STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – PPG Automotive Refinish has introduced DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear with superfast air dry capability to the collision center market. The new clearcoat, part of the PPG Deltron® line of products, marks another significant advancement in refinish technology.

This new clear offers impressive application characteristics that make it an ideal choice for collision centers aiming for increased levels of productivity without compromising quality or performance.
“This is an exceptionally user-friendly clearcoat,” said Jeff Griffin, manager, PPG collision segment, North America. “We’ve taken clearcoat no-bake technology and advanced it to create a PPG clearcoat appropriate for any type of collision center—from high-production shops to the smaller operations without baking capabilities. Not only will DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear air dry to an outstanding gloss in 20-25 minutes, it is very easy to apply and work with.”
“DC2000 Ultra Velocity Clear requires no flash time between coats and no baking in the refinish process, which optimizes spray booth utilization,” adds Griffin. “Due to the extremely fast out-of-dust time, a vehicle can be removed from the booth in as little as 10 minutes.”
The superfast air dry capability of this wet-on-wet clearcoat facilitates exceptionally fast cycle times for single- and multi-panel repairs. The new clearcoat also helps reduce energy costs with its ability to bypass the baking cycle.
