AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes business has announced the most recent extension to its commercial paint brand in North America, U-TECH E250 direct-to-metal (DTM) epoxy primer.
This all-in-one surfacer and sealer provides a comprehensive solution for both the commercial builder and refinishes market. As a high-solid, low-VOC, HAPs-compliant DTM epoxy primer, it is versatile for direct use over multiple substrates, including galvanized steel, blasted steel, aluminum, body filler and existing finishes.
Adding to this versatility, the product comes in black, white and shades of gray that can be tinted with intermix tints. Combined, this flexibility effectively eliminates steps and reduces production time. Additionally, the VOC flexibility of 3.5 or 2.1 lbs./gal. makes the product appropriate for all regulated areas.
“We are very pleased to be able to add this new epoxy primer to our U-TECH line,” said Kari Greason, commercial vehicle segment manager for AkzoNobel’s, Vehicle Refinishes business. “As a direct-to-metal primer, this product delivers the productivity, simplicity and most importantly consistency that all painters are looking for. Also, the ability to tint brings the added benefit of enhancing that all-important basecoat color. This product lives up to the brand promise of U-TECH – delivering ‘better process, better results.’”
