Awlgrip launches Awlfair Surfacing Filler for European market
By William Mathieson | Other articles by this author
Awlgrip has announced the launch of Awlfair Surfacing Filler, a new surfacing filler for its European range of products.
Awlfair Surfacing Filler is the replacement for the EU-only Standard E Trowelable Fairing Compound and is a premium two component epoxy finishing filler intended for professional use over Awlfair LW to fill sand scratches, pinholes and surface imperfections.
Utilising the same technology as Awlfair LW Fairing Compound, Awlfair Surfacing Filler provides a smooth finish and is used prior to applying the finish primers and topcoat.
The advanced resin technology also gives Awlfair Surfacing Filler solvent resistance coupled with an improved health and safety profile.
Chris Toole, Awlgrip's global brand manager, Awlgrip commented:
“Following the highly successful launch of our Global Awlfair a few years ago, we have been testing and trialling this new Awlfair Surfacing Filler. Being able to use our knowledge and expertise in fillers, combined with the Awlfair LW resin technology, has enabled our dedicated yacht chemists to formulate a glazing filler with an outstanding smooth finish.
“This product represents another great addition to the Awlgrip product range giving our EU customers the freedom to choose the system that suits them best and ultimately gives that great Awlgrip finish”.
