Ford Motor Company gives technical approval to Sherwin-Williams' AWX waterborne paint system

By Tim Wright

Published April 9, 2008
Ford Motor Company recently approved the AWX waterborne refinish system from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. for collision repair centers on a global basis. The AWX system has undergone the extensive technical certification process to meet the Ford WSS-M2P100-D standard. The Ford Group sets this technical standard to assure that its vehicles are repaired using automotive refinish products of the highest quality.

"Sherwin Williams has continually demonstrated excellent performance in testing to our rigid paint specifications," said Gerry Bonanni, Ford Motor Company. "The new AWX system offers our Ford, Lincoln and Mercury dealerships an excellent option for this dynamic refinish solution."

For compliance without complications, Sherwin-Williams recently introduced AWX, an innovative waterborne basecoat/clearcoat system that utilizes a proprietary resin system that behaves like the solvent borne systems of today, according to the company.

"We're delighted that the Ford Motor Company has recognized AWX as a premium waterborne solution," said Jason Crager, OEM account executive, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. "Our goal in launching this product was to ease the fears and concerns body shop owners have in changing from a solvent to a waterborne system. Because AWX has solvent borne-like application properties, it ensures a seamless transition and conversion. Technicians will be familiar and comfortable with the process already, requiring minimal training and start-up costs."
