PPG Introduces Waterborne Low-Gloss Clearcoat System

Highly versatile clearcoats expand capabilities of PPG ENVIROBASE High Performance paint system.

 PPG announced on May 20, 2021 the launch of its 2.1 Low VOC Matte and Semi-Gloss Clearcoats for use with the ENVIROBASE® High Performance basecoat system in the United States and Canada.


Comprised of two premium-quality 2K acrylic urethane clears, the system can reproduce a range of gloss levels—making it ideal for performing refinish repairs on low-gloss finishes offered on such vehicles as MERCEDES-BENZ®, BMW®, FIAT® and LAMBORGHINI®.

“Our new system specifically addresses the collision center’s need to perform accurate, small or large refinish repairs of low-gloss finishes with our waterborne basecoat system,” said Nicole Sinclair, PPG brand manager, collision, automotive refinish. “Users will appreciate the smooth, exceptionally durable finish this low-gloss clearcoat system offers.”

EC5515 Low VOC Matte Clear and EC5517 Low VOC Semi-Gloss Clear offer the versatility of being used alone or mixed together to more precisely reproduce the OE finish, especially when adjustments are needed to match a range of gloss levels. Mixing formulas are available before topcoating in 5 gloss levels: Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Satin and Semi-Gloss.

Easy to prep and apply, the system features a simple 3:1:1 mix ratio and requires no flexibilizer for plastic substrates.
