PPG launches AUE-300YL and AUE-360YL

PPG Commercial Coatings has introduced AUE-300YL and AUE-360YL, two high-hiding, yellow urethane resin bases intended to provide increased hiding power for select industrial colors. These new resins are additions to the AUE-300 Low VOC Urethane Enamel and AUE-360 High Solids Urethane Enamel topcoat systems, respectively, and are part of the PPG Commercial Performance Coatings brand of products.

“AUE-300YL and AUE-360YL have been used to reformulate certain colors in the two-book PPG Commercial Performance Coatings color selector,” said Steve Podlas, brand manager for PPG Commercial Coatings. “We identified 25 colors to date as having formulations that often take five or six coats to achieve hiding using the standard, clear mixing resin. But now, with AUE-300YL and AUE-360YL, we can provide 30-35 percent better hiding than the original formulation.”

Hiding, or hiding power, is the ability of a paint film to mask the color or pattern of a surface the paint film covers. According to Podlas, the new resins’ yellow color gives them an enhanced hiding capability. This, in turn, reduces the number of coats required in an application and results in lower labor and material costs for the end user.

“Better hiding means saving time and expense to the customer,” said Podlas. “And, obviously, that’s a significant benefit.”

AUE-300YL and AUE-360YL are recommended for interior and exterior use on properly prepared surfaces. Application examples include metal fabrication, castings, cabinets, machinery, and heavy equipment. AUE-360YL offers excellent exterior durability, mar and chemical resistance, UV resistance, and high dry film hiding capability with minimal coats.

PPG’s Commercial Coatings group offers a full range of coating technologies for the commercial transportation and light industrial markets including polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pre-treatment chemicals and powder coatings. PPG Commercial Coatings products are marketed under several brand names, including Delfleet Evolution, Delfleet Essential, Commercial Performance Coatings and Amercoat.
