Easy-to-spray system can be fully cured, ready to sand in just 2 minutes


MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - Oct. 5, 2021
 -- PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced the launch of PPG OneChoice® SU1280 UV-Cured Primer Surfacer for the U.S. and Canadian automotive refinish markets. Available in a spray-gun-applied quart, the primer surfacer with advanced UV-cure coating technology can be sanded in just two minutes after application.

“This new primer surfacer combines high-build performance of 2.0 to 2.5 mils per coat with exceptional UV-cured dry times, making it ideal for quickly performing small-to-medium spot repairs,” said Pete Ragone, PPG solventborne brand marketing manager, automotive refinish. “For collision shops looking to save time and energy with a rapid repair process, this UV-cured technology is the perfect solution.”

Compatible with all PPG topcoats, PPG OneChoice® SU1280 UV-Cured Primer Surfacer cures with a handheld UV LED lamp emitting a UVA wavelength of 395. The primer surfacer also can be cured by direct sunlight in 10 to 30 minutes, depending on UV intensity.

PPG will introduce an aerosol-applied version of the same UV primer surfacer technology in November 2021 for those seeking the convenience of an aerosol can.
