Bodyshops are faced with a permanent dilemma. Despite rising market requirements, especially from key account customers, rates are not keeping pace. So efficient and energy-saving work processes are becoming increasingly important for bodyshops. However, implementing them can be a challenge. Standox reacted quickly and early by developing an innovative application technique.
Refinishing in a single-step process offers bodyshops a significant gain in efficiency.
After the introduction of Standofix 2K Compact coating in the 1980s, Standox presented a new process to the industry at Automechanika in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1992. This process attracted a lot of attention at the time as it significantly accelerated the paint process for basecoats. It was One Visit Application. The technology that was so revolutionary at the time is still just as pioneering today. In a time when the pressure of speed coupled with accuracy is becoming ever greater, an increase in efficiency can quickly translate to a significant competitive advantage. Standox has continued refining the process over the years and today is still one of the leaders in this area.
Many of the products developed over the following years stood out for their ability to be applied in a single-step process. Take for example Standocryl 2K Clearcoat 20-60 as well as the internationally established Standohyd Plus and Standoblue basecoat systems. The result that the single-step refinish process produces is excellent and in no way inferior to the two and a half coats traditional application method. The VOC Xtra Filler, introduced in 2012, completes the range and means the entire refinish process - from filler to clear - can be completed with One Visit Application.
