BASF Launches New R-M® Waterborne Product in Canada

Published on 2008-04-17. Author : SpecialChem

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- BASF Canada has announced that it has launched a new member of its popular R-M brand. Onyx HD is a high performance, environmentally-compliant waterborne automotive refinish coating that is completely compliant with upcoming Canadian environmental regulations.

The Onyx HD line makes life easier for the automotive refinisher because it is easy to apply, offers excellent covering power, complies fully with environmental regulations, and is safer to use than solvent-based products. In addition, Onyx HD tinting bases have no shelf-life limitations and will not freeze.

"We are really excited to offer Onyx HD to our customers and potential customers," said Antonio Leandres, RM Product Manager for BASF in North America. "Collision repair centers that have already converted to this product line experienced a very short learning curve and are thrilled with the product compliance and performance."
