Axalta, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, is committed to driving continual technological innovation. Its latest developments use patented Axalta Fast Cure Low Energy technology that, when used as part of a complete system, cut process times in professional bodyshops by up to 50% and reduce energy consumption by up to 70% while still achieving the best quality repair.
Adrien Schrobiltgen, Vice President for Axalta’s refinish business in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, says, “There is nothing on the market that can match our Fast Cure Low Energy technology for speed and performance. It delivers the fastest overall solution, making the entire paint repair journey easier and more profitable for the bodyshop, while never comprising on the high-quality finish our end users have come to expect from Axalta.”
Based on Axalta’s revolutionary in-house chemistry that uses both temperature and ambient humidity to accelerate the drying process, bodyshops that use the full product system find the perfect balance between high speed and low baking energy consumption, while delivering the highest quality finish, faster than ever. Bodyshops can also use this speed of performance to offer rapid repair services that can increase their profitability.
This Fast Cure Low Energy technology is part of Axalta’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions to suit its customers’ needs. Not only does lower temperature drying offer bodyshops the ability to repair temperature-sensitive electric vehicles or to repair vehicles with heat-sensitive components more easily, but it is also enables those bodyshops who install low energy spray booths to carry out the highest quality repairs.
This patented technology is offered by Axalta’s three premium global refinish brands, Cromax, Spies Hecker and Standox.
