DTNA approves PPG paint system

Delfleet One undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats now approved for aftermarket repairs on Freightliner, Western Star trucks

Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) recently approved the PPG Delfleet One paint system for warranty and aftermarket repairs on its Freightliner and Western Star trucks.

As an integrated system of undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats, the Delfleet One paint system was developed to meet the color-matching and productivity needs of aftermarket users. It is a progressive paint system for the commercial transportation industry, PPG said.  

Covering the full commercial vehicle color palette, the system offers volatile organic compound (VOC) ratings of 1.5 pounds per gallon for basecoat, direct gloss and matte finishes. Undercoats and clearcoats have VOC ratings as low as 1.4 pounds per gallon. As a result, the system can reduce VOC emissions by 57% compared to typical 3.5 VOC commercial paint systems, helping customers to meet regulatory requirements, the company maintained.

“We’re confident the PPG Delfleet One paint system will ensure users achieve high-quality repairs on Freightliner and Western Star vehicles while also fostering a sustainable workplace due to the ultra-low VOC emissions,” said Scott Colvin, PPG brand manager, fleet segments, commercial coatings, U.S. and Canada. 

“We are pleased that Daimler Truck North America recognizes the system as a preferred paint line.”
