Refinish businesses are faced with a unique challenge: how can they protect their workers, customers, and the environment while providing quality results in a timely manner? Low VOC levels and shorter process times are key for refinish businesses to ensure that they meet local regulations, create a safer environment for their bodyshops and painters, and use less energy.

Let’s look at how Glasurit can achieve sustainability and efficiency through products, together with smart and carefully designed processes.
Minor to moderate repairs become incredibly major in the era of digital safety systems in vehicles. The profitability of doing such repairs is therefore essential for businesses. Glasurit RATIO Spot Repair is a process with clearly defined steps and products that provides an economical way for bodyshops to repair small damages such as scratches, stone chipping dents, and cosmetic blemishes at high standards. Glasurit One Stop is a multi-working bay (MWB) that combines all paint process-related equipment, tools, and consumable materials in one place to avoid vehicle movements during the paint process, increasing efficiency by up to 35%.
In terms of products, Glasurit’s solutions include an innovative range of UV-A solutions for the entire repair process. UV-A technology is a smart way to complete car repairs, offering a vast array of benefits to bodyshops, from significantly faster curing times that use less energy to better hardness, durability, and chemical resistance. It is simply a faster, cleaner, and safer way to complete repairs. The 839-171 UV bodyfiller and 151-170 UV primer filler accelerate processes for repairing minor and moderate damage, offering outstanding adhesion to metal and plastic and, with radiation from a UV-A lamp, drying at the speed of light.
Glasurit 285-270 primer filler provides direct-to-metal properties that combine the outstanding corrosion protection attributes of epoxy technology with the excellent properties of two-component high solids primer fillers for the first time. This means saving material as well as a complete work step. For basecoat, Glasurit’s 90 line basecoat system is the most successful waterborne basecoat system in the refinish industry due to its outstanding hiding power and perfect harmony of the basecoat and colour system. Its low material consumption and short process time also provide bodyshops with increased savings and higher productivity. Lastly, Glasurit 923-610 clearcoat is a good example of a fast-drying, low VOC product that needs no flash-off time and provides an excellent finish after only 10-15 minutes in the oven at 60°C panel temperature or 30-45 minutes
