PPG Launches OneChoice SU1280 UV-Cured Primer Surfacer In North America

PPG has launched OneChoice SU1280 UV-Cured Primer Surfacer to the US and Canadian automotive refinish markets. According to the company, the primer surfacer features an advanced UV-cure coating technology, allowing it to be sanded two minutes after application.

“This new primer surfacer combines high-build performance of 2.0 to 2.5 millilitres per coat with exceptional UV-cured dry times, making it ideal for quickly performing small-to-medium spot repairs,” said Pete Ragone, Solventborne Brand Marketing Manager, Automotive Refinish at PPG.

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

The product is available in a spray-gun-applied quart (946 millilitres), with PPG to introduce an aerosol-applied version of the UV primer surfacer technology later in November.
