PPG began the program in 2007 to provide training and support to shop owners, managers and technicians being required to convert to using waterborne paint products per mandates in California and Canada and those anticipated in additional states.

Collision center managers have reported very positive reactions to PPG’s program. “It was an easy transition for us,” said Bruce Dennis, body shop director for ABC Nissan in Phoenix. “With the training we received, it was great. Anytime you go and change a paint line, everyone gets real hesitant and a little excited, but it was real easy, really seamless.”

“We have found that shops that follow the PPG Convert with Confidence approach have been extremely successful in the conversion from solvent to PPG waterborne,” said Bill Troyer, PPG Automotive Refinish manager of training. “The key to success is having a solid conversion process, and PPG has created the plan that works.”

“Conversion was so simple, it was unbelievable,” said John Reilly, general manager, Gary Yeoman’s Ford Automall Body Shop, Daytona Beach, Fla. “They put the system in, and we started spraying the next day. No hiccups or anything.”

Low-volatile organic compound (VOC) basecoats also will be mandated in 12 northeastern states and the District of Columbia as early as 2012. With this focus on “green” processes and products, Troyer said it appears it is only a matter of time until waterborne systems will be recommended throughout the country. He said PPG urges shop owners to use the Convert with Confidence program to help make the transition as easy as possible.
