Product Description

PPG SigmaCover 380 is a universal epoxy anti-corrosive primer based upon pure epoxy technology suitable for ballast tanks and marine structures.

Best Uses

PPG SigmaCover 380 is best suited as a anti-corrosive primer for application to ballast tanks, decks, topside, superstructures and hulls. Sigmacover 380 has good abrasion resistance for dedicated areas of application.

  • Suitable for immersion service (ballast tanks, outside shell)
  • Good anti-corrosive properties and water resistance
  • Good flexibility
  • Resistant to well designed cathodic protection
  • Good drying and curing properties
  • Suitable for both new building and maintenance applications


Prepare substrate as per data sheets. The temperature of the mixed base and hardener should preferably be above 15°C, otherwise extra thinner may be required to obtain application viscosity. Apply via brush for stripe coating and spot repair only. Usual application is via airless spray.
