New PPG and Nexa Autocolor Products Receive GM Approval


A new line of PPG and Nexa Autocolor low-VOC clears, primers and sealers have received North American approval by General Motors for warranty repairs on its vehicles. The products are designed specifically for use with Envirobase High Performance or Nexa Autocolor Aquabase Plus waterborne basecoats.

Each product was subjected to comprehensive testing to ensure it met GM’s quality standard known in the industry as Specification GMW15406, PPG says.

The approvals cover several product lines including PPG’s EC700 series clears, ECP10 series primers and ECS20/ECS60 series sealers. Also approved are Nexa Autocolor P190-6759/6790 clears, P565-314x/312x sealers and P565-540x primers. Intended as “one-visit clears,” EC700 series and Nexa Autocolor P190-6759/6790 eliminate the long flash times between coats, reducing cycle time with no compromise on the quality and appearance required by high-production shops.


“Not only do these products have exceptional performance properties that typify PPG, they also reduce the negative impact on the environment by further lowering VOC emissions,” said Bob Hiser, GM lead service engineer. “We’re pleased to add them to the list of our other GM-approved PPG products.”

PPG’s D8113 matte clearcoat has also received GM approval. Instead of using a flattening agent to achieve low gloss with existing clears, D8113 was specially formulated as a matte finish to meet the growing trends of OEMs.
