New paint guide for Defence Coatings launched by HMG

HMG Paints, the UK’s leading independent paint manufacturer, has launched its new Defence Coating brochure. The brochure which launched at DVD 2022 held at UTAC Millbrook, offers a complete guide to HMG’s range of over 100 paints and coatings for use on military vehicles and equipment, including Def Stan 80-225.

However, the major feature of the guide is that it features a full list of paint related NSN’s and breaks them down so they are easy to understand.  The new brochure and the HMG Technical Support service is all aimed to take the hassle out of identifying and sourcing the correct products for Defence projects.

Easy to identify paint requirements with NSN Numbers
“We’ve designed the guide to help take the hassle out of identifying which paint OEM’s, refinishers and other users need, be that via Def Stan references or NSN numbers.” Commented Josh Taylor, HMG Paints Defence Technical Support. “During DVD 2022 exhibition we had numerous people visit the stand who were struggling to find the right product and order codes and we were able to provide them a guide and help them quickly identify the correct product.”

For those who missed out on a copy of the guide at DVD 2022 you can email to request a copy. Alternatively you can contact the HMG team directly to ask a question about HMG’s paint range and technical support services.

“The DVD2022 show gave personnel within the defence industry the chance to discuss paint and coatings technical requirements directly with us and after the COVID pandemic it was fantastic to be back at in person events” added Josh. “At HMG We want to be a true partner within the industry and that includes offering product advice, technical support and fast delivery of products. Over the last few years we’ve built some very strong relationships across the industry and we’re very proud to be supporting companies on some exciting projects.”  

Defence Coatings Delivered Fast

As a British based manufacturer HMG can provide fast delivery across its entire range, something which has become increasingly important to its customer base over the last few years.
