These work together to make the entire paint repair journey faster, easier and more profitable.”

Fast Cure Low Energy technology makes impossible possible

Axalta’s patented Fast Cure Low Energy technology cuts process times in professional bodyshops by up to 50% and reduces energy consumption by up to 70% while still achieving the best quality repair. Bodyshops can also use this speed of performance to offer rapid repair services that can increase their profitability.

Redefining Colour Management

Axalta’s Digital Colour Management uses a cloud-based colour management system that enables bodyshops to handle the entire colour retrieval and colour mixing processes not only completely digitally, but also 100% wirelessly – something that is unique to Axalta, and a first for the industry.

A unique digital bodyshop network management and reporting system

Axalta is also showcasing, its innovative digital network management system that has been specifically developed to facilitate the cooperation between bodyshops and network owners like fleet, lease and insurance companies or car manufacturers.

Axalta’s motorsport heritage

Visitors to the stand can get up close and personal with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport’s F1 W10 EQ Power+ – the race car in which the team’s drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are competing in the 2019 FIA Formula OneTM Championship. Axalta has a long-lasting relationship with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport as Official Team Supplier, and the company’s premium global refinish brand Spies Hecker has been on the team’s race cars for more than five years. Axalta’s Spies Hecker paint ensures that the cars are light, durable and can withstand the extreme track conditions, while also looking stunning.
