Münster / Buenos Aires -- Perfect paint requires more than a knack for dazzling application. It also needs to be applied professionally and flawlessly. That's why Glasurit, BASF Coatings' automotive refinish paint brand and market leader in Argentina is sponsoring its first contest to find the country's best automotive refinish painter. Numerous automotive refinish specialists have already competed in the regional qualifying rounds. The Grand Final will be taking place as part of the Automechanika Argentina show at the Palermo Tradeshow Forum.

The preliminary competitions took place in 26 districts in Argentina between June and October. They were open to all automotive refinish specialists who work with Glasurit. The innovative contest is the only one of its kind in Argentina and rewards the know-how and professionalism of the young painters.

For this reason, the jury's decision is not only based on the quality of the results. The main criteria also include the time spent, amount of product used, and the quality of the overall process. The assessment is based on the method used, the concrete working steps, and of course, exact compliance with all the rules. In addition, the painters can win bonus points for error identification during the workflow and by mastering additional tasks during the competition.

Says Roberto Di Tomaso, Marketing Manager for BASF Coatings' Automotive Refinish division, "This contest is very important for the company. And it's a huge challenge for the brand. We're looking forward to showing the public the professional qualities of the painters working in this industry in Argentina." The winner of the Grand Final has a lot to look forward to as well. On top of being recognized as Argentina's best automotive refinish specialist, the winner will receive a trip to Brazil.
