The Sherwin-Williams Company offered a full line of quality, high performing primers that are free of chrome and lead hazards for the use on aircraft.

These new low-VOC (2.9 lb/gal, 348 g/L), two-component, corrosion-inhibitive products contain no hexavalent chromium (CR(VI)) and subsequently meet the Occupational Health and Safety Administration's (OSHA) latest standard for occupation exposure.
