Sikkens Launches exceptionally versatile, VOC-compliant Clearcoat

Published on 2006-04-14. Author : SpecialChem

Sassenheim, the Netherlands -- Akzo Nobel Car Refinishes introduces Sikkens Autoclear LV Superior. Using the latest technology, this high quality, VOC-compliant LV clearcoat delivers a superior finish at all drying speeds.

Sikkens has perfected clearcoat technology to deliver maximum advantage and profitability to bodyshops.

Not only does the Sikkens Autoclear LV Superior range comply with EU 2007 VOC legislation, it gives bodyshops complete control over the speed and quality of the painting process. The range of fast, medium and slow clearcoats and reducers plus Sikkens Autoclear LV Superior hardener can be combined for optimum results, whatever the air temperature, size of repair or time constraints. The longer the drying time, the higher the gloss finish that can be achieved.

It's so easy to apply that very little training is required, even for staff who have not used VOC-compliant clearcoats before. The large application window means that fewer errors are made, reducing the possibility of having to re-do work. All this adds up to faster throughput of repairs, enhancing the bodyshop's overall efficiency and profitability.

Sikkens Autoclear LV Superior brims with technical innovation, but quality is still uppermost. With excellent flow and gloss levels, Sikkens Autoclear LV Superior delivers a superior finish at all drying speeds. Its high gloss finish is easy to polish and highly scratch- resistant.
