PPG has announced its custom refinish painting class schedule for April, May and June. Custom painting classes cover a variety of creative topics and are held at PPG Business Development Centers throughout the United States. The classes are part of PPG’s overall commitment to training and are designed to help technicians skillfully use PPG products to create imaginative custom paint finishes for cars and trucks.

Classes are offered for paint technicians at all levels — professionals, custom builders, hobbyists and others — and are led by expert instructors. The classes include lectures, Q&A sessions, informal discussions and hands-on experience in the spray booth.

Classes are designed to keep PPG customers at the leading edge of industry developments, design trends and paint techniques. This quarter’s classes include lowrider design instruction and automotive restoration seminars.
Lowrider design covers trends in paint schemes, colors and techniques for creating special effects such as tape shading and lace painting.
Restoration seminars address the challenges involved in the automotive restoration process. Topics highlight PPG techniques and products for successfully prepping and painting bare metal, blasted steel, plastic parts and body filler.
Comprehensive instruction in custom painting courses also covers surface preparation, the selection and proper use of the PPG undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats for different types of projects and paint application best practices.
Custom classes focus on several PPG brands including VIBRANCE COLLECTION® products and their compatibility with PPG solvent-borne and waterborne offerings such as the DELTRON® and ENVIROBASE® High Performance systems.
