PPG Launches ALK28-901 Topcoat

Published January 4, 2013
The commercial coatings group of PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) automotive refinish business has introduced ALK28-901, a factory-packaged 2.8 VOC (volatile organic compound) alkyd enamel intended for general industrial use. The new black topcoat is fast-drying and suitable for trailers, metal fabrications, castings, cabinets, machinery and heavy equipment.

“This is an excellent high-quality product for the value-conscious coating segment,” said Steve Podlas, PPG brand manager for commercial coatings. “We’ve formulated ALK28-901 to be a versatile solution for a variety of industrial applications. It can be applied directly to metal, on select substrates or over approved primers. In addition, its fast-dry characteristics and good water-spot resistance can help increase production throughput. We believe ALK28-901 provides all the key attributes customers want in an efficient, high-quality topcoat.”

Podlas also pointed out that the topcoat has been designed as a thin film build product requiring just one or two coats. ALK28-901 can be applied using conventional, HVLP (high-volume, low-pressure), airless or air-assisted airless spray equipment and can be sprayed with or without reduction.
