Andover, Kan. Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has introduced a new Chrome Hazard Free Epoxy Primer (CM0483790), which is a high performance, two-component, corrosion inhibitive epoxy primer. It provides outstanding sandability and provides Skydrol® resistance in addition to excellent adhesion to treated substrates.
This is also one the most flexible of chrome hazard free primers Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has introduced. This is a key product attribute because with typical aircraft bending, flexing, enlarging and contracting during flight, the flexibility of aircraft coatings are imperative. Recently submitted for AMS 3095 certification, new chrome hazard free CM0483790 primer meets all VOC regulations that require a 2.9 lb/gal (350 g/L) VOC primer in aircraft maintenance painting settings.
Another key benefit of the new Chrome Hazard Free Epoxy Primer is that it can be used as both a primer and/or a sanding surfacer.
In addition, this new primer designed to work with all Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings topcoats, so aircraft painters can get superior topcoat gloss hold out and increased productivity while delivering a very high square-foot of coverage per gallon.
