Sustainable technology. Enduring performance.
Extreme environments are tough on your equipment, whether it’s salty ocean air, road cleaning chemicals or gritty construction sites. To protect against these environments, Valspar brings more than 60 years of water-based coatings experience to demanding markets with Valspar Aquagard. Providing best-in-class corrosion protection for metal substrates, Aquaguard protects equipment for the long haul, ensuring equipment stays in service longer with fewer repairs.
Aquaguard Prime is a primer coat that delivers outstanding corrosion protection and full coverage at a lower film weight than products containing zinc. In addition, its low-VOC formulation is designed to meet the most stringent environmental compliance standards around the world.
- Stong adhesion to metal substrates limits damage to the coating as a result of normal wear and tear
- Outstanding corrosion protection provides better protection for metal substrates from damage and prevents the spread of rust over time
- Zinc-free, lower-weight product formulations lower overall equipment weight, saving on equipment transportation
- Low-VOC formulations help meet performance and environmental standards without sacrificing product performance
- Low-VOC formulation: Up to a 94% reduction in VOCs compared to alternative solvent and zinc liquid formulations
- Corrosion Resistance: Corrosion reduction of up to 60% in salt spray and cyclic testing, providing better corrosion results than e-coat, zinc formulations and similar performance to galvanized products.
- Long-term performance: Reduces the spread and depth of corrosion in damaged areas when compared to zinc formulations.
- Extensive approvals: Passes most stringent approvals and specifications in many demanding markets.
- Sustainability: Zinc-free coatings improve air quality and working conditions at manufacturing sites and surrounding areas.
