Axalta’s Fast Cure Low Energy technology is said to reduce energy consumption in the spray booth while still achieving the best quality repair.
Based on chemistry that uses both temperature and ambient humidity to accelerate the drying process, the full product system delivers a balance between high speed and low baking energy consumption, while providing the highest quality finish.
It is proven to lower the energy costs of running a direct gas-fired combi spray booth by approximately 75% based on a typical 30 minute, 60°C bake cycle. It is the only refinish system that can be dried at lower baking temperatures, or at air dry temperatures of 20°C, and still have the productivity of traditional systems.
Bodyshops can opt to use this speed of performance to offer rapid repair services that will increase their profitability, says the company.
At a time when bodyshops are facing a significant energy crisis that will eat into already pressurised margins, this technology will be an absolute lifeline, according to Axalta.
