“We are very excited to be associated with the new Lexus LFA supercar,” said Ron Thomas, OEM and EMEA technical marketing manager for PPG. “Toyota’s approval of our clearcoat is a major achievement and something to be proud of. Matte finishes are becoming increasingly popular in both luxury and mainstream automotive markets. This latest endorsement confirms PPG’s commitment to developing innovative, world-class products that address industry trends, while providing body shops with high-quality, easy-to-use repair solutions.”
