GM approves new AWX waterborne paint system

By Tim Wright

Published April 5, 2007
General Motors recently approved the AWX waterborne refinish system from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes for North American collision repair centers. The AWX system has undergone the extensive certification process to meet the GM4901M standard. GM sets this standard to assure that vehicles repaired at their dealerships use automotive refinish products of the highest quality.

SWAFC recently introduced AWX, a waterborne basecoat/clearcoat system. Utilizing a proprietary resin system that behaves like the solvent borne systems of today, AWX is designed to meet the strict VOC-emissions limits recently adopted in California, while adhering to the environmentally-friendly guidelines soon to be implemented in Canada and throughout the Midwest and Northeastern U.S.

AWX ensures up to a 50% reduction in VOC emissions while reducing hazardous waste generation, according to the company.
