PPG Commercial Coatings has launched Delfleet Essential Basecoat, a 3.5 VOC basecoat designed to complement the Delfleet product line and increase its capabilities. The new basecoat is intended for value-conscious fleet refinishers, OEMs and collision centers aiming for greater productivity, more efficiency and ease of use. The basecoat is recommended for overall color repair, refurbishing and when striping is required.

“With the addition of the basecoat to our product lineup, we are giving our customers a high-quality, value-priced option for their work,” said J.J. Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. “We wanted this basecoat to be just as easy to use as a single-stage topcoat—and it is; very little training time is needed. It’s also durable and has an attractive price point. I think our customers will be as pleased with it as we are.”

Delfleet Essential Basecoat provides enhanced durability the company said. When used with ESC621 clearcoat, a three-year warranty is offered. In addition PPG said the new basecoat features faster dry speeds than single-stage topcoats to help shops increase productivity and efficiency. The fast dry times make it ideal for two-tone jobs or striping. Since the basecoat is mixed from the same color formula as the single-stage, lower shop inventory is possible.

The new basecoat also expands the product line’s color palette. Delfleet Essential now has pearl color capability as a basecoat, which must be clearcoated with ESC621, along with solids and metallic colors. To keep the Delfleet Essential line efficient and to keep mixing easy, both the new basecoat and single-stage topcoats can be mixed from the same ESSS color formula. The ESSS color is mixed with a new basecoat converter and new hardener. The decision to mix a color as a single-stage or basecoat is made when the paint technician is ready to spray.
