Product Description

This product has now been discontinued. Please contact our technical team for a suitable alternative.

PPG SigmaCover 240 is a two component high solids polyamide adduct cured epoxy coating that offers a high level of corrosion resistance in areas with high moisture exposure and can be applied even at low temperatures if it is difficult to provide a warm condition in which to apply the product.

Best Uses

SigmaCover 240 is best used in industrial and coastal conditions where there is a need for a protective coating. SigmaCover 240 can be used near coastlines and on appliances close to seawater and works to protect the substrate against damage from sea water and chemically polluted water.


SigmaCover 240 can be applied using airless spray, long haired brush or roller with rounder edges and has an ultra fast drying time of just 5 hours to touch at low temperatures and is ready for an overcoat after this time has elapsed. SigmaCover 240 has a theoretical coverage rate of 8.7m2 per litre and is suitable for use directly onto metal.

Surface and Environment

SigmaCover 240 is highly suited for use in exterior environments and has been designed to resist corrosion, abrasion and water on a daily basis. 240 SigmaCover is available in Oxide Red and Grey for use on common metals like steel, iron and aluminium.
