Tikkurila launches a new high-performance all-seasons epoxy primer for Protective Coatings

20.06.2018 09:00

Temacoat HS-F Primer, the newest addition to the wide range of Tikkurila industrial coatings, is a durable, all-seasons epoxy coating with optimal anti-corrosion properties, fast overcoating times and excellent adhesion to steel, zinc and aluminum surfaces. It can be used on building frameworks, bridges, refineries, power plants, conveyors and other structural steel and equipment in the heavy-duty Protective Coatings market.

The volume solids content of Temacoat HS-F Primer is 80%, so the paint has a lower VOC value compared to conventional epoxy primers. It also provides shorter drying and recoating times even at low temperatures (down to -10°C), which is a considerable advantage. Temacoat HS-F Primer can be used all year round, expanding the geographic area of application.

This high-performance primer enables a wide range of film thicknesses in one layer, which makes the painting process of complex structures easier.

– Temacoat HS-F Primer is developed for the demanding, long-term protection of steel. Compared to traditional primers, it dries and cures very fast even at low temperatures typical for Northern Europe. It is truly a time-saving solution: since it is over-coatable after only two hours, you can get the job done in one day, says Michael Aamodt, Group Business and Portfolio Development Director at Tikkurila Oyj.
