Product Description

Please note, this product is now discontinued. See PPG Sigmafast 205 as a potential alternative.

PPG SigmaFast 213 is a two component high build polyamide cured vinyl epoxy primer or build coat designed for use in protective coating systems for steel structures.

Best Uses

PPG SigmaFast 213 has been specially designed for steel structures in strong atmospheric conditions and is available in grey and yellow for improved visibility of certain structures that often prove difficult to see at night or in dark conditions. 


SigmaFast 213 can be applied easily using airless spray, brush or roller and like all SigmaFast coatings has a quick drying time or just 50 minutes, ready for an overcoating after 1 hour. SigmaFast 213 offers speed and ease of handling making it easier to apply than other conventional high build paints.

Surface and Environment

SigmaFast 213 is particularly ideal for use on steel structures that are dry and have been cleaned thoroughly prior to application. Once applied the surface will be tough and flexible allowing structures to move due to atmospheric conditions but will maintain its high quality flat appearance without cracking or flaking.
