New CV topcoat from HMG Paints

Manchester based paint manufacturer, HMG Paints Ltd has launched a commercial vehicle topcoat, Acrythane 4G.

The company claims it is a “one visit application” that offers a high gloss, high solids acrylic polyurethane coating for the commercial vehicle market.

Ideal for OEM, repairers and builders within a demanding marketplace, Acrythane 4G has an optimised balance of early hardness, fast cure and long pot life. Its ultra-fast air-dry properties create process and energy savings for users.

Developed to provide outstanding gloss, final appearance and durability over a range of HMG primers, Acrythane 4G offers enhanced properties over traditional systems. “I have been using HMG products for many years now, the 4G product is without doubt the best gloss I’ve seen from a Commercial Transport coating” said Kenny Wells of Wells Coachworks.

Acrythane 4G is both VOC and Reach compliant and available as both a coloured topcoat and Clearcoat. Utilising HMG’s innovative Unit Lite tinting system, Acrythane 4G is available in a wide variety of colours including RAL, BS and Commercial Vehicle standards.

4G can be applied by conventional gravity and HVLP spray guns, giving coverage of 9.3 square metres per litre @ 50 microns film thickness. Surface preparation is as simple as a solvent wipe or shot blasting.
