11 July 2024

PPG will undertake a U.S. tour of its revolutionary PPG MoonWalk® automated paint mixing system in two colourful trucks outfitted with the company’s suite of digital technologies for the refinish industry. The tour will make stops from coast to coast and will showcase the system’s significant benefits for body shops, including improved quality and efficiency, time and labour cost savings and reduced material waste.

“The PPG MoonWalk automated system ensures exceptional accuracy in every mix, so painters can spend more time painting and body shop owners can tackle labour challenges,” said Tom Maziarz, PPG Vice President, Americas, Automotive Refinish. “We’re excited to showcase this technology across the U.S., demonstrating how it can enhance the operational efficiency of body shops.”

More than 2,000 body shops worldwide have installed PPG MoonWalk systems. The compact system’s precision paint mixing delivers high-quality, consistent paint mixes, reduces waste, enhances technician experience and keeps paint rooms clean and splash-free.
