General Motors has given global approval for use of select PPG clearcoats for warranty repairs on its vehicles. The approved products include PPG’s Nexa Autocolor P190-6800 HS Express Clearcoat, Envirobase High Performance EC800 Ultra Fast 2.1 Clearcoat and Deltron DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clearcoat.
P190-6800 HS Express Clearcoat is a 2.1 VOC air-dry compliant clearcoat designed for use with the PPG Aquabase Plus waterborne refinish system that offers productivity, durability and a high-quality final appearance, according to the company. The clearcoat is formulated to eliminate the need for flash time between coats, spraybooth heat time and cool-down before polishing, thereby reducing total process time.
EC800 Ultra Fast 2.1 Clearcoat is also a 2.1 VOC air-dry clearcoat that shortens refinish cycle times while delivering premium quality finishes. Requiring no flash time between coats, it dries dust-free in as little as 10 minutes and does not require any time baking in the paint booth.
Deltron DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clearcoat is a versatile clearcoat suited for use with the Deltron DBC, Global Refinish System and Envirobase High Performance basecoats. It also is a quick-drying clearcoat that requires no flash time between coats and no baking in the refinish process. It provides a high-quality gloss and final appearance in about 25 minutes.
Each product underwent comprehensive testing to ensure it met General Motors’ rigorous quality standards.
