PPG Sigma AquaCover 400 is a pack poly amide cured water-borne general purpose epoxy build coat and protective coating systems for steel structures and concrete surfaces.
Sigma AquaCover 400 is a two component polyamide cured water-borne epoxy particularly suitable when solvents are not permitted because of health and safety reasons. Sigma AquaCover 400 works excellently well as part of a protective system used on structural steel exposed to adverse atmospheric conditions.
Sigma AquaCover 400 is a coating best used to offer excellent durability to the surface ready for an overcoating with any of the range of Sigma Topcoats. AquaCover 400 can be overcoated with most dispersion and alkyd paints to create a durable finish but is best used over surfaces primed with AquaCover 200.
Sigma AquaCover 400 can be applied using airless spray, long haired brush or roller with rounder edges and has an ultra fast drying time of just 1.5 hours to touch at 20 degrees Celsius and is ready for an overcoat after just 2 hours. Sigma AquaCover 400 has a theoretical coverage rate of 7.1m2 per litre and is available in a selection of shades suitable for use on metal. and concrete floors.
Surface and Environment
