To ensure long-lasting color and gloss, and optimal corrosion protection, Talbert Manufacturing now offers Valspar R-Cure 800 as its standard paint, the company recently announced. Talbert said it also offers Valspar’s Aquaguard primer as an upgrade corrosion protection option.
R-Cure 800 is a two-component, reactive-cure paint that once applied – even after exposure to extreme weather – holds its initial gloss and color for at least 1,500 hours, according to Talbert.
“Talbert’s alkyd primer, which is standard, works well in a variety of applications,” the company said. “But for more extreme environments, Talbert offers the primer upgrades for enhanced corrosion protection. When working in highly corrosive environments, such as within an industrial atmosphere, Aquaguard works best, as it offers similar results to galvanizing but with a much smaller price tag.”
“When used along with R-Cure 800, both the zinc-rich primer and Aquaguard provide 60 percent less creep from scribe,” according to Talbert. “Although both primers provide effective corrosion protection, nothing compares to the combination of R-Cure 800 and Aquaguard. Trailers with this pairing have proven to have 55% less corrosion beneath the coating than using the standard alkyd primer. Further, the use of Aquaguard gives a comparable level of protection as galvanizing, but for 75% less cost and without the added weight; and unlike galvanizing, Aquaguard is non-toxic when welding is involved.”
