Published on 2006-08-02. Author : SpecialChem

Sassenheim, the Netherlands -- Akzo Nobel Car Refinishes launches Lesonal 1K Etch Primer. This new primer has been developed to provide perfect adhesion and corrosion protection, quickly and easily. Unlike its 2K equivalents, it is also chromate free, making it less hazardous to the environment.

Lesonal launches environmentally aware 1K Etch Primer

The latest addition to the Lesonal family offers multiple advantages to busy bodyshop owners. There's no need for extra financial outlay, because Lesonal 1K Etch Primer can simply be mixed with the appropriate Lesonal Multi Thinner, rather than a dedicated acid-containing activator. This also cuts down the time spent on cleaning sprayguns.

Other benefits include: rapid drying time (15 minutes at 20?C); complete coverage in one or two coats; and unlimited potlife, saving time and reducing wastage. The smooth finish results in an excellent final appearance.

As for performance - adhesion and corrosion protection is equivalent to, or even better than, that of 2K chromate-containing products. Lesonal 1K Etch Primer is also available in an aerosol.
