PPG Refinish Notification
Aquabase Plus P997-SF18 Silver Flair

June 1, 2012


Product Information

P997-SF18 Silver Flair is made from a special effect pigment that gives paint the ability to change color. When viewed from different angles or under different light sources (low light -vs- direct sun light).

Pigments of this type have started to be used by motor manufacturers (OEMs). The special effect which OEMs have been able to achieve using this kind of pigmentation is difficult to match accurately in refinish product lines which do not contain the pigment. P997-SF18 has been developed using the same pigment currently being used in OEM colors.
