PPG Refinish Notification
Supply Chain Notification – Reducer Containers

January 12, 2021

As communicated recently, PPG and many other manufacturers continue to face a temporary shortage of containers in certain types and/or sizes due to a global supply chain issue.

The PPG planning, manufacturing and distribution team has been quickly resolving shortages as they arise. At this time, obtaining reducer cans with the current 1-1/4” screw cap closure is a challenge. Therefore, we must temporarily transition some products to cans with a slightly larger 32mm REL closure.

Effective over the next several weeks, the following products will transition to this new cap.  The change will last from three to six months, based on can availability. Please note the product and item numbers will remain the same during this time.

Brand Item No. Description Temporary Pour Spout Size
Aquabase® Plus P850-9611 Mid Temperature Thinner 32mm REL
Aquabase® Plus P850-9612 High Temperature Thinner 32mm REL
Envirobase® ECR75 Mid Temperature Thinner 32mm REL
Envirobase® ECR85 High Temperature Thinner 32mm REL

We apologize for any inconvenience the change may cause and appreciate your support during this challenging situation.  If the need arises to transition other product containers, a communication will be sent to you.

If you have any questions, please contact customer service at 1-800-647-6050.
