STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – Feb. 6, 2015 - PPG Commercial Coatings has introduced DELFLEET® Evolution F3259 HS Basecoat Hardener, an ideal match for use with the brand’s FBCH premium basecoat.

F3259 Basecoat Hardener has been specially designed to enhance the overall application and appearance of the Delfleet Evolution FBCH basecoat. FBCH is a fast-drying basecoat that, when clearcoated, provides the ultimate durability and look favored by fleet refinishers. By mixing F3259 in a 3:1:1 ratio with the basecoat and appropriate F344X dry additive, overall application performance and finish appearance are improved, particularly when applying transparent colors.

“We’re very proud to introduce F3259 Basecoat Hardener as a key component of the Delfleet Evolution line,” said J.J. Wirth, PPG brand manager, fleet segments. “We’re constantly working to offer products that respond to our customers’ requirements, and F3259 comes directly out of that effort. With F3259, refinish techs can expect a speedier, easier application process that we believe will produce highly favorable results. Customers who use F3259 will quickly appreciate its qualities.”

According to Wirth, F3259 improves flow and leveling as well as overspray absorption. The new hardener also delivers faster out-of-dust times, tape times and cure. In addition, its quick drying capabilities improve overall cycle times and productivity.
