PPG Expands Vibrance Collection Lineup

Addition of a custom midcoat and a custom clear has created a complete custom automotive refinish system solution.


PPG’s latest additions – a custom midcoat and a custom clear – to its lineup of Vibrance Collection custom paint finishes have created a complete custom automotive refinish system solution. The additions, along with two established and highly effective primers, have enhanced the Vibrance Collection brand and work together to open up imaginative refinish possibilities.

VWM500 Custom Midcoat is a solvent-borne, VOC-compliant product formulated exclusively for application over PPG waterborne basecoats. It allows painters to use Vibrance Collection special-effect pigments and dyes to seamlessly create multiple color layers including custom candies, micas or pearl midcoat layers. VWM500 is particularly effective when the custom finish is created over an extended period of time or when there’s a need to isolate graphics.

VC5700 DITZLER Custom Clear is specifically designed for custom shops. It’s a high-build, easy-to-apply urethane clearcoat that provides a deep, high-gloss appearance, perfect for a show-quality finish. VC5700 fills tape lines and graphics, has vertical hold and is easy to polish. It can also be used as a “lockdown” clear to protect and level graphics and provide a layer to sand prior to flow coating.

The Vibrance Collection primers, VP2050 DTM High-Build Primer and VP2100 Polyester Primer serve as foundations for custom or restoration projects. VP2050 is a direct-to-metal primer that delivers adhesion over properly prepared bare steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, fiberglass and existing coatings. VP2100 is a fast-drying, low-VOC primer for use over existing coatings, properly prepared steel and aluminum.

The Vibrance Collection offers a range of toners and dyes along with micas, flakes, crystals, and novelty effects that are compatible with the primers and the new midcoat and clearcoat. Vibrance Collection products are available through PPG distributors.

TEXA customers can now activate their AutoAuth account to easily unlock the SGW module on 2017+ Chrysler and Fiat vehicles.

The SGW acts as a firewall to block unauthorized access and manipulation of vehicle networks and vital systems. FCA says the SGW was developed not to restrict access to diagnostic data but rather to restrict “the ability of non-registered and non-authenticated users to perform intrusive diagnostics such as bi-directional controls.”  Beyond the prevention of bi-directional capability, which include calibrations, relearns and actuations, even the simple act of clearing a code is denied. TEXA previously provided an internal software paid service for SGA access, now migrating to the easier-to-manage AutoAuth authentication service.
