HMG Paints introduces primer system for defence applications

Manchester based HMG Paints is continuing its commitment to innovation in defence coatings with the introduction of an advanced two pack Polyurethane primer system which surpasses the requirements of Def Stan 80 – 225 for land based military equipment.

This recently developed primer system boasts an impressive capability to endure over 2,000 hours in BS EN ISO 9227 salt spray conditions, making it a standout performer in demanding, high-stress environments. The high-performance primer has been meticulously developed to ensure ease of application and can be conveniently used wet on wet over a blast profile.

Designed with a keen focus on corrosion protection, the new primer finds its ideal application in scenarios where environmental challenges such as high ambient temperatures and humidity prevail. Its versatility extends to both ferrous (Type 1) and non-ferrous (Type 2) substrates, making it a valuable asset across a range of land-based defence applications. Meeting and surpassing the rigorous standards set by Def Stan 80 – 225, this primer sets a new benchmark in protective coatings.

For non-ferrous substrates, the primer is recommended to be used in conjunction with the DEF2601002 Etch Primer, available in 10-litre kits. The new primer is conveniently packaged as a five-litre kit, identified by the product code DEF2301001 Light Grey Polyurethane Primer (NSN8010999130006). HMG's commitment to advancing defence coatings is evident in the development of this primer, offering military and defence applications an effective solution for enhanced durability and corrosion resistance.

HMG is also now JOSCAR certified which means Primes can speed up their access to HMG’s defence portfolio and all products are also Made in Britain certified. As a British based manufacturer HMG can provide fast delivery across its entire range, something which the company believes can benefit businesses who use JOSCAR and other OEMs and refinishers.

The HMG Defence range offers products which are free from Chrome VI, meet low VOC requirements, IRR and CARC paints and includes military standards such as 80-225.  Alongside Defence Standard products, HMG produce a wide range of approved high-quality coatings for practically every purpose for the defence industry.

HMG’s product range is suitable for equipment such as containers, trailers, vehicles, bridges and armour. HMG are renowned for their innovative approach to coatings including corrosion resistant primers, functional topcoats approved to UK defence standards and offer bespoke formulation development for any paints and coatings problems.
