Phased rollout collision repair facilities starting in January.
PPG (NYSE:PPG) announced the launch of the PPG Deltron NXT refinish system, representing a major upgrade to the current PPG Deltron DBC solventborne product line.
Major features incorporated in the PPG Deltron NXT system include more than 30 new toners that comprise the latest liquid pearls and effects pigments as well as new black toners.
“We chose these advanced toners to keep pace with and provide excellent color matching for today’s most complex OEM vehicle colors,” said Pete Ragone, PPG solventborne brand marketing manager, automotive refinish. “In addition, we’ve tapped our global technology resources to add new premium clearcoat options that are especially designed to meet performance requirements of the high-production collision center.”
The PPG Deltron NXT system also includes a new range of reducers to broaden the application window for users, as well as new tools to assist painters in the proper use of the system.
“The enhancements we’ve incorporated into the PPG Deltron NXT system reflect our ongoing commitment to provide superior performance and color-matching excellence for those collision centers that prefer a premium-quality, solvent-based refinish system,” said Tom Maziarz, PPG vice president, automotive refinish, Americas. “Given this significant evolution of our iconic brand, customers will soon notice new PPG Deltron NXT branding and label designs to better reflect a modern, premium and high-tech system.”
The launch of the PPG Deltron NXT system will begin in January 2022 as a phased rollout to collision repair shops in the U.S. The rollout will continue to expand in this market during the second quarter of 2022.
