Does it lift your spirits when the Steppenwolf classic hit, ‘Born To Be Wild’, (Google it if you have to!) blasts out of the workshop radio? Do you often find yourself daydreaming about an epic two-wheeled road trip? If the answer is yes or you simply appreciate precision engineered German craftsmanship which includes some extra standout flair, chances are the SATAjet® 5000 B ‘Chopper’ is perfect for you.
Truly useful advances in technology are also user-friendly and this is a clear-cut advantage of Protec’s new waterborne range, the AQUAMAX® Extra waterborne basecoat system, which will be on show at the Collision Repair Expo. Thanks to a link to the highly respected MAXMEYER® brand, Protec is proud to offer this pure-bred low-VOC system which features proven European waterborne technology. Utilizing advanced formulations, the AquaMax® Extra paint system delivers the best of both worlds – a simplified waterborne refinish process, along with maximised paint shop productivity. It’s also a complete low-VOC solution – including high performance primers and clearcoats – which makes it ideal for bodyshops looking to comply with market pressures to use a low-VOC refinish option.
Advances in technology are essential for keeping the industry moving forward but there’s no point if it is then too complex to get the full benefit from. True gains come from high technology which is also easy to use and this is a clear-cut advantage of Protec’s outstanding new waterborne range, AQUAMAX® Extra.
If you are looking for a measure of just how quickly the Startline® brand has impacted on the local market, consider this – customers have already bought more than one million Startline abrasive discs! Amazingly, this figure doesn’t even include other abrasives, such as sheets, rolls or scourer pads, or any of the other products from the range. Given that the Startline brand was started from scratch early in 2014, it has only taken around six short months to break through this extraordinary milestone. According to Product Specialist, Kurt Way, the brand has quickly established itself and is performing up to the ambitious plans put in place.
Over the past few years, the need to access effective tools to cope with changing industry conditions has seen a growing focus on refinish products which can make a real contribution to increased process speed and efficiency. This saw Protec’s local Research and Development Team swing into action to develop a new clearcoat, PC-4780 Paraglaze Fast Flow Clearcoat, which meets this ‘need for speed’. What’s more, this versatile 3:1 clearcoat combines the speed expected from a fast clearcoat with the excellent clarity and gloss appearance of Protec’s existing PC-3900 Paraglaze Extra Flow Clearcoat, says Steve Palanechka, Protec Refinish National Sales Manager.
An all new consumables brand is introducing Protec-style value. Where Protec’s no-compromise combination of performance and cost effectiveness has established it as ‘the clear choice’ in refinish paint systems, the recently launched Startline brand is carving a similar reputation in the consumables sector.
To match its fresh new product range, Protec has launched a fresh, new-look website. As well as providing a clean, clear web link for customers, the new layout is also designed to reflect Protec’s ‘Clear Choice’ branding. Visitors will immediately notice a more visual and colourful site, with an emphasis on being easy to use and simple to navigate through the various layers of information. Recognising the growing move to portable technology, the Protec website has also been tuned to mobile and touch-screen devices, such as smart phones and tablets. Accessing the website from one of these devices is automatically detected and the viewing resolution is adjusted to suit.
