Shop-Line JC830 features a simple 4:1 mix ratio for easy spraying and speedy cycle times that include a fast, low-bake option and the capability to air-dry and buff quickly.

“The Shop-Line brand lineup offers everything a shop requires to perform high-quality yet economical refinish work, and JC830 fits into that lineup,” said Jennifer Boros, PPG segment manager, solvent-borne brands. “This is a very efficient performance-focused clearcoat. For shops that want to increase productivity while keeping costs under control, JC830 production clear is the smart answer. We expect shop owners and their customers to be very satisfied with what this clear can do.”

Boros added that the new clearcoat is easy to use and extremely versatile—compatible with any of three available PPG hardeners, allowing it to adapt to a variety of working conditions and jobs. As a compliant 2.1 VOC clearcoat, JC830 is suitable for use by customers throughout the regulated regions of North America.
