Technology delivers increased throughput performance, reduced cycle times

PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced the launch of PPG ENVIROBASE® ECP35 2.1 VOC High Production Surfacer for the U.S. and Canadian automotive refinish markets.

Developed for use with the PPG Envirobase High Performance waterborne system, the premium quality, high-build primer surfacer is fast drying, providing time and cost savings as well for body shops. It also produces a sustainability benefit by reducing the amount of volatile organic compounds released into the air.

“Our latest advanced primer surfacer offers easy sandability and quick-dry efficiency – all of which contribute to excellent throughput performance and reduced cycle times,” said Nicole Sinclair, PPG brand manager, collision, automotive refinish. “PPG Envirobase ECP352.1 VOC High Production Surfacer is ideal for today’s production-minded shops.”

Compatible with current PPG Envirobase reducers and undercoat hardeners, the new primer surfacer is ready to sand after one hour of air drying or 15 minutes of force drying. It also offers excellent film build, surface leveling and gloss retention.

“This is a great addition to the PPG Envirobase® High Performance system, which is the leading premium waterborne paint system in North America,” Sinclair said. “It provides our customers with a suite of sustainable undercoats and clearcoats that integrate flawlessly with its advanced waterborne basecoat, providing best-in-class color accuracy and durability.”
