      Catalytic Converter Theft Statistics
      According to data compiled by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), reported catalytic converter thefts jumped from 1,298 in 2018 to 14,433 in 2020. And this trend is still gaining speed. In the first half of 2022, the automotive insurance provider State Farm received more than 23,000 catalytic converter theft claims.
      This national crime spree has drawn the attention of local law enforcement, as well as federal investigations. In November 2022,

Arrests, searches and seizures took place in California, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia. California accounts for nearly 25% of insurance claims for theft of catalytic converters followed by Texas with nearly 14% of claims. Approximately 1,600 catalytic converters are reportedly stolen in California each month. However, vehicle owners across the country must prepare ahead of time to prevent catalytic converters from getting stolen.

In the stash were several reciprocating saws, which are used by thieves to detach a catalytic converter in less than a minute. Preventing Catalytic Converter Theft
      To prevent catalytic converter theft, crime experts recommend parking your vehicle inside a secure garage or in a well-lit area. But that isn’t always possible, especially for work vehicles. Sure, an alarm system might help deter someone from quietly breaking into your vehicle for valuables, but a criminal ring willing to operate an electric reciprocating saw at night in a suburban neighborhood is most likely not scared away by an annoying alarm.
      Because fleet vehicles like cargo vans and heavy-duty pickup trucks sit higher, they are often the target of catalytic converter theft. However, reports show that standard commuter hybrids, such as the Toyota Prius, Lexus RX and Honda Jazz, have the highest number of cases of catalytic converters getting stolen. Fortunately, The NAPA Network is here to help with catalytic converter theft prevention.

On a standard combustion engine, this required part converts toxic fumes into safe gases through a chemical reaction. On the inside, catalytic converters are lined with tiny pores that are coated with platinum, rhodium or palladium. These precious metals are what makes a premium catalytic converter worth more than $1,000 on the black market at junk yards. For the best catalytic converter theft protection, the NAPA experts recommend installing the

Choose either the Standard Model with a 1-Year Warranty or the Stainless Steel MAXX Model with a Lifetime Warranty. Both versions are manufactured in the United States. This easy-to-install catalytic converter theft deterrent product fits almost any gas-powered vehicle, including RVs. The durable metal rope can loop around your converter in as many as eight different points. Keep in mind, your CatClamp cables must route through a permanent (non-moving) component of your vehicle. While this catalytic converter anti-theft device can cost a couple hundred dollars, installing a replacement catalytic converter can cost thousands of dollars between the purchase of the part and the professional labor required.
      Signs of a Stolen Catalytic Converter
      Signs that your catalytic converter was stolen include a loud noise coming from your open exhaust, sluggish acceleration, dark smoke expelling from your tailpipe or the smell of rotten eggs coming from underneath your vehicle. If you notice any of these signs, investigate further. Driving a vehicle without a catalytic converter is illegal, unless the age of your vehicle makes it exempt. Without a catalytic converter, your vehicle will not pass the required annual emission test. 
      Operating a vehicle with no catalytic converter also means hot, dangerous gas is released under your car, which heats up sensitive components and exposes passengers to carbon monoxide. That’s why many car owners place an anti-theft device for catalytic converters on each of their gas-powered vehicles.
      Keep in mind, all-electric vehicles, which consume no gasoline or diesel and plug into electric sockets to replenish their batteries, are the only vehicles on the road today that do not have and do not need a catalytic converter. But for all other vehicles, including standard hybrids and plug-in hybrids, NAPA is your one-stop-shop for all the

      link hidden, please login to view Why is catalytic converter matter?
      The catalytic converter belongs to the exhaust system of the vehicle. During use, they may be contaminated, blocked, or physically damaged, which will lead to poor engine performance, and in severe cases, the engine will stop.
      What can cause damage to the catalytic converter?
      Some pollutants can damage the catalytic converter, such as lead-containing gas, engine coolant and engine oil, among which the engine coolant can leak into the combustion system due to the failure of the cylinder head gasket. These liquids can clog the catalytic converter, thereby restricting the passage of exhaust gas.
      If the spark plug does not ignite or the exhaust valve is leaking, there is too much unburned gas, and the catalytic converter may overheat.

      What happens when the catalytic converter goes bad?
      Engine performance is slow The exhausted gas is black smoke with the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs The underside of the car is overheated
      How to mainitain catalytic converter?
      Maintain your vehicleregularly. Keep your exhaust, emission and combustion systems in good condition, which can effectively reduce the probability of catalytic converter damage Check the engine lights regularly.

      PPG’s 2021 Automotive Color Popularity Report highlights increased demand for two-tone finishes, personalized colors and other emerging trends among car buyers.
      The rise of two-tone finishes reflects consumers’ desire for personalization, PPG explains. Considerable progress in color science and application technologies provide an opportunity to bring these styling choices to the masses in a more practical and sustainable manner.
      “It’s fitting that two-tone finishes would come back into favor during this time when we as a society are looking to the past,” said Misty Yeomans, PPG color styling manager, automotive OEM, Americas. “Along with special-order colors, tinted clearcoats, tri-coats and matte finishes, two-tone finishes better reflect vehicle owners’ individual preferences and personalities.”
      Although two-tone finishes were common in the 1950s and 1960s, conventional color development and application processes made them increasingly impractical in mass-production environments. The traditional process for achieving a two-tone finish requires labor-intensive masking of the vehicle body and multiple runs through the paint shop. PPG has helped global OEMs overcome this challenge through a breakthrough application technology that produces crisp paint edges without the use of masking and other time-intensive steps.
      PPG’s precision application process can reduce paint-shop application time by approximately 50 minutes per two-tone vehicle, according to the company. It supports sustainability goals by reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and eliminating the need for energy-intensive air-filtering systems to handle overspray. Color personalization also is enabled through PPG advancements in digital color styling, which dramatically reduces the time to market for new colors, according to PPG.
      Other trends highlighted in the PPG report are rising popularity of grays, blues, greens and violets, with vibrant new colors more likely to debut on sporty models rather than SUVs and pickups.
      Green, with its connection to nature, sustainability and inclusiveness, remains strong worldwide. This will continue to be an important color space for the automotive industry.
      “Green is also seen as a ’traffic light’ color, acting as a signal for everyone to go forward – it’s safe and we can trust this color,” Yeomans said. “Green has two directions. One is sporty, fresh and vivid. The other is organic and darker, with deeper tones developed or designed as dark luxury greens yet still with a sporty and fresh attitude.”
      From a global perspective, white (35% of vehicle builds) and black (18%) continue to be the predominant choices of car buyers, while demand for grays has increased 2% in each of the past two years. Blues remain strong at 8%, while reds dropped to 7% of builds. This was led by a 1.5% drop among North American consumers.
      PPG also sees increased emphasis on taking a holistic approach to vehicle styling.
      “We consider all surfaces and features of the vehicle as part of our color styling process,” said Yeomans. “As one example, we’re seeing increased use of specialized wheel coatings and colors to complement the styling cues of the vehicle body.”
      PPG’s unique position as a global color leader enables the company to observe and translate emerging color trends for customers’ applications – from consumer goods to automotive color and residential to commercial and industrial design.Using this fact-based approach, PPG color experts help customers generate color ideas based on cultural and demographic trends. The resulting color technologies coat a wide range of materials and surfaces, shorten development cycles and bring more desirable and better-looking products to market faster.
