2. PPG’s Low-VOC Matte & Semi-Gloss Clearcoat
PPG has announced the launch of its 2.1 Low VOC Matte and Semi-Gloss Clearcoats for use with the Envirobase high-performance basecoat system in the United States and Canada. Comprised of two premium-quality 2K acrylic urethane clears, the system can reproduce a range of gloss levels—making it ideal for performing refinish repairs on low-gloss finishes. “Our new system specifically addresses the collision center’s need to perform accurate small or large refinish repairs of low-gloss finishes with our waterborne basecoat system,” Nicole Sinclair, PPG brand manager, collision, automotive refinish, says. “Users will appreciate the smooth, exceptionally durable finish this low-gloss clearcoat system offers.” EC5515 Low VOC Matte Clear and EC5517 Low VOC Semi-Gloss Clear offer the versatility of being used alone or mixed together to more precisely reproduce the OE finish, especially when adjustments are needed to match a range of gloss levels. Mixing formulas are available before topcoating in five gloss levels: flat, matte, eggshell, satin, and semigloss. Easy to prep and apply, the system features a simple 3:1:1 mix ratio and requires no Flexibilizer for plastic substrates.
