First Automotive Vehicle with 100% Paintfilm Exterior

SpecialChem / Jul 29, 2009

Carbon Motors Corporation is a homeland security company focused on a highly specific mission: developing, manufacturing, distributing and servicing the world's first purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle. The Carbon Motors 'E7' law enforcement vehicle will be the world's first car with a 100% paintfilm thermoplastic exterior developed with Fluorex® Paintfilm from Soliant, LLC. The homeland security company announced plans to develop a production facility in the United States, and the vehicle was exhibited in several cities in the latter part of 2008 on a tour that continues in 2009. Soliant's Fluorex Paintfilm that will be used in the vehicle's production is on over 50 million components worldwide, demonstrating excellent durability as well as chip, weather and chemical resistance. "Our law enforcement officers deserve the best technologies, and we have to be both fiscally responsible and environmentally conscientious with our manufacturing," said Alan J. Bratt, Executive Vice President and Chief Production Officer of Carbon Motors Corporation.
