Any professional bodyshop that strives for optimum efficiency knows that to benefit from the highest possible product performance from the R-M automotive refinish paint system, it's essential that the correct products and processes are used.

With the introduction of two new Prep'Art wall charts from R-M, the perfect process for a wide range of applications is guaranteed. There are two Prep'Art wall charts available, one designed for use with PERFECTFILLER, the other for PROFILLER.

These stylish wall charts are printed in full colour, on poster (60 X 80 cm) and provide very clear and simple guidelines for professional painters, helping to ensure perfect preparation of all common substrates used in modern vehicle construction.

These substrates include steel, galvanised steel and aluminium, with options for damaged or new panels. In addition there is a section for new unprimed plastic panels or those suffering minor damage.

Each section is clearly subdivided into five easy steps, each complemented with pictograms to include sanding and pre-cleaning, body filling and sanding, etch priming or sealing, primerfiller or filler, and finally, sanding and pre cleaning ready for topcoating.

In addition to the clear process guidelines, Prep'Art also features a set of tables showing the mixing ratios for all of the products required to complete each of the processes.

These two new Prep'Art wall charts play a vital part on the efficient day to day running of the bodyshop!
