PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings business has introduced PSX 700SG for use by U.S. Navy vessels and other federal marine coatings applications.
The new product is a semi-gloss version of PPG’s patented PSX 700 epoxy polysiloxane coating and has been engineered to meet and exceed marine coating requirements established by the U.S. government, PPG says.
PSX 700SG is approved on the U.S. Navy Qualified Product List (QPL) for topside and freeboard applications and meets the U.S. Navy Federal Standard Color standards for Haze Gray. PSX 700SG also complies with U.S. Department of Defense MIL-PRF-24635E, Type V (high-durability), Type VI (high-durability, low-volatile organic compound), Class 2 (semi-gloss), Grade B (low solar-absorbing) specifications.
PSX 700SG can reduce the total operating cost of government vessels, according to Steve Feldman, PPG national sales director, protective coatings, North America. “In addition to its low-VOC formulation, PSX 700SG has unlimited recoatability, making touch-up and maintenance easier while being a color-stable LSA (low solar-absorbing) coating,” Feldman said.
PSX 700SG is designed to provide superior abrasion resistance, wide cure-temperature flexibility and surface tension that minimizes rust or dirt streaking.
