“Return Visit” was painted with Axalta’s Corlar 824S™, a two-component epoxy primer that delivers excellent durability and good corrosion protection, and Cromax Pro, a low VOC waterborne basecoat. For the topcoat, Axalta’s high-performance Imron Industrial MS600™ high-solid, low-gloss clearcoat was selected for its high durability and long-term protection capability.
“Seward Johnson’s “Return Visit” is a timeless and inspirational piece of art,” said Michael Cash, Axalta Senior Vice President and President, Industrial Coatings. “Axalta works diligently to diversify our technology portfolio to be able to provide protection, beauty and reliability from primer to topcoat paint layers. This is a great example of what can be achieved with a broad portfolio of products.”
The poignant piece depicts President Lincoln discussing the Gettysburg Address with a contemporary citizen, demonstrating the timeless relevance of its message. “Return Visit” is currently on exhibit at Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
