PPG Hits 10,000-Shop Mark in Waterborne Conversions
Oct. 3, 2014—PPG announced on Thursday that more than 10,000 collision centers in Canada and the U.S. have converted to the company’s waterborne automotive refinish system.
A water-based finish, primer, and basecoat, PPG’s waterborne products are better for the environment as they meet low volatile organic compound (VOC) standards for the industry.
“Waterborne is not just a compliance solution anymore,” PPG waterborne segment manager Tim Jones said in a release. “More than 10,000 PPG customers in the U.S. and Canada see the value in superior color matching, excellent throughput and performance, consistent color mixes and other key qualities that our waterborne products provide. PPG has a long-standing commitment to the collision repair industry to deliver high-quality and time-saving products. ENVIROBASE High Performance and AQUABASE Plus products are easier to blend and apply; our customers appreciate this and see a real difference in their shops’ productivity.”
