Types of waterborne acrylic coatings for use on steel

What types of waterborne acrylic coatings are commercially available for use on steel?

There are a number of different types of industrial coatings available that are based on waterborne acrylics. Anti-corrosive primers designed for direct application to prepared steel surfaces are usually formulated with inhibitive pigments to aid in long term corrosion protection.
Topcoats are available in a range of sheen from flat to high gloss. A special class of coatings that are designed to act as both the primer and finish coat are also available, as designated as DTM (direct-to-metal) coatings.

Elastomeric coatings are formulated to be applied as surface-tolerant, thick film coatings which provide corrosion protection and flexibility. Waterborne acrylic wash primers are meant to act as a thin film tie-coats between substrates that are difficult for adhesion (such as galvanized) and successive coats.
Two-component coatings based on acrylic/epoxy crosslinked systems are used for both industrial maintenance and interior institutional coatings, where greater chemical resistance is required.
