Coating manufacturer Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) recently announced an expansion to its Tufcote line of topcoats and primers, adding three new alkyd products designed for industrial use, including in the oil and gas and construction equipment industries.

The new additions to the line are:

  • Tufcote LV HG series acrylic alkyd;
  • Tufcote 2.8 HG series acrylic alkyd; and
  • Tufcote 2.8 HG series VT alkyd.

According to Axalta, the Tufcote LV HG series acrylic alkyd topcoats and primers are geared toward a wide variety of industrial surfaces, including machines, buildings, construction equipment, drilling rigs, oil field equipment and pipelines. The topcoat’s enamel is formulated from acrylic-modified alkyd resin. Both Tufcote LV HG high gloss and Tufcote LV ST satin gloss are intended for areas subjected to hard use, and each coating also meets the SCAQMD Rule 1113 at a VOC level of 0.8 pounds per gallon.

Axalta Coating Systems recently announced an expansion to its Tufcote line of topcoats and primers, adding three new alkyd products designed for industrial use, including in the oil and gas and construction equipment industries.

The Tufcote 2.8 HG series is an extremely high gloss topcoat, designed for weather protection on farm and construction equipment and interior high-traffic areas such as door frames, trim and cabinets,  the company says. The coating is formulated at a VOC level of 2.8 pounds per gallon, and is available in 20 different industrial colors.

The Tufcote 2.8 HG series abrasion-resistant VT alkyd topcoat was designed for use by engineers and manufacturers. According to Axalta, the paint is formulated to dry fast by using aliphatic solvents. The coating is available in a variety of colors, 2.8 pounds per gallon VOC, and can be used on electrical enclosures, switch boxes, storage, barricades and oil production tools.

Axalta recommends that the Tufcote acrylic alkyd and VT alkyd topcoats be used over Tufcote LV PR acrylic alkyd primers, which have a VOC level of 0.8 pounds per gallon and possess rust-inhibitive characteristics.
