PPG launches UV-cured primer surfacer

PPG has launched it’s D8082 UV Cured Primer Surfacer technology; designed to help bodyshops reduce energy costs and increase throughput.

The latest development from PPG uses advanced UV Primer technology enabling a rapid cure of the primer using UV light to deliver significant process efficiency benefits and reduce costs for bodyshops versus a conventional primer.

The new UV-Cured D8082 technology from PPG requires no flash off between coats and can be cured in as little as 4 minutes under a UV lamp; offering significant time and costs savings for bodyshops.

Using this new UV-Cured Primer Surfacer from PPG can dramatically reduce the cycle time of a vehicle repair with a 1 visit application, resulting in greater productivity and profitability. Further to this, the unique clear characteristic of the UV-Cured Primer Surfacer offers complete visibility of the repair below the primer meaning the repair area is kept to a minimum; saving material usage and time. D8082 is also very easy to sand minimising additional work and providing further time savings to the bodyshop.

UV-Cured D8082 offers a route to achieving an extremely fast and easy throughput of high quality small repairs, whilst also achieving substantial energy and material savings, ensuring greater bodyshop profitability.
