Chrysler Approves PPG’s Low-VOC Etch Primers

PPG’s new SX1071 and Nexa Autocolor P565-9880 Etch Primers have received approval by Chrysler Group, LLC., for warranty repairs on its vehicles. SX1071 is a low-VOC, two-component acid etch primer specifically designed to provide adhesion and corrosion resistance to properly prepared steel and aluminum surfaces while offering fast dry characteristics. It is part of the PPG OneChoice product line. P565-9880 has comparable properties and is compatible with the Nexa Autocolor product line.

The approval was granted following a series of wide-ranging tests and evaluations to ensure SX1071 and P565-9880 meet Chrysler’s rigorous quality standards. With the approval, SX1071 and P565-9880, become part of an extensive list of other Chrysler-approved PPG coatings from the Global Refinish System, Deltron and Nexa Autocolor lines.

“Meeting the high quality and durability benchmarks Chrysler demands is challenging,” said Kevin Loop, PPG OEM business development manager. “We appreciate their recognition of our products’ capabilities and are proud to live up to Chrysler’s expectations. SX1071 and P565-9880 will help collision repair and refinish centers deliver vehicle finishes equal in appearance to the OEM finish.”

SX1071 and P565-9880 are both 5.5 pounds-per-gallon VOC products that are compliant with the low-VOC auto refinish regulations in California. Canada will put similar regulations into effect in 2010. Both products also feature a fast dry formula, are chromate free and secure adhesion to most metal substrates.

OneChoice is PPG’s universal ancillary brand of specialty products designed to be used with any PPG automotive coatings system.
