PPG launches Deltron DC2000
PPG Automotive Refinish has introduced DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear with superfast airdry capability to the collision center market. The new clearcoat is part of the PPG Deltron line of products. DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear is designed for use over Deltron DBC, Global Refinish System BC, and Envirobase High Performance basecoats. PPG has taken clearcoat no-bake technology and advanced it to create a PPG clearcoat appropriate for any type of collision center—from high-production shops to the smaller operations without baking capabilities. DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear will air dry in 20-25 minutes and it is very easy to apply and work with, the company said. DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear requires no flash time between coats and no baking in the refinish process, which optimizes spray booth utilization. Due to the extremely fast out-of-dust time, a vehicle can be removed from the booth in as little as 10 minutes. The superfast air dry capability of this wet-on-wet clearcoat facilitates fast cycle times for single- and multi-panel repairs. The new clearcoat also helps reduce energy costs with its ability to bypass the baking cycle.
