The future of Water Borne paint

The future of Water Borne paint and our system.As of Oct 1, 2009, all of the Bay Area North to Cloverdale is required to switch to Water Borne paint, We decided to go with PPG’s Envirobase paint system for several reasons
One of the most important reasons is that this system has been around since 1999 in Europe and Canada and has been proven with great results. The durability of the paint are superb, Auto Body and More did several in house tests before we committed to use this system.
  • solvent resistant       707584auto use'sEnvirobase
  • Scratch resistant
  • Pressure resistant    
  • Adhesion                       
  • Application
  • Blend panel    
  • Cure/dry time  
  • Color Match
  • fuel resistant test
All these test were done in a controlled environment(Spray Booth) under several different conditions. The reason why we decided to use several different conditions is that your car, truck or motorcycle is not always kept in a prefect environment, It gets rained on snowed on sun beats down on it and so on.We are happy with the results.
  Now remember you still can use solvent primers and under coats and solvent clears but they do have to meet the VOC’s in your area. Auto Body and More does not mix match primers, sealers or clears with other paint manufactures. We strictly use what is recommended by PPG. Mix matching under coats, base coats and clears could result in array of paint issues including clear peel back, blistering, color fade, modeling, pin holes in the clear, Solvent popping, low adhesion properties, shrinking of the primer and sealer, shrinking of the clear, Low gloss of the clear (does not shine).
  Another reason we went with PPG is that their clears are one of the best on the market for durability and longevity
with excellent shine, scratch resistant, gas resistant, great adhesion properties and we just keep winning car and motorcycle show’s! 
Make sure the Auto body shop you choose use’s quality paint products, as the end result of your repair could be sacrificed.
