PPG Refinish Notification
Global Refinish System D985 GRS BC Blue Aluminum

April 9, 2010


  • A number of OEMs have started to use advanced pigmentation to create cleaner, more intense colors. 
  • The special color effects OEMs have been able to achieve using this pigment is difficult to match accurately in refinish product lines which do not contain the pigment.
  • The OEMs are expected to continue to produce colors containing advanced pigments of this type in the future.
  • D985 Blue Aluminum has been designated a “Limited Use Toner”.
  • D985 Blue Aluminum is made from a special effect pigment based on smooth, polished aluminum flakes coated with colored pigments. These flakes deliver very good opacity, gloss and outstanding chroma.
  • D985 Blue Aluminum has been specially formulated as a GRS BC liquid toner. It has been designed so that it can be used in exactly the same way as a standard toner.
  • D985 Blue Aluminum needs to be stirred like any other Global toner and requires a position on the mixing machine.
