R-M participated in The 34th Auto Service Show at Booth 421, East Hall 4, Tokyo International Exhibition Center (Tokyo Big Sight) in Tokyo, Japan from June 19 – 21, 2015. At the show, R-M showcased ONYX HD automotive refinish paint system, including its new formulation concept – MIXING BASE W, which will be launched in Japan in Q3 2015.

R-M products are designed to meet the demand for eco-efficiency and to assist bodyshops to increase profitability and productivity. In Japan, R-M is long perceived as one of the market leaders in waterborne refinish paints. The ONYX HD waterborne paint system perfectly matches the automotive refinish industry’s expectation on high product quality and service standards. To better serve bodyshops, MIXING BASE W will be added to the ONYX HD system. This new mixing base concept is recently developed by R-M, which uses a new formulation with a higher pigment content to deliver extraordinary covering power and even greater efficiency when applying an ONYX HD topcoat. It is extremely easy for bodyshops to integrate MIXING BASE W into their regular processes when working with ONYX HD. This simple and effective solution saves the bodyshops time and significantly reduces material consumption.

“R-M has been serving the automotive refinish industry since 1919. Customer satisfaction is very important to us. We are here to help our bodyshop customers to counter time and cost pressure in today’s highly competitive market. R-M’s ONYX HD provides high hiding power and fast flash-off time, which allow bodyshops to save up to 40% basecoat materials and up to 20% booth cycle time,” said Hideo Tadokoro, Senior Manager, Automotive Refinish Coatings Solutions, Coatings, BASF Japan Ltd.

R-M is a total solution provider. Bodyshops can convert to 100% waterborne base coat while enjoying the R-M premium brand service. Visitors could find out more from R-M experts during the show, where they also demonstrated the different tools such as the trend-setting color matching tool, Colormaster and spray guns.
