat.
It can be applied over sanded cold rolled or blasted hot rolled steel surfaces and is formulated to effectively withstand common corrosion factors (such as repaired light truck frames being exposed to winter weather conditions) while at the same time, offering superior adhesion characteristics.
“With EST900 DTM Chassis Black Topcoat, PPG customers can enjoy two immediate benefits—enhanced productivity and reduced costs,” said Scott Colvin, PPG Product Manager, Commercial Transport.
“Eliminating the priming step reduces material and labour costs, as well as speeding up the entire coating process. In addition, EST900 offers exceptional resistance to corrosion and wear and utilizes the existing DELFLEET ESSENTIAL hardener and activators,” adds Colvin.
As a result, he notes that customers using the product can see very significant efficiency gains, especially in busy shops handling commercial vehicles.
Colvin also says that EST900’s resin-based technology also delivers superior protection from abrasive chemicals and corrosive solutions often found on Northern U.S. and Canadian roads including brine, road salt, grease and oil. As a 2.8 VOC chassis topcoat, EST900 is also compatible in all regions of the U.S. and Canada.
