PPG announced the introduction of PPG Delfleet One™ paint system to the US and Canadian markets. This complete and compact line of advanced coatings is specially formulated to address the demanding refinish needs of the commercial transportation industry. PPG engineered these next-generation coatings to deliver outstanding color matching, ease of use, increased productivity and the commercial transportation industry’s lowest volatile organic compound emissions for a premium paint system with full color capability.

The PPG Delfleet One paint system includes undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats. It features 57% fewer VOC emissions compared to a traditional paint system, ensuring compliance with regulations in all regions of North America.

Mr JJ Wirth, PPG segment manager, commercial coatings, US and Canada said that “The PPG Delfleet One paint system is a major technological advance and the direct result of PPG asking the people who matter – fleet operators, truck body builders, repair facility painters and others who work with these types of products every day what they wanted in a premium paint system. We believe our customers will appreciate the product capabilities and productivity boost offered by the most environmentally progressive premium system in the commercial transportation original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and repair markets.”

The PPG Delfleet One paint system includes the latest aluminum and pearl pigments to provide full color capability for direct gloss, basecoat and matte colors, all of which have a VOC of 1.5 pounds per gallon. The system’s clearcoats and primers have a VOC of 2.0 or less pounds per gallon.

The compact paint system has 42 toners, four binders and four paint additives, efficiently reducing on-hand inventory requirements yet providing the resources needed to address all refinish or OEM work.

The entire system is supported by PPG’s extensive color database that expands as new colors, special mixes and variant formulas emerge. It uses the exclusive PPG Delfleet One Tint Guide and PPG Delfleet One Color Deck, which houses thousands of OEM color chips and variants arranged chromatically. The system also ensures accurate color match through PPG’s cutting-edge color tools that include the RAPIDMATCH® XI spectrophotometer, TOUCHMIX® XI computer and PAINTMANAGER® XI software.

Mr Wirth added that “The tools that support the PPG Delfleet One paint system make color selection and matching accuracy much easier. Painters can rest assured that the system’s ‘what you see is what you’ll spray’ approach precisely matches commercial vehicle colors. All our color tools are supported by the PPG Color Matching Laboratory, which is exclusively dedicated to accurately matching commercial vehicle colors.”
