PPG Refinish Notification
Intermix Label and MSDS Program Update

November 25, 2014


PPG Refinish continues to develop the support tools necessary to assist EH & S compliance for the collision focused end user. As a PPG customer you continue to have a requirement to label unreduced intermix color which is stored more than 24 hours. This letter details changes which streamline the current intermix label & MSDS program as well as help meet government regulations on reporting.

The present program requires the intermix formula blending facility to access the correct formula utilizing a variety of color retrieval tools: COLORMOBILE® and Online Color applications , or PAINTMANAGER® program software and review the MSDS (indicator) field on the formula screen. In that field there is a three to four letter prefix for the paint system followed by a number 1 through 4. For example you might see “DBC1” or “FDGH3”. (Reference the screenshot below.) The number corresponds to the heavy metal content of the toners within that intermix formula. The number indicator alerts the operator mixing the formula as to which label to apply for that mix. This label will list the correct “warnings and contains” statements and also identifies a matching MSDS.

All paint systems do not have the same metals content. If a facility uses a specific paint system, they should stock labels required for that system. In this last phase of our transition we are adding setting number 5 labels and corresponding MSDS. Products with setting 5 labels would contain MSDS reportable levels of manganese, chromium metal and/or trivalent chromium (but not hexavalent chromium). No formulas are being eliminated from the database. A small fraction (usually 10-15%) of formulas previously designated as 1 will be redirected to a setting number 5. See the attached file listing all of the paint systems that will require a new setting 5 label (and MSDS). If you use any of the paint systems listed below, you should order stock of setting 5 labels (we suggest you maintain present stock levels for 1, 3 and 4 labels). Canadian required unique labels are also designated below.

Only systems with a new setting 5 listed in the table below are affected. You should have new 5 labels in stock at your facility by mid December as our formula information systems begin to transition. To reiterate, for paint systems that contain both a 1 and 5 setting, we might expect setting 5 formulas to represent 10-15% of setting 1 formulas, order appropriately to avoid under or overstocking. Personal use could vary and will depend on customer selections.

If within unforeseen circumstance, you are unable to obtain stock of setting 5 labels and your formula calls for that label, you can use a setting 1 label until the end of January, 2015. There will be an overlap in EHS text on labels for a transition period. However you must obtain setting 5 label stock by the end of January, 2015 at the latest. You can order new labels by contacting your supplying PPG warehouse. Due to the lower expected need for these labels, most will be available 25 to a pack.

If you receive this bulletin as a distributor of PPG Refinish products and supply customers with products that they may combine and fill in containers which would require intermix color formula labels, we ask that you pass this communication on to those customers so they may be prepared to transition with this program.
