STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - November 3, 2015 - PPG Automotive Refinish has enhanced its ONECHOICE® universal ancillary brand with the addition of SUA1080 UV Primer and SU1081 UV Primer Post Wipe. SUA1080 employs the latest aerosol primer technology to combine high build with an industry-leading cure speed, by UV lamp, of only two minutes. The primer is ideal for spot repairs and improved cycle time. Once SUA1080 UV Primer has cured, a wipe down with SU1081 UV Primer Post Wipe quickly prepares the surface for sanding.

SUA1080 is suitable for a range of substrates including properly prepared steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, polyester body fillers, fiber glass and rigid and semirigid plastic (except polyethylene and polystyrene). It is also suitable for use with all OEM and PPG refinish paint systems. The primer is easy to use and requires no mixing. Its speed and superior performance increase refinish efficiency, making it an appropriate choice for any collision center interested in improving throughput and overall productivity.
