GM Gives Global Approval to Sherwin-Williams’ Air-Dry Clearcoat

General Motors (GM) has approved, on a global basis, the HPC21 clearcoat with Air Dry Technology from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. (SWAFC). SWAFC says HPC21 has undergone an extensive certification process to meet GM’s standards for vehicles repaired at its dealerships.
The 2.1 VOC HPC21, part of the SWAFC HP Process, features Air Dry Technology and is a clearcoat designed for a range of speed applications from single to multi-panel repairs.

“HPC21 offers a very fast cycle time and does not require the use of high temperature bake cycle, which allows for increased productivity and energy savings,” said Gordon Gibson, senior chemist with General Motors.

“We’re pleased that General Motors has recognized HPC21 as a premium clearcoat solution,” said Jason Crager, SWAFC OEM Business Development manager. “Along with our HPC15 Clearcoat, we believe HPC21 offers two solutions for collision centers:  to increase productivity and profitability while saving energy costs.”
