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 offered on such vehicles as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Fiat and Lamborghini.
“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,” said Nicole Sinclair, PPG brand manager, collision, automotive refinish. “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 Semi-Gloss.
Easy to prep and apply, the system features a simple 3:1:1 mix ratio and requires no flexibilizer for plastic substrates.
