PSX® 700 - 3

PPG’s innovative technology proves that you do not need a three-coat system to obtain the optimum corrosion resistance of a zinc primer and an epoxy midcoat, along with the long-term gloss and color retention of conventional aliphatic polyurethane. Now, with only one coat of zinc primer, plus one coat of our breakthrough PSX 700 you get performance equalling, or surpassing, the finest three-coat systems available today. Our unique system uses patented engineered siloxane components delivering the excellent adhesion, toughness, corrosion and chemical resistances of epoxy siloxane. In...

PSX® 700 - 4

FACTOR 1 - unsurpassed performance FACTOR 2 - significant cost savings PSX 700 offers a longer service life than the traditional epoxy/aliphatic polyurethane system it replaces (see Table 1, Service life projection). And when combined with a zinc primer, the two-coat system significantly outlasts the best three-coat systems (zinc primer, epoxy midcoat, and polyurethane finish). PPG’s PSX 700 siloxane-epoxy coating delivers dramatic, proven cost savings. Use one coat of PSX 700 to replace a conventional epoxy/polyurethane topcoat system or use PSX 700 over a zinc primer to replace a...

FACTOR 3 - outstanding environmental characteristics PSX 700 meets, or exceeds, today’s stringent environmental, health and safety requirements due to its formulation of ultra-high solids and extremely low-volatile organic compounds. It also needs little or no thinning, providing significant reduction in solvent emissions and hazardous waste. • Airports • Bridges • Heavy equipment • Manufactured products • Marine topsides and superstructures • Offshore platforms • Piping • Structural steel • Tank exteriors • Wind turbines Importantly, unlike polyurethane, PSX 700 does not contain hazardous...

PSX® 700 - 7

Typical systems using PSX 700 System-1: Zinc epoxy based Zinc epoxy Engineered siloxane Zinc silicate Engineered siloxane Epoxy mastic Surface tolerant epoxy Engineered siloxane System-2: Zinc silicate based Zinc in compliance with ISO 12944. Features and benefits of PSX 700 engineered siloxane Unsurpassed performance Superior color and gloss retention PSX 700 significantly outperforms the polyurethane system in color and gloss retention. A traditional polyurethane method begins to lose its color and gloss at an exponential rate after five years of application, whereas PSX 700 has been...
