Abrasion-resistant, surface-tolerant, multipurpose epoxy for severe environments

Like other coatings in the PPG SIGMASHIELD family of reinforced products, PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 is engineered and formulated to resist corrosion in a wide range of industries and applications.

It provides cost savings by reducing the time and expense associated with surface preparation as well as providing greater application efficiency and enhanced finish quality.

Further, as PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 can be rapidly immersed and continues to cure after seawater immersion, it is particularly suited for structures exposed to tidal movement and surges, and for offshore splash zones such as those encountered in offshore power projects.

Benefits of two coats – in a single coat

As a fast drying, single-coat system, PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 speeds up the coating process to minimize downtime. Application is simplified by the coating’s high surface tolerance (suitable for damp or wet-blast clean substrates), extended recoat window and the high film thickness that is achieved in one coat. Superior resistance to abrasion, impact, corrosion and seawater prolongs service life and protects assets in some of the world’s most severe environments.

Splash and spill resistance

In addition, PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 exhibits good chemical resistance with splash and spill resistance to the following materials:

  • Ethanol
  • Butanol
  • Propanol
  • 5% Potassium Hydroxide
  • 5% Sodium Hydroxide
  • 10% Sodium Chloride
  • 10% Ammonia Solution

Trusted and tested

PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 is the latest addition to PPG’s extensive range of PPG SIGMASHIELD epoxy coatings that have consistent, proven performance in the harshest service environments. It provides industry-leading performance as confirmed by both internal and external testing laboratories. As well as its protective properties, the product is also available in a range of colors.

PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 complies with the following international standards:

NORSOK M501 Revision 5 System 7

ISO 12944-6 C5M High
ISO 12944-6 Im3 High
(including hydrojetted substrate)

PPG SIGMASHIELD 880 outperforms other industry-leading products in key ASTM and ISO performance tests.
