PPG Introduces EC550 En-V® Ultra Gloss Clearcoat

EC550 Clearcoat PPG Industries Ultra Gloss Clearcoat


The Automotive Refinish business unit of PPG has launched EC550 En-V® Ultra Gloss Clearcoat, a new clearcoat formulated specifically for use with ENVIROBASE® High Performance waterborne basecoat.

According to PPG, the new clearcoat is designed for outstanding gloss and ease of use. It is intended for overalls and multi-panel applications and is the latest addition to the Envirobase High Performance clearcoat lineup.

EC550 incorporates PPG's advanced En-V resin technology that is used in EC530 En-V Performance Clearcoat. "The technology contributes to a superior appearance thanks to exceptional gloss retention and excellent flow and leveling qualities—properties that are critical for delivering premium OEM-level finishes," states PPG. 

EC550 utilizes the same hardener/reducer combination as EC530 En-V Performance Clearcoat with a simple 3:1:1 mix ratio. EC550 can be sprayed in all application conditions, including extreme temperatures and humidity, and no polishing is required. Additionally, EC550 En-V Ultra Gloss is compliant for all refinish markets in North America.

"We’ve given EC550 En-V Ultra Gloss all the attributes PPG customers have asked for," said Tim Jones, Automotive Refinish segment manager. "It's production-friendly, easy to apply and yields an unmatched luxurious gloss. It's exactly what a premium Envirobase High Performance clearcoat should be."
