Published on 2007-11-19. Author : SpecialChem

Sassenheim, the Netherlands -- Sikkens Colorbuild Plus is a multifunctional system that can be used for both sanding and non-sanding applications. You only need one system for any type of repair. Sikkens Colorbuild Plus can be applied directly to metal, plastics and OEM coated panels. The right spraying mix is easy to achieve with a limited range of Sikkens ancillary products.

So why should Sikkens Colorbuild Plus be your first choice? Because it offers so many benefits, including:

  • The unique, versatile color concept will guarantee excellent color accuracy of the basecoat, even for the 'difficult colors'.
  • It can be directly applied to metals, plastics and OEM electro-coated panels: no additional primer layer is needed.
  • Sanding is fast and easy.
  • Maximum flexibility: greyshades and colors make any kind of repair possible.
  • Reduced topcoat usage, thanks to superior coverage in fewer coats.
  • Reduced visibility of stonechips increases customer satisfaction.
  • It can be mixed with Colorbuild, thereby minimizing waste, paint costs and the environmental impact.
  • It's fully VOC compliant for both sanding and non-sanding applications.

You can rely on Sikkens' reputation for superb color accuracy. Colorbuild Plus is the first true color primer system in the market, providing an undercoat that closely matches any car body color. That means a perfect color match can be obtained faster and at lower cost. The increase in bodyshop profitability far exceeds what can be achieved with the conventional grey and tintable primers. Colorbuild Plus can be applied directly to metal and plastics, saving you precious time.

Colorbuild Plus also offers all the top-quality application properties, cuts sanding time and has excellent flow that customers have come to expect of the Sikkens brand. It sprays smoothly, has a high build, dries very fast and sands quickly and easily.

Sikkens Colorbuild Plus makes any repair job faster and easier. Ask your Akzo Nobel Car Refinishes representative for a demonstration and give yourself the Sikkens Colorbuild Plus advantage.
