PLIOGRIP® by Valvoline Finishing Cream Skim Coat Eases Class A Finish on Plastics

DUBLIN, Ohio - PLIOGRIP® by Valvoline Finishing Cream skim coat is being featured at the New Product Pavilion during the annual International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) being held in Las Vegas, Nev., Nov. 1 - 4. This product, from Ashland Inc. (NYSE:ASH), is a two-part epoxy skim coat for repair of minor scratches or gouges in various plastic substrates including thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) bumper covers and plastic and composite body panels.

"Feedback from auto body professionals who have tried Finishing Cream skim coat has been outstanding. There's no rollback on the feather edge and it can be used on one-sided bumper repairs without adhesion promoter or any other special surface pre-treatment," said John Baetz, marketing manager for PLIOGRIP by Valvoline.

PLIOGRIP by Valvoline Finishing Cream skim coat is a best-in-class skim coat that offers a three-minute work time. The compound is pallet mixed, so there is no waste of material or need for mixing tips. Finishing Cream remains flexible and leaves no pinholes after sanding, so repairs can match smooth OEM condition without rework or returns.
