MAKE YOUR PAINT JOB SPLASH
Painting a vehicle, to the public, seems like a simple enough task. I mean, most of us have been painting since we were two feet tall. Of course, what we in the collision repair industry know for a fact, is that painting a vehicle is hard.
And to do it well? Even harder. Paint is fickle. It dries differently depending on the temperature, the airflow, and the amount of static in a room. If the environment in which it is applied is not ideal, the results of even the most well-trained industry professional will be disappointing. And a bad finish is sure to leave a lasting bad taste in any client’s mind.
Fortunately, more and more tools are being offered to ensure that auto painters in the collision repair profession can work in ideal conditions each and every time. In fact, a swath of new technologies are constantly arriving on the market to simplify, speed, and sharpen the work being done by auto painters in repair facilities across the world. From new colour-matching technologies promising results that rival even the sharpest- eyed colour matcher, to spray booths, spray guns, and other accessories equipped with space-age features—some of which even seem to defy the laws of gravity.
These options can be overwhelming, but the thought of making the paint hardware purchasing decisions for your business does not need to make you feel yellow—or a sickly shade of green.
If paint hardware is keeping you up at night— and don’t worry, we’ve all been there—then Collision Repair magazine team has the cure. Over the next few pages, you will find profiles from across the paint hardware spectrum.
