Sherwin-Williams' Planet Color Custom Colors Now Available in Waterborne Basecoat

November 4, 2010

Planet Color is now available with the Sherwin-Williams AWX Waterborne Basecoat.

Planet Color custom automotive paints are now available throughout North America in a low VOC system. Planet Color is now available with the Sherwin-Williams AWX Waterborne Basecoat so it behaves just like the latest, most-effective solventborne systems on the market, the company said.

With the introduction of PCWC6 Waterborne mid-coat mixing clear with dye concentrates, colors for the Planet Color Waterborne system can be found in its special color selector (AS2615) to create a high quality, custom finish when painting in VOC restricted areas.

Planet Color custom paints are a system of custom automotive colors developed by Sherwin-Williams, which utilize the latest high-quality pigments and dye concentrates for a new appearance. Planet Color includes optically enhanced additives in a two- or three-stage application process and has been a tremendous success among custom automotive enthusiasts, painters and shop owners alike for several years.

Planet Color offers multi-dimensional finishes that are color shifting, iridescent, illuminated and shimmering in their texture; its finishes offer durability and limitless color possibilities, and its two- and three-coat applications boast results limited only by the imagination.

With Planet Color, custom painters can save their own custom formulations within the Sherwin-Williams FormulaExpress online color formula retrieval system for a future exact formula match reference. Custom painters also have the ability to mix as little, or as much Planet Color paint as needed specific to their customization projects.
