Ford Motor Company recently approved the AWX waterborne refinish system from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. for collision repair centers on a global basis. The AWX system has undergone the extensive technical certification process to meet the Ford WSS-M2P100-D standard. The Ford Group sets this technical standard to assure that its vehicles are repaired using automotive refinish products of the highest quality.
Sherwin-Williams recently introduced AWX, an innovative waterborne basecoat/clearcoat system that uses a proprietary resin system that behaves like the solvent-borne systems of today. Unlike solvent-borne basecoats of the past, AWX ensures up to a 50 percent reduction in VOC emissions and also reduces hazardous waste generation, the company says.
