PPG’s new SX1071 and Nexa Autocolor P565-9880 Etch Primers have been approved by General Motors for use in warranty repairs on its vehicles.
Part of the PPG OneChoice product line, SX1071 is a low-VOC, two-component acid etch primer specifically designed to provide adhesion and corrosion resistance to properly prepared steel and aluminum surfaces while offering fast dry characteristics, PPG says, while the P565-9880 has similar properties and is designed for use with the Nexa Autocolor product line.
“It’s very rewarding that suppliers like PPG continue to develop superior products that offer our customers high-quality repairs,” said Brian Dotterer, General Motors advanced material development manager.
The approval comes as a result of extensive testing and evaluation to ensure the products meet GM’s quality standard known as Specification GMW15406. SX1071 and P565-9880 now join other GM-approved PPG coatings from the Global Refinish System, Deltron and Nexa Autocolor lines.
“PPG is pleased to be able to meet the high quality and durability benchmarks GM demands,” said Kevin Loop, PPG OEM business development manager. “The SX1071 and P565-9880 approval covers all of GM’s vehicle brands. Fulfilling their refinish needs and living up to their expectations is something to be proud of.”
SX1071 and P565-9880 are both a 5.5 pounds-per-gallon VOC product compliant with the low-VOC auto refinish regulations in California. Similar regulations will go into effect in Canada in 2010. Both also feature a fast dry formula and secure adhesion to most metal substrates.
OneChoice is PPG’s universal ancillary brand of specialty products designed to be used with any PPG automotive, fleet or commercial performance coatings system.
