PPG launches new waterborne midcoat

July 7, 2011

July 7, 2011 — PPG Automotive Refinish on Thursday introduced a new Vibrance Collection midcoat designed for use with its Envirobase High Performance and Aquabase Plus basecoat systems.

PPG said the product, VWM5556, allows painters to take full advantage of custom colors, special-effect colorants and pigments available in the Vibrance Collection.

“The new midcoat is one more component in a complete waterborne system,” said Steve Lehner, PPG product manager. “VWM5556 is a major advancement for custom car builders as it allows for the development and use of exotic pigments that were previously available only in solvent form.”

The midcoat can also add depth and a distrinctive appearance when be used as transparent protection over special custom graphics, according to PPG. For more information on the product, go to ppgrefinish.com or call 800.647.6050.
