PPG Launches NEXA AUTOCOLOR Advanced Clearcoat P190-6920
The launch of P190-6920 Production Clearcoat marks a significant advance in automotive refinish technology,” said Tim Jones, PPG Manager, Water Collision Segment, Automotive Refinish.
“We’ve formulated this premium clearcoat to match perfectly with Aquabase Plus and deliver the exceptional finishes PPG customers expect. Collision centres incorporating P190-6920 into their system will appreciate the fast process times and energy-saving qualities that can increase productivity and provide consistently beautiful results.”
Jones added that P190-6920 allows easy application by utilizing the same hardener and thinners as the popular Nexa Autocolor clearcoats P190-6930 and P190-6950. Further, he noted that P190-6920 allows exceptional throughput on repairs up to four panels, with a minimal bake time of just 20 minutes.
The clearcoat features an energy-saving lower force-dry temperature of 120°F (48.8° C) and is designed to save time in the booth: Panels coated with P190-6920 can be reassembled after an air-dry period of 90 minutes to two hours. The process ultimately yields an excellent appearance out of bake, with no polishing required and superb gloss retention.
