Standox is adding twenty-one tints to its Standoblue range of 250ml cans bringing the total number available in this size to 32. Car colours used by vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are becoming increasingly complex and globally 1,000 new car colours come onto the market every year. That means refinishers have to be meticulous when mixing paints if they want their repair to match the original colour accurately. Some tints, in particular those containing special effect pigments, are rarely used and even then only in small volumes. For most bodyshops it is simply uneconomical to store these required but infrequently-used tints in larger quantities.
“Our aim is to supply products that will allow bodyshops to work to the highest quality standards and as efficiently as possible, regardless of throughput,” says Olaf Adamek, Standox EMEA Brand Manager. “These 250ml tints are a smart solution for professional bodyshops because they reduce inventory, cut down on left-over stock and mean less waste. That translates into financial savings and also protects the environment.”
Advances in coatings technology mean these effect tints no longer need to be stirred at the mixing machine, but only need a gentle shake before use.
The additional 21 tints – 11 solid colours and 10 special effect tints – include Rainbow Silver, Sunset Red, Midnight Blue and Mystic Violet and add to the first 11 tints that Standox introduced in Autumn 2013.
The 250ml tins are available by request.
