STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – October 3, 2014 – The PPG Automotive Refinish SHOP-LINE® brand has added JC7100 European Multi-Panel Clearcoat to its product line. The new 2.1 VOC clearcoat—designed for large repairs—has been developed specifically to provide cost-conscious collision centers with the ability to efficiently deliver an impressive gloss finish.

“This is another example of Shop-Line products that deliver exactly what repair centers want—in this case, an economically priced, quality 2.1 VOC clearcoat perfect for multi-panel work,” said Jennifer Boros, PPG segment manager, solvent-borne brands. “We’ve made JC7100 easy to use and suitable for large jobs or where a deep gloss finish is desired.  It’s an ideal example of the Shop-Line brand’s commitment to provide products that balance performance and price.”

Boros also points out that JC7100 features a 2:1 mix ratio and is compatible with two Shop-Line hardeners to make it easily adjustable to working conditions and job size. Further, its 2.1 VOC addresses the requirements of regulated U.S. regions as well as Canada.

The Shop-Line brand offers everything that’s required to perform efficient, quality and economical refinish repairs.
