Apr 1, 2023 | Featured Article, News

PPG has announced the launch of the PPG Envirocron Primeron primer powder portfolio, designed to provide high corrosion resistance for metal substrates including steel, hot-dip-galvanised steel, metallised steel and aluminium.

“Protective primers are the first line of defence to protect metal surfaces from corrosion, the most significant challenge in the metal coatings industry,” says Lorenzo Soldavini, PPG Technical Manager Powder, EMEA, Industrial Coatings. “Use of PPG Envirocron Primeron primer in a multi-layer system offers optimal corrosion protection and is key to extending a product’s lifespan and preserving its structural integrity.”

The PPG Envirocron Primeron primer powder portfolio has been tested according to the corrosivity categories and approved by the QUALISTEELCOAT international quality label for coated steel. The series covers a wide range of requirements depending on end use, operating environment and the substrate used:


  • PPG Envirocron Primeron ZINC coating is a zinc-rich primer offering strong corrosion protection.
  • PPG Envirocron Primeron PRO coating is a solid basic primer for strong corrosion protection regardless of the pre-treatment method. It offers good mechanical performance with a well-balanced property profile.
  • PPG Envirocron Primeron EDGE coating offers best-in-class corrosion protection for substrates with sharp edges. It is optimised for degassing substrates.
  • PPG Envirocron Primeron FLEX coating provides very good corrosion protection for multiple substrates including aluminium and different pre-treatment methods.


“At PPG, we focus on differentiated innovation and sustainability to create value for our customers,” says Anne Banuls, PPG Powder Coatings Business Manager, EMEA, Industrial Coatings. “The PPG Envirocron Primeron powder primer series expands our offering of designed solutions for durable protection against corrosion for metal substrates.”
