With A Touch Of Class Auto Body concern for the environment we have taken another step to be environmentally friendly,converting from PPG solvent based paints to PPG's Envirobase ® High Performance waterborne system. Initially introduced in 1999 to meet low VOC legislation, the ENVIROBASE® High Performance system is now the leading premium waterborne paint system in North America. Delivering everything our high-production collision center needs, the Envirobase High Performance waterborne system achieves outstanding color match for today’s OEM finishes and provides easy to use products which helps in improving our vehicle completion times. Envirobase High Performance products are not only included in the PPG Paint Performance Guarantee—they are also backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal.
Providing less odor in the work environment and improved air quality are a few of the environmentally progressive advantages PPG waterborne holds over conventional solvent-based systems. Yet it does so without sacrificing color-matching capability and performance. With the PPG waterborne system, our shop now use approximately 25 percent less sprayable base, and 70-90 percent less reducer. The potential material savings is 25-30 percent! By convertingto waterborne we now generate up to 75 percent less hazardous waste than what was generated using solvent basecoat.
