Enter the Metaverse with HMG Paints at DSEI2023

22 August 2023

HMG Paints, the UK’s leading independent paint manufacturer, is inviting visitors to the DSEI exhibition to visit their stand and enter the Metaverse. The company, which will be located in Hall 4 Stand H4-518, will have an eXtended Reality (XR) Spray Painting Simulator where visitors can put their skills to the test.

The fully immersive Metaverse environment provides users with a clear perception of depth, distance, angles, machine settings and more to develop their spraying technique. The simulator provided by Skillveri is a next generation approach and complements and enriches traditional industrial painting training with higher efficiency and accuracy in a fun and safe environment.

Along with practicing their painting technique, visitors to the HMG stand at DSEI will be able to chat with the HMG technical support staff in attendance about their exact requirements for defence paints and coatings.

HMG has a large portfolio of paints and coatings which are linked to various Def Stans and NSNs and understand how complex it can be to find the right product. However, the team at DSEI will be able to help individuals and companies identify the correct paint for their project, be that CARC and IRR coatings or something more bespoke.

“We’re looking forward to meeting the attendees at DSEI and welcome them to the stand to discuss how HMG can assist with paint requirements and provide technical support and advice” added Josh Taylor, HMG Defence Technical Sales. “We’ve built up some fantastic partnerships over the last few years and looking to develop more during DSEI and welcome people onto the HMG stand to test their painting skills.”

Earlier in 2023 HMG completed their registration on JOSCAR, meaning it’s now even easier for companies to purchase their Made in Britain accredited products. As a British-based manufacturer, HMG can provide fast delivery across its entire range, something which the company believes can benefit businesses who use JOSCAR and other OEMs and refinishers.

“As a British SME, we can manufacture and deliver products fast and now with JOSCAR accreditation we can do it even faster by removing pre-qualification and reducing procurement timescales” commented Alan Sharples, HMG Defence Sales Manager. “Being able to supply defence coatings fast and back that up with market leading technical support is something we’re exceptionally proud of.”

JOSCAR is recognised by some of the largest purchasers in the defence community such as BAE Systems, Babcock, Boeing, Leidos, Leonardo QinetiQ, Raytheon, Rolls Royce and the Ministry of Defence (MOD). It is used a single repository for pre-qualification and compliance information to determine if a supplier is “fit for business”.

Both Alan Sharples and Josh Taylor will be available on the DSEI MeetMe App to schedule meetings with throughout the exhibition but if you’d like to book ahead you can do so by emailing [email protected]. Alternatively, the team will be on stand H4-518 throughout the exhibition for any visitors who want to visit and speak to the team.

The HMG Defence range offers products which are free from Chrome VI, meet low VOC requirements, IRR and CARC paints and includes military standards such as 80-225.  Alongside Defence Standard products, HMG produces a wide range of approved high-quality coatings for practically every purpose for the defence industry.

HMG’s product range is suitable for equipment such as containers, trailers, vehicles, bridges and armour. HMG is renowned for its innovative approach to coatings including corrosion resistant primers, functional topcoats approved to UK defence standards. If you can’t find the perfect product in their existing portfolio the company is also able to offer bespoke formulation development to solve those tricky paints and coatings problems.
