PPG Commercializes AEROCRON Electrocoat Primer for Aerospace Use

The electrocoat primer reduces primer weight for enhanced aircraft fuel economy, and eliminates worker overspray exposure.

Additionally, electrocoating provides uniform primer application, even in recessed areas, which results in excellent corrosion protection and durability. Only the amount of primer needed is deposited onto the metal surface, which results in the thinnest coating required and minimizes the weight of the finished part.
