PPG Delfeet One for commercial vehicles

PPG says it is committed to delivering the highest quality products and services, which has earned the company a place as a global leader in the supply of coatings to the refinish industry.

Delfleet One is a premium paint system designed specifically for commercial vehicles. Using advanced technologies, pigments and resins, PPG claims this comprehensive system meets the most demanding requirements of the transport industry whilst causing minimal environmental impact.

Whatever the requirement, Delfleet One provides an efficient solution for all HGVs and PSVs and processes. PPG says its Delfleet One paint system is a complete and compact line of advanced coatings, specially formulated to address the demanding refinish needs of the commercial transportation industry.

PPG states it engineered these next-generation coatings to deliver outstanding colour matching, ease of use, increased productivity and the commercial transportation industry’s lowest volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions for a premium paint system with full colour capability.

The PPG Delfleet One paint system is a major technological advance and the direct result of PPG asking the people who matter – fleet operators, truck body builders, repair facility painters and others who work with these types of products every day – what they wanted in a premium paint system.

The PPG Delfleet One paint system includes the latest aluminium and pearl pigments to provide full colour capability for direct gloss, basecoat and matte colour.

The compact paint system has 42 toners, four binders and four paint additives, efficiently reducing on-hand inventory requirements yet providing the resources needed to address all refinish or OEM work.

The entire system is supported by PPG’s extensive colour database that expands as new colours, special mixes and variant formulas emerge.

It uses the exclusive PPG Delfleet One Tint Guide and PPG Delfleet One Colour Deck, which houses thousands of OEM colour chips and variants arranged chromatically. The system also ensures accurate colour match through PPG’s cutting-edge colour tools.

PPG says it designed the PPG Delfleet One paint system for ease of use. Painters can feel confident using traditional application techniques, and the system’s excellent toner stability and consistency minimise colour variation among painters, according to PPG.

The system has very consistent ready- to-spray viscosities across colour families, eliminating the need for painters to adjust each colour before application or change spray-gun settings. It also features excel- lent metallic control, good rivet hang and outstanding matte control with anti-burnishing, and it is easy to mix with shared hardeners and reducers. Painters can adjust dry times simply through hardener selection.
