Includes more than 50 radar capable color formulas for the ENVIROBASE High Performance and AQUABASE Plus waterborne paint systems
Strongsville, Ohio—Many of today’s vehicles include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This includes radar, ultrasound, cameras, and LiDAR. The various ADAS in the market provide adaptive/traffic-aware cruise control, parking assistance, lane departure warning/correction, traffic signal recognition, rear collision warning, cross-traffic warning, emergency braking, and collision avoidance.
ADAS equipment is usually located behind the painted surfaces of cars and light trucks so there may be an interaction between the equipment, the panels (metal or plastic) and the coatings.
To support the repair of vehicles with ADAS systems, PPG has announced the updated PaintManager XI software, released Oct. 20, which includes more than 50 radar capable color formulas for the ENVIROBASE High Performance and AQUABASE Plus waterborne paint systems.
PPG reminds shops to make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for repairing vehicles equipped with radar. It is also important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for testing the correct operation of radar and/or any other ADAS before returning the repaired vehicle to service.
