PPG Expands UV Primer System
June 26, 2019—PPG has expanded its PPG ONECHOICE UV primer system to include a handheld ultraviolet LED cure light designed to provide a speedier solution.
Technicians can complete spot refinish repairs in two to three minutes, boosting cycle-time performance and productivity in shops. The expanded system uses PPG advanced aerosol technology – SUA1080 UV primer and SXA1081 UV primer cleaner – along with the new light and UV protective glasses and gloves.
The SUA1080 UV primer, which is a “shake and spray” product that requires no mixing, is quickly ready for sanding when used with the new handheld UV LED cure light. The light makes the curing process more effective and convenient compared to a fixed-position lamp. In addition, the SXA1081 primer cleaner allows a technician to quickly clean the cured primer before sanding. The end result is that there is no waste, pot life issues and spray gun cleaning, the company said.
The PPG OneChoice system works over properly cleaned steel, aluminum, fiberglass, galvanized steel, polyester body filler, and rigid and semi-rigid plastic except for polyethylene (PE) and polystyrene (PS).
