The date on the PDF is 5/2005 and since have not seen it before take it as a new BASE COAT? I think this is a new product. Know in the past when older OMNI products were updated for The Product Tech Sheets the dates were changed but have not seen this OMNI MBP before.
Within the link and description seems as if the MBP is targeted directly at the HIDING & COLOR MATCHING abilities that some people often complained about for OMNI MBC.
More info directly from PPG for questions asked via EMAIL:

1Q.Any info for how it compares to MBC for coverage?
1A. "MBP offers significantly better coverage than MBC. 2 to 3 coats give full coverage on most colors."
2Q. How does the OMNI MBP compare for price with OMNI MBC?
2A. "MBP is more expensive than MBC. It is priced directly between MBC and DBC."
3Q. Any idea why PPG is calling this OMNI MBP a URETHANE in the product sheets although it is still just a base coat system?
3A. "All PPG basecoats (except Envirobase) are made with an acrylic urethane resin base."

I did not know that PPG base coats were considered URETHANEs. Interesting. I learned something.
Has anyone tried or priced the PPG OMNI MBP Base Coat yet?
