PPG launches new user-friendly one visit premium clear coat

PPG once again raises the standard for modern clear coat performance. The name of the product raising the bar in the clear coat category is D8177 Rapid Performance Clearcoat, which uses advanced technology to achieve a superb, glossy, mirror-like finish with just one application.

Alongside rapid bake of down to five minutes and good air-drying capabilities, this new clear coat provides significant flexibility, empowering all body shops to save time, material and energy - without compromising on performance and ease of use.

Like its predecessor, D8177 requires only five minutes baking at 60˚C and has very quick drying properties, resulting in a higher volume of repairs and significant energy savings. The clear coat uses two dedicated hardeners and two thinners to ensure the optimum application in all temperatures.

Applied in only one visit

What truly makes this next generation clear coat stand out in the market is that it is fast and easy to apply. Thereby, it supports PPG’s dedication to ensure our customers’ need for optimizing their workflow, relieve bottlenecks and speed up processes - without reducing quality.

The speed and high-quality finish of the clear coat does not mean it is difficult to apply. With its excellent flow and superb resistance to sag, the revolutionary clear coat enables painters to apply with confidence.

The new clear coat can be used in a number of different ways. In addition to drying in 5 minutes at 60 degrees, it can dry in 20 minutes at 40 degrees. If Air drying is preferred, it is dust dry in 20 minutes, handable in 60 minutes and polishable in 90 minutes. D8177 is designed for use over ENVIROBASE® High Performance and DELTRON®.GRS basecoats.
