EC550 incorporates PPG’s advanced resin technology that is used in the market-leading EC530 En-V Performance Clearcoat. The En-V technology contributes to a superior appearance, thanks to exceptional gloss retention and excellent flow and leveling qualities—properties that are critical for delivering premium original equipment manufacturer-level (OEM-level) finishes.
EC550 is easy to use, with the same hardener/reducer combination as for EC530 En-V Performance Clearcoat using a simple 3-to-1-to-1 mix ratio. Refinish technicians will find that EC550 can be sprayed successfully in all application conditions, including extreme temperatures and humidity, according to Tim Jones of PPG, and no polishing is required. In addition, EC550 En-V Ultra Gloss is compliant for all refinish markets in North America.
“We’ve given EC550 En-V Ultra Gloss all the attributes PPG customers have asked for,” said Jones, automotive refinish segment manager. “It’s production-friendly, easy to apply, and yields an unmatched luxurious gloss. It’s exactly what a premium Envirobase High Performance clearcoat should be.”
