Ford gives technical approval to Sherwin-Williams' AWX.

Ford Motor Company recently approved the AWX waterborne refinish system from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. for collision repair centers on a global basis. The AWX system has undergone the extensive technical certification process to meet the Ford WSS-M2P100-D standard. The Ford Group sets this technical standard to assure that its vehicles are repaired using automotive refinish products of the highest quality.

For compliance without complications, Sherwin-Williams recently introduced AWX, a waterborne basecoat/clearcoat system that utilizes a proprietary resin system that behaves like the solventborne systems of today, according to the company.

"We're delighted that the Ford Motor Company has recognized AWX as a premium waterborne solution," said Jason Crager, OEM account executive, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. "Our goal in launching this product was to ease the fears and concerns body shop owners have in changing from a solvent to a waterborne system. Because AWX has solventborne-like application properties, it ensures a seamless transition and conversion. Technicians will be familiar and comfortable with the process already, requiring minimal training and start-up costs."
