Paints & Coatings

Besides our full line of Industrial, Architectural, and Marine coatings, we provide an extensive line of military paints and coatings. We supply everything from the pre-treatment, conversion coatings, to the top-coat and wax.

Zinc Chromate Primer, Alkyd based

The old stand-by for corrosion protection, zinc chromate primers are becoming increasingly harder to find. We are proud to be able to offer zinc chromate primers meeting the following specifications: TT-P-1757, Rev. A. yellow or green, TT-P-1757, Rev. B, type 1, class C, yellow (aerosols available in yellow or green), TT-P-1757, Rev B, type I, class N, and  TT-P-645, Rev. A.

MIL-PRF-85825E, Type I, Class H, 
Polyurethane Coating for Aircraft and Support Equipment

Type I of this polyurethane coating is intended for use on aircraft weapons systems and other applications. The combination of all properties of MIL-PRF-85285; component; liquid; cured coating; resistance; mixing; application; cleanability; strippability; along with the composition and solvent content provide the necessary requirements for a polyurethane coating used in the extremes of the naval aviation environment. There are no commercial equivalents that meet the combination of all properties of MIL-PRF-85285.

Specialty Coatings is excited to offer the recently released MIL-PRF-85285D, Type I, class H in aerosol cans. We can supply 2-component, single use, aerosol cans that are qualified to the specification in all gloss levels and most colors of the Fed Std 595 color chart. The aerosol can is capable of touching up 12-20 square feet of surface area. Please call for pricing and availability.   

CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating)

The CARC system is a combination of pretreatments, primers and topcoats. After surface preparation and pretreatment, exteriors of vehicles are painted with an epoxy primer, then with an aliphatic polyurethane topcoat. The interior of hull-type vehicles get an epoxy enamel over the epoxy primer. CARC provides a surface that resists the penetration of chemical agents. This makes for quick, complete decontamination. It does NOT soak up chemical agents the way alkyd paint does. It also resists removal by decontaminating solutions. We carry the coatings specified in all three components of the CARC system.

Marine Coatings 

We carry a complete line of marine coatings that will protect everything from bilges to ballast tanks to anti fouling to deck coatings.  Our extensive product  assortment from PPG Amercoat and International Paints has you covered no matter what the exposure is.
