All Kenworth models now come standard with a clear coat finish for longer-lasting paint.
KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth says it’s making its clear coat finish standard on all models.
The company says the DuPont Imron Elite clear coat it uses is extremely durable and ideal for conditions such as harsh weather or power washing. The clear coat is applied over top the base coat paint.
“The clear-coat finish gives each Kenworth truck even more depth of gloss as well as protection from ultraviolet rays. Clear coating will help maintain the beauty and high-quality factory finish of a Kenworth over the long haul,” said Marilyn Santangelo, Kenworth assistant general manager for operations.
“As with the base paint, the clear coat is applied by robotics to ensure uniform painting and minimal waste,” added Santangelo. “Applying paint is now an art of precision with the right amount of paint applied each and every time. This not only gives our customers a beautiful paint job, it’s also good for the environment as we minimize paint waste.”
