Auto World Specialists has taken a proactive stand in protecting the environment by going “green” with its paint finishing system. The collision center recently switched to a low-VOC PPG waterborne base coat from a conventional solvent-based system.
“Our use of waterborne base coat for refinishing our customers’ vehicles significantly reduces the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere,” said Eric Nash, (AWS Owner). “This move further helps us do our part to improve the quality of our air and contribute to an overall healthier work environment.”
VOCs are chemical compounds commonly used in paint coatings and cleaning products. When released into the atmosphere they help create ozone and smog. When compared to a conventional solvent borne base coat (PPG Envirobase High Performance or Nexa Autocolor Aquabase Plus) can reduce base coat sourced VOC emissions by up to 80%.
Waterborne base coat is the latest coatings technology that’s typically used by manufacturers to create the original color on today’s vehicles. According to PPG, the introduction of its waterborne color toners for use in collision centers provides the enhanced ability to match a vehicle’s original finish.
“This is a major technological advancement with no downside,” says Eric Nash. “Not only is the paint better ecologically, it gives better color matches and it’s faster to complete a repair when compared to the system we were using.”

Through our limited lifetime warranty, all of our auto body repairs are guaranteed for as long as you own the vehicle.
