PPG has announced the addition of a handheld ultraviolet (UV) LED cure light to its PPG OneChoice UV primer system to offer a quicker solution.

According to the company, the new addition will allow technicians to complete spot refinish repairs in two to three minutes. This would not only improve cycle-time performance but would also increase productivity in collision repair centres.

PPG’s advanced aerosol technology— SUA1080 UV primer and SXA1081 UV primer cleaner—is used in the expanded system, in addition to the new light and UV protective glasses and gloves.

“This expanded PPG OneChoice UV primer system is ideal for quick spot repairs,” says Jennifer Boros, PPG Director of Marketing, Collision Segment, North America. “It has been engineered to help shops save time and increase throughput and productivity thanks to the ease and efficiency of UV processing. We have combined high-build performance with an industry-leading cure speed. PPG customers immediately will see the constructive difference the system makes in shop operations.”

The entire system has been designed to be efficient. The “shake and spray” SUA1080 UV primer does not require mixing and is quickly ready for sanding when used with the new handheld UV LED cure light. As opposed to a fixed-position lamp, the new light aids in making the curing process convenient and effective. With the SXA1081 primer cleaner, paint technicians will be able to clean the cured primer quickly before sanding. As stated by PPG in a release, there is no waste, no pot life issues and no spray gun cleaning at the end of the painting process.

“The new PPG OneChoice system is easy to use,” says Dan Sayres, owner, Custom Images Auto Body in Waverly, West Virginia. “There is little to clean up and no messy, clogged up spray guns. The built-in efficiency of the primer system lets us be more productive. The handheld light works like a charm, and my painters are very happy with it.”

The PPG OneChoice system can be used by repair technicians over properly cleaned steel, aluminum, fibreglass, galvanized steel, polyester body filler, and rigid and semi-rigid plastic except for polyethylene (PE) and polystyrene (PS). The system is compatible with all original equipment, as well as, PPG refinish paint systems. According to the company, it is suitable for use throughout Canada and the U.S.
