GM Approves PPG D8152 Clearcoat and DL V800X Surfacers for Warranty Repairs

General Motors has approved PPG’s new D8152 Performance + Glamour Clearcoat and the DLV800X series of a-chromatic primer surfacers for worldwide use in warranty refinish repairs. The two products, part of the PPG Global Refinish System, meet GM’s quality standard known as Specification GMW15406 and join a long list of GM-approved PPG coatings from the PPG and Nexa Autocolor paint lines, including Deltron and the new Envirobase High Performance and Aquabase Plus.  

“PPG has worked very hard to meet GM’s high standards of quality and durability and we appreciate their recognition,” said Kevin Loop, PPG OEM business development manager. “GM dealers and their authorized repair and refinish facilities will be able to use these coatings for warranty work with the confidence they’ll be able to deliver a finish comparable in appearance to the original OEM vehicle finish.”

D8152 is designed for use over Global BC and Envirobase High Performance basecoats and complements  D8150, Global Performance Clearcoat.

The DLV800X series consists of three premium-level a-chromatic surfacers – white, black and gray – which can be mixed to achieve the desired gray tone. These surfacers offer excellent adhesion, film build, surface leveling and gloss holdout over a wide range of substrates, PPG says.
