Talbert Introduces Valspar R-Cure 800 Paint and Aquaguard Corrosion Upgrades
To ensure long-lasting color and gloss, and optimal corrosion protection, Talbert Manufacturing now offers Valspar R-Cure 800 as its standard paint. Talbert 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.It also protects Talbert’s heavy-haul trailers against scratches and chips when out on the road. To give customers the ultimate corrosion protection, Talbert recommends using Valspar R-Cure 800 in conjunction with either an optional zinc-rich primer or Aquaguard upgrade.
Talbert’s alkyd primer, which is standard, works well in a variety of applications. 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. 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 percent 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 percent less cost and without the added weight; and unlike galvanizing, Aquaguard is non-toxic when welding is involved.
