PPG announced the introduction of its Delfleet One paint system to the US and Canadian markets. This complete and compact line of advanced coatings is formulated to address the refinish needs of the commercial transportation industry.
PPG engineered these next-generation coatings to deliver outstanding colour-matching, ease of use, increased productivity and the commercial transportation industry’s lowest volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions for a premium paint system with full colour capability.
The PPG Delfleet One paint system includes undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats. It features 57 percent fewer VOC emissions compared to a traditional paint system, ensuring compliance with regulations in all regions of North America.
“The PPG Delfleet One paint system is a major technological advance and the direct result of PPG asking the people who matter – fleet operators, truck body builders, repair facility painters and others who work with these types of products every day – what they wanted in a premium paint system,” said J.J. Wirth, PPG segment manager, commercial coatings, U.S. and Canada.
“We believe our customers will appreciate the product capabilities and productivity boost offered by the most environmentally progressive premium system in the commercial transportation original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and repair markets.”
The PPG Delfleet One paint system includes the latest aluminium and pearlescent pigments to provide full colour capability for direct gloss, basecoat and matte colours, all of which have a VOC of 1.5 pounds per gallon. The system’s clearcoats and primers have a VOC of 2.0 or less pounds per gallon.
The compact paint system has 42 toners, four binders and four paint additives, efficiently reducing on-hand inventory requirements yet providing the resources needed to address all refinish or OEM work.
