Axalta launches the Imlar® 4:1 AV system for automotive refinishing customers in Mexico. This quick-drying system has high-viscosity properties resulting in a smoother appearance in only one coat, saving time and money for Axalta’s refinish customers in Mexico.


New System Reduces Drying Times

The three-product system is easily applied in various climates and delivers superior gloss and maximum leveling, which reduces drying times and the need for polishing. The products used in the Imlar 4:1 AV system are:

  • 930SM AV 2K filler primer, which has short air-drying times and is easy to sand
  • Bikapa® Plus basecoat, which provides excellent appearance
  • Klarity® AV IW500 2K clearcoat, which helps achieve the appropriate thickness with the least amount of effort, offers good leveling, gloss and appearance differentiation designed for use on all types of repairs.

When we developed the Imlar 4:1 AV system, we worked closely with master painters to understand their needs and create a product that increases their productivity,” said Marcelo Herrera, business development director, Latin America at Axalta. “This new quick-drying system provides our small- and medium-size body shop customers with an efficient and low-cost solution without sacrificing the appearance quality of the vehicle.”

Axalta offers a wide range of technologies for automotive collision repair, color matching and refinishing that meet and exceed customer expectations. Refinish customers in Mexico can also take advantage of the Painters Club, the company’s loyalty program that rewards master painters with special discounts and rewards.
