Sumter Coatings began its life in the fall of 1996. With the purchase and closing of Southern Coatings / Pratt & Lambert, the employees saw a need to start a new company, thus, Sumter Coatings. We have a combined history and knowledge of over 250 years in the coatings industry. Since our company's inception, we have become a leader in the paint and coatings industry. We are proud of our company's rich heritage.
Our 71,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility enables us to research, develop and manufacture the finest coatings. Our facility is equipped with stainless steel mixing tanks, which are mounted on load cells for the most accurate measuring of raw materials. Our spacious facility allows us to stock many of the items you need fast. Our plant has the capability to produce batches up to 5,000 gallons and production capabilities of over 60,000 gallons per week.
We have now been operating for close to 20 years and have been very successful in extending our relationships, as well as establishing new ones. We have formulated new products with more expectations for the future.

          3.801 Series Shopcoat Primer: V.O.C. compliant primer, using no heavy metals, which allows for easy disposal. Ideal for steel exposed to a normal or mildly corrosive environment. Shop Coat Primer dries to a hard finish allowing top coating of most single package enamels without blistering, lifting or alligatoring.
          a.Surface Preparation: SSPC-SP3
          b.Recommended Film Thickness: 1 ct. @ 1.5 - 3 mils dft
          c.Meets SSPC Paint No. 15
          d.Colors: 801R2712 Red Oxide, 801D1007 Gray
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Universal steel primers contain a significant amount of rust inhibitive pigment, which translates to protection from corrosion for extended periods of time before top coating or enclosure. Additionally they may be top coated with coatings containing strong solvents, such as two-part epoxies and polyurethanes, without fear of lifting the primer. This is the primer of choice when the subsequent topcoat is unknown. They may also be used as an intermediate coat over old coatings that may lift if top coated with coatings containing strong solvents.
 
          B.Universal Steel Alkyd Primers
          1.Universal Primer: Formulated to accept topcoats such as epoxies, polyurethanes, lacquers and acrylics, which may contain strong solvents.

          2.High Solids Universal Primer: Formulated to comply with TT-P 664D. It is an excellent primer for use on bare metal or over existing paints creating a barrier and allowing various topcoats to include Epoxies and Urethanes. Ideal for steel that will be exposed to mild or normal corrosion environments.
          a.Surface Preparation: Surface must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, grease, oil, loose rust, loose mill scale, and contaminants.
          b.Recommended Film Thickness: 1 ct. @ 2 mils dft
          c.Complies with TT-P-664D
          d.Colors: 100D1364 Gray, 100R1369 Red

          a.Surface Preparation: SSPC-SP6
          b.Recommended Film Thickness: 1 ct. @ 2 - 2.5 mils dft
          c.Colors: 755D Gray, 755W Off-White
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Our zinc-rich primers offer superior long-term protection for steel from corrosion and have excellent adhesive and protective properties. They perform similarly to galvanizing for structural steel surfaces. These primers contain a high percentage of zinc dust, which acts sacrificially when in direct contact with the steel. The zinc salts, which invariably form, fill the pores of the primer sealing off the steel substrate from moisture. They also are very flexible when applicating, as top coats don't need to be applied immediately after the primer.
 
          C.Zinc Rich Primers
          1.Enviro Zinc Organic Zinc Rich Epoxy Primer: Enviro Zinc Organic Epoxy is the primer of choice in highly corrosive environments.
          a.Surface Preparation: SSPC-SP6. For maximum protection for condensation, splash, or spillage SSPC-SP10 is required.
          b.Recommended Film Thickness: 1 ct. @ 2 - 3.5 mils dft
          c.Color: Gray-green
          2.Enviro-Zinc Inorganic Zinc Rich Epoxy Primer: Ethyl Silicate Inorganic Zinc Rich - two-components. Used as a single coat for weathering protection or be applied as a primer for subsequent application of organic topcoats
          a.Surface Preparation: SSPC-SP6. For maximum protection for condensation, splash, or spillage SSPC-SP10 is required.
          b.Recommended Film Thickness: 1 ct. @ 2 - 4 mils dft
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Two-part epoxy primers are structural steel primers that require two-components, which cure chemically by cross linking. The resulting film is abrasion, chemical and moisture resistant. These two-part epoxy primers are intended for use over properly prepared steel and concrete. They are suitable for many industrial exposures such as structural steel, power plants, marine applications, water treatment plants, tank exteriors, etc.
 
          D.Two-Part Epoxy Primers
          1.Enviro Pox 949 High Build Epoxy Mastic: High-quality primer/coating that can be used with or without primer over steel, galvanized metal, aluminum and concrete.

          i.Surface Preparation:
          1)Iron and Steel: minimum surface preparation Hand Tool Clean per SSPC-SP2. Remove all oil and grease from surface by Solvent Cleaning per SSPC-SP1. For better performance, use Commercial Blast Cleaning per SSPC-SP6/NACE 3, blast clean all surfaces using a sharp, angular abrasive for optimum surface profile (2 mils). Prime any bare steel within 8 hours or before flash rusting occurs. Primer required.
          2)Aluminum: Remove all oil, grease, dirt, oxide and other foreign material by Solvent Cleaning per SSPCSP1. Primer required.
          3)Galvanized Steel: Remove all oil, grease, dirt, oxide and other foreign material by Solvent Cleaning per SSPCSP1. When the surface has been treated with chromates or silicates, first Solvent Clean per SSPC-SP1 and apply a test patch. Allow paint to dry at least one week before testing adhesion. If adhesion is poor, brush blasting per SSPC-SP16 is necessary to remove these treatments. Rusty galvanizing requires a minimum of Hand Tool Cleaning per SSPC-SP2, prime the area the same day as cleaned. Primer required.
          4)Concrete and Masonry: For surface preparation, refer to SSPC-SP13/NACE 6, or ICRI No. 310.2, CSP 1-3. Remove all loose mortar and foreign material. Surface must be free of laitance, dust, form release agents, moisture curing membranes, loose cement and hardeners. Concrete and mortar must be cured at least 28 days @ 75 degrees F. On tilt-up and poured-in-place concrete, commercial detergents and abrasive blasting may be necessary. Primer required.
