PPG says Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has approved the PPG Defleet One paint system for warranty and aftermarket repairs on its Freightliiner & Western Star trucks.

As an integrated system of undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats, the PPG Delfleet One paint system was developed to meet colour-matching and productivity needs of aftermarket users.

Covering the full commercial transportation colour palette, the system offers volatile organic compound (VOC) ratings of 1.5 pounds per gallon for basecoat, direct gloss and matte finishes.

Undercoats and clearcoats have VOC ratings as low as 1.4 pounds per gallon. As a result, the system can reduce VOC emissions by 57% compared to typical 3.5 VOC commercial paint systems, helping customers to meet regulatory requirements.

"We're confident the PPG Delfleet One paint system will ensure users achieve high-quality repairs on Freightliner and Western Star vehicles, while also fostering a sustainable workplace due to the ultra-low VOC emissions," said PPG brand manager, fleet segments, commercial coatings, US and Canada, Scott Colvin.

"We are pleased Daimler Truck North America recognises the system as a preferred paint line."
