Water Based Paints

Van Collision has taken a proactive stand in protecting the environment by going 'green' with our paint finishing system. The collision center recently switched to a low-VOC PPG waterborne basecoat from a conventional solvent-based system.

Our use of waterborne basecoat for refinishing our customers' vehicles significantly reduces the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. This move further helps us do our part to improve the quality of our air and contribute to an overall healthier work environment.VOCs are chemical compounds commonly used in paint coatings and cleaning products. When released into the atmosphere they help create ozone and smog. 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 is typically used by manufacturers to create the original color on today's vehicles. According to PPG, the introduction of its waterborne color toners for use in collision centers provides the enhanced ability to match a vehicle's original finish. Not only is the paint better ecologically, it gives better color matches and it's faster to complete a repair when compared to the old system we were using.
