Several PPG Refinish paint lines are utilized in the auto refinish mobile repair business, which involves repair and repainting of smaller areas of an automobile in an automotive facility. When auto repair and painting are being done in a location other than in a building designed for these activities, it is essential that the activities be conducted in a manner that ensures protection of people—including workers, neighbors and bystanders; the environment and the property at the mobile repair location.
Before handling PPG products, users should read and understand the information on the label, the product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) and product usage instructions. The MSDS and label contain all the information necessary for the safe handling, storage and use of PPG products including the health and physical hazards specific to each product.
PPG’s Mobile Repair Guide offers health, safety and environmental guidelines to follow when paint products are being used in a mobile touch-up or mobile repair business. The guide covers such topics as:
- Repackaging guidelines
- Product for professional use only
- Material transportation safety
- Neighbors and bystanders, environment and property protection
