Made in Britain

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.

One of the many products the team is sure to be discussing is their new 2 pack Polyurethane primer system which surpasses the requirements of Def Stan 80 – 225 for land-based military equipment. The DEF2301001 Light Grey Polyurethane Primer boasts an impressive capability to endure over 2,000 hours in BS EN ISO 9227 salt spray conditions, making it a standout performer in demanding, high-stress environments.

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 and, 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.

HMG is also JOSCAR certified, which means Primes can speed up their access to HMG’s defence portfolio, and all products are also Made in Britain certified. 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.
