PPG adds new premium high build binder to Turbo Vision platform

PPG Refinish EMEA has introduced its new P650-1010 premium high build binder to the Nexa Autocolor Turbo Vision commercial transport range.

The fourth in a series of binders, PPG says this latest addition strengthens the next generation platform by providing a dedicated solution for sharp edges and complex shaped vehicles such as tipper trucks, tankers, road sweepers and car transporters.

While being a dedicated solution, PPG states it also benefits from being part of the compact, modular Turbo Vision paint system, which is designed to give its users flexibility and versatility across a wide variety of commercial vehicle applications.

Launched at the end of 2017 as a follow up to the highly regarded Nexa Autocolor EHS Turbo Plus paint line, Turbo Vision offers significant enhancements through innovation, process optimisation and colour excellence, according to PPG.

“The commercial transportation industry wants innovative products that deliver quality and productivity,” explains Ignasi Roig, marketing director CEMTA at PPG Automotive Refinish.

“Within the last three years customers all over Europe have confirmed that the simplification to a two-pack binder-toner system has made Nexa Autocolor’s product offer for commercial vehicles more user-friendly, highlighting as well the excellent colour accuracy and capability of the new platform.”

PPG says that this ongoing commitment to colour excellence and product innovation was key to launch the P650-1010 premium high build binder. With it, the company says commercial vehicle manufacturers and builders have the opportunity to achieve a high quality gloss finish, which on top offers excellent sharp edges and complex shapes coverage.

P650-1000 premium high build binder will remain the number one choice for commercial vehicle refinishers and refurbishers, according to PPG. It is suitable on vehicles with large flat surface areas such as vans, buses, coaches and cabs.

PPG says the P650-6000 premium matt binder empowers customers to create a full range of gloss levels, from deep matt to semi-gloss, if mixed with any of the two other premium binders.

It adds that beyond delivering superb finishes, both the premium high flow binder and premium high build binder help to maximise efficiency with fast-drying properties that reduce bake time and energy consumption while maintaining excellent hold-out.

Turbo Vision is also exceptionally hard after bake, PPG states, so parts can be installed immediately rather than waiting for the coating to cure overnight.
