Top-performing primer decreases drying and sanding times by 50%

BASEL, SWITZERLAND – SEPT. 21, 2020 Axalta (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, today launched the PercoTop® CS388 SupraSand high-build epoxy primer for customers in Europe. This primer can be applied directly to metal surfaces and eliminates the need for filler, surfacer or e-coat.
