Navistar has chosen PPG as the paint supplier for the “CatalIST,” its entry in the Department of Energy (DOE) SuperTruck program.
The truck’s topcoat scheme features Delfleet Evolution paint system orange tricoat in FBC with F3921 clearcoat. The gray on the trailer—FBC with a flattened F3921 clear—was painted to match the flattened gray film on the skirts.
“This was a fantastic accomplishment with a quick, demanding turnaround,” said J.J. Wirth, commercial coatings brand manager for PPG. “There was a lot riding on CatalIST, and its finish had to be as exceptional and innovative as the technology driving it.”
