Although Polyurethane (PU) paints have a number of advantages over Alkyd and Nitrocellulose paints, its high cost was a deterrent. It was beyond the reach of a certain segment
of consumers who wanted the same look and feel as that of PU paints at affordable prices. To cater to this slot of customers, Bilux was introduced by PPG Asian Paints in December 2001 with a focus towards understanding customer needs and providing enhanced value for cost. This attempt would encourage all Alkyd and Nitrocellulose paint users to upgrade to a Polyurethane paint system.
Bilux PU is the paint of the new generation. This product is ideal for top coating jobs of vehicles that are old as well as the ones that need to be touched up in PU paint.
