Better for the Environment Gone Green!
Riverside Auto Body has taken a proactive stand in protecting the environment by being the first auto body repair center in the Yankton area to go “green” with its paint finishing system. We recently switched to a low-VOC PPG waterborne basecoat from a conventional solvent-based system.
We knew this was the right thing to do. Our shop is already environmentally-friendly – we recycle and dispose of materials properly – it was natural for us to take this next step. By using PPG’s Envirobase® High Performance for refinishing vehicles, we significantly reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into the air, help improve the quality of our air and add 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 basecoat, the PPG Envirobase® High Performance system can reduce basecoat-sourced VOC emissions by up to 80%.
