PAINT PERFORMANCE, HIGH VISIBILITY PLASTIC PARTS - EXTERIOR ***TO BE USED WITH FORD WSS-M99P1111-A***
|Publication Date:||27 August 2008|
This specification defines the performance requirements of a painted finish on high visibility plastic parts. Thermoset plastic parts are painted with a primer, sealer or guidecoat, and topcoat. Thermoplastic parts are painted with primer and enamel. The specific paint film thickness requirements for both types of substrates are shown in para 3.2.4. This specification includes two systems of primer/sealer and enamel film thickness to provide a differential in initial appearance.
System I is a durable automotive paint finish with excellent initial appearance and adequate durability for the projected life of the vehicle. This system is feasible for all assembly plants.
System II defines a durable paint finish with superior visual appearance on the finished vehicles, as a result of increased film thickness to achieve greater fullness, color depth and smoothness. This system requires paint processing facilities in addition to those required in System I.
ESB-M2P7-B1 specification shown without system designation shall be understood to be System I.
