Cortec® announces core shell acrylic modified alkyd EcoPrimer

A Bio-Based Solution to Corrosion

This core shell acrylic modified alkyd is the first coating to combine a bio-based coating formulation with Cortec’s unique corrosion inhibiting chemistry.

EcoPrimer provides good adhesion to metal substrates, and excellent corrosion resistance in virtually any environment to provide a superior degree of protection. The water-based formulation makes it easier to comply with environmental regulations governing solvents and VOC limits. EcoPrimer provides excellent durability and coverage and clean up is easy with soap and water.

EcoPrimer may be applied by spray or brush. A film thickness of 1.5-4.0 dry mils (37.5-100 microns) is recommended. The coating dries to touch in 20-30 minutes and is fully cured in seven days. Topcoats can be applied between 30 minutes and 8 hours after EcoPrimer is applied, depending upon the type of topcoat and drying conditions.
