Waterborne Paint Systems are Enironmentally Friendly and are a Better Painting Process.
Quality Auto Body is protecting the environment by going “green” with its paint finishing system. Quality uses a low-VOC PPG waterborne basecoat from a conventional solvent-based system.
Using waterborne basecoat for refinishing vehicles greatly reduces the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. Quality Auto Body is doing their part to improve air quality. This also contributes to a healthier work environment and reduces any emission odors from paint booths.
VOCs are chemical compounds commonly used in paint coating industries. When these molecules are released in the air they help create an ozone layer. When compared to a conventional solventborne basecoat, (PPG Envirobase® High Performance or Nexa Autocolor™ Aquabase® Plus) can reduce basecoat sourced VOC emissions by up to 80%.
Waterborne basecoat is the latest coatings technology that’s typically used by manufacturers to create the original color on today’s vehicles. Waterborne paints are easier to color match and have been in the paint industry since the early 90's.
