A Euro-style backdrop provided the perfect atmosphere for Protec’s official launch of the MAXMEYER® product range at the Expo. Featuring AQUAMAX® Extra waterborne basecoat, along with high efficiency primers and clearcoats, this is a complete low-VOC solution. Its advanced technology formulations simply blew away common perceptions that waterborne refinish systems are slow and difficult to use, says Protec National Sales Manager, Steve Palanechka.
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.
The epic thrills and spills of one of the most bizarre Bathurst 1000s ever has really captured the imagination of the viewing public and the number 222 Walkinshaw Racing Commodore, complete with distinctive purple Startline branding, was right in the thick of it.
