The PPG Repaint Reporter is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, making it one of the automotive refinish industry’s longest-running publications. The magazine is circulated to PPG Automotive Refinish distributors and users throughout North America.
The Repaint Reporter was first published in 1936, debuting at a time when the introduction of the spray gun and alkyd enamels contributed to significant advancements in paint application and drying times and automobile color and gloss surfaced as critical product differentiators. As the repair of auto finishes took on greater importance and the need for technical information grew, the Repaint Reporter stepped in to fill the need, PPG says.
The Repaint Reporter has evolved through the years, expanding its content and coverage to include all aspects of refinish repair as well as the custom color and commercial coatings segments of the industry.
“In many ways, the changing nature of the Repaint Reporter has mirrored the ever-changing nature of our industry,” said Cristina Fronzaglia, PPG Automotive Refinish communications manager and Repaint Reporter executive editor. “Yet, its guiding mission to ensure the distributors and users of PPG products are well-informed and up-to-date has never changed.”
