More collision centers in the National Rule areas of North America than in low-VOC (volatile organic compound) regulated areas are now using waterborne products by PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) automotive refinish business, according to Tim Jones, PPG waterborne segment manager. Of the more than 9,000 collision centers in the U.S. and Canada using PPG waterborne products, more than half are located in areas not required to meet current lower VOC limits. Such limits are in place in California, Delaware and all of Canada, and they will soon be implemented in Maryland, Utah and other U.S. regions.

Regulated (compliant) regions require collision centers to use low-VOC refinish products, and PPG’s waterborne basecoats were introduced to serve these markets. While collision centers outside the low-VOC regions have more latitude in using traditional solventborne products, a significant number of shops have chosen to convert to ENVIROBASE® High Performance and AQUABASE® Plus waterborne systems by PPG even though there is no obligation for them to do so.

“The wave of conversions has been remarkable,” Jones said. “In areas not restricted by current or impending low-VOC compliance standards, more collision centers apparently understand the value and quality of PPG products and service. They are making the change as a matter of preference. They realize PPG is not just a great waterborne option it’s a great overall option.”

Jones attributed the success of PPG’s waterborne products to factors such as product quality, ease of use, superior color match and PPG’s highly effective CONVERT WITH CONFIDENCE® conversion process. “Change can be difficult, and switching to waterborne is one of the most important decisions a shop can make," he said. "Customers are discovering that our unique process makes the conversion simple. And once a shop has converted, it can capitalize on the advantages and benefits PPG waterborne provides over solvent for color match, ease of use and productivity.”

PPG debuted its waterborne technology to the automotive OEM (original equipment manufacturer) market in 1986. In 1992 it introduced the world's first commercialized automotive refinish waterborne basecoat, and in 2006 PPG launched its third-generation and current waterborne technology, as found in the Envirobase High Performance and Aquabase Plus brands. Continuing the company’s innovation leadership in waterborne technology, PPG recently added a new waterborne primer surfacer and has more related products on the way.
