PPG Automotive Refinish has launched P190-6930 Performance Clearcoat. The new 2.1 clearcoat is intended specifically for use with PPG’s waterborne AQUABASE Plus basecoat. It’s designed for high-production collision centers, and PPG states that it provides “excellent throughput and impressive gloss retention.”
P190-6930 features PPG’s resin technology engineered for waterborne basecoats, making it the appropriate solution for shops seeking a low-VOC production clear. Used with Aquabase Plus basecoat, a vital part of PPG’s NEXA AUTOCOLOR refinish system, PPG states that P190-6930 delivers the “high-quality results and efficient cycle time performance progressive collision centers require.”
“PPG is very pleased to offer our customers this advanced low-VOC clearcoat,” said Tim Jones, PPG waterborne segment manager. “P190-6930 is exactly what collision centers want in a performance clearcoat: it’s easy to apply, it enhances productivity and it consistently provides an outstanding finish. Paint technicians will be able to take great pride in their work and will appreciate how reliably this clear performs.”
P190-6930 enhances throughput with quick air-dry and bake cycle times – four hours and 25 minutes, respectively. With four reducer options, the clearcoat adapts to a wide range of operating temperatures and humidity conditions. In addition, it can be buffed in less than one hour after cooldown if required.
