Aquacron® water-based coatings

Aquacron® water-based technology is PPG Commercial Coatings' latest alkyd and acrylic product offering for the industrial market. Aquacron products provide several performance advantages such as a very fast dry, excellent adhesion properties, early water resistance, and direct-to-metal options for interior and exterior use. They can also be sprayed through a variety of equipment (e.g. HVLP, airless, air-assisted airless, conventional, and electrostatic). While the alkyd and acrylic topcoats are available in a set of core, factory-packaged colors, they can also be custom tinted to meet your specific requirements.

Include Aquacron primers and topcoats in your portfolio to help target new market opportunities—example applications include trailers, agricultural and construction, general metal opportunities, refurbished furniture, shelving and store fixtures, and wherever end-customers demand water-based solutions.
