New high gloss system for ACE and Haulage industry available nationwide

12 July 2022

BY Paddy

A new two-component, high solids polyurethane system is bringing a high gloss finish more accustomed to vehicle refinishing to the extremely demanding ACE and haulage market. The new high build 2-pack polyurethane CFB 2K System from HMG Paints, the UK’s largest independent paint manufacturer, further expands HMG’s ACE (Agricultural and Construction Equipment) range.

CFB 2K Primer can be used Wet on Wet and has been formulated to provide excellent sanding properties, adhesion and corrosion protection for steel substrates used throughout the Agricultural and Construction Equipment marketplace.

Alongside the primer, the system delivers a great finish for both OEM’s and Refinishes thanks to the excellent flow properties of CFB 2K Topcoat. CFB 2K Topcoat produces a high gloss finish with excellent gloss retention, and provides resistance to chemical and atmospheric attack, which is ideal for demanding environments.

Danny Cleary, HMG Sales Director commented on the new development, “The superior anti-corrosive properties and excellent durability of our new CFB System, prevents corrosion in all conditions, creating extended time to first maintenance, which provides a huge benefit to customers who adopt the system.”

The CFB 2K System can be applied via Compliant Spray Gun, Pressure Pot or Airless/Air-Assisted and provides a host of economic and environmental benefits. As a high-solids product, CFB 2K significantly reduces VOC emissions during production and application. Additionally, the primer and topcoat utilise the same hardener and thinners reducing costs and stock holding for the applicator. These features allow users to gain significant benefits from this high-quality, cost-effective system.

The CFB 2K System will also utilise HMG’s new ColourBase Colour Box which features 2400 colour chips, displayed in chromatic order within 20 fan decks. The ColourBase Colour Box has cross references to a number of colours from the ACE industry and users can also chip up against a product to identify the perfect colour.

Colours are produced using HMG’s innovative UNIT colourants making CFB available in a wide variety of additional colours including popular RAL & British standard variations.  HMG Paints maintain an unrivalled colour library of more than 200,000 colours, all available from HMG or via local, independent distributors across the UK and Ireland who stock a number of products and offer colour matching services. Boasting over 5000 custom colour matches each year, HMG’s colour matching and colour development service produces a consistent result across a number of applications and systems.
