TOYOTA APPROVES PPG AND NEXA AUTOCOLOR CLEARCOATS FOR LEXUS REPAIRS WORLDWIDE



by Tim Fahm

Toyota has endorsed the worldwide use of clearcoats from PPG Deltron™ GRS and Nexa Autocolor™ product lines for refinish repair on Lexus LS vehicles. The approved clearcoats are D8122 Ceramiclear™ 8122 and Nexa Autocolor P190-6512 SR CERAMIC CLEARCOAT.

Lexus recently adopted a newly developed OEM clear coating for its LS models. The clearcoat features two-component, cross-linking urethane with a softer, finer, and more flexible structure to provide better protection against chipping and to make repairs easier. Use of the noted PPG and Nexa Autocolor refinish products throughout the Toyota distribution network will maintain the characteristics of the new Lexus production clearcoat.

“Toyota’s global approval of our new clearcoats is a major achievement,” said Christoph Rieser, PPG Manager OEM Europe. “Lexus vehicles have a well-deserved reputation for world-class quality. Meeting their rigorous standards for refinish products and being able to support and maintain that quality level is something we are very proud of.”

D8122 Ceramiclear™ clearcoats are new-generation finishes that utilize innovative nanoparticle technology to provide exceptional mar- and scratch-resistance. Nexa Autocolor P190-6512 SR CERAMIC CLEARCOAT is high solids, also extremely mar- and scratch-resistant. These two products create a glass-like, remarkably hard surface for superior gloss retention and subsequent customer satisfaction.
