Standox – enabling more efficient refinishing with One Visit Application

08 March 2024 – Time is money, and in today’s economy, this has never been more accurate. That’s why in any busy bodyshop, energy savings, material consumption, efficient workflow and intelligent division of labour are vital to optimise work processes. The spray booth is just as important; refinishers should optimise their time there too.

The One Visit Application method from Standox, one of the premium refinish brands of Axalta, allows refinishers to pay just one visit to the spray booth, applying filler, basecoat and clear in one-and-a-half or two wet-on-wet passes that follow each other in immediate succession. No flash off time is needed. Bodyshops save not only time, but also materials.  

Harald Klöckner, Axalta International Training Leader and Refinish Product Specialist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, says, “Since Standox unveiled One Visit Application at Automechanika in 1992 over 30 years ago, it has been the refinishing technique on which efficiency, energy and material savings are built and there is no need to compromise on quality. It’s a gamechanger, particularly if we calculate the time saved over an entire day of work.”

One Visit Application is of economic benefit to larger bodyshops that have a higher throughput. In view of sky-high energy costs, One Visit Application is also suitable for smaller and medium-sized bodyshops as every minute saved in the spray booth cuts energy bills and positively impacts a bodyshops’ bottom line.

The innovative Standox Xtreme System, based on Axalta’s in-house and patented Fast Cure Low Energy technology, can be used as part of One Visit Application. The Xtreme System, which offers bodyshops exceptionally fast process times and low energy consumption, includes Express Prep Wipes U3000, VOC-Xtreme Wet-on-Wet Filler U7650, VOC-Xtreme Filler U7600, Standoblue Basecoat and the Standocryl VOC-Xtreme-Plus Clear K9600.

“All One Visit Application products offer the premium product quality and support that comes as standard with Standox, so bodyshops can rest assured they will continue to get right-first-time results. One Visit Application can deliver an important competitive advantage to bodyshops at a time when they are under increasing pressure to improve efficiency,” says Klöckner.
