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.

In just a short time on the market, Paraglaze Ultraseal AP-6000 has established a strong following thanks to its ability to save valuable labour time. Designed for use in Wet-On-Wet mode, this transparent sealer and adhesion promoter is a versatile tool for tackling a range of applications but is particularly ideal when used over sound OEM electrocoat on new panels.
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.
After a massive overhaul of its refinish product portfolio over the past two years, there’s still no stopping the Protec brand as it continues to go from strength to strength. Now it’s the turn of the Commercial Transport (CT) sector to reap the benefits thanks to the launch of Paragaze CT. It combines the new Paraglaze Tinter System (which has received outstanding customer feedback since its launch in mid 2013) with a selection of specialised primers and a clearcoat which have been specifically tuned to the requirements of local CT refinishers.
Whatever the heavy vehicle (from trucks, buses and coaches to larger trailers and tankers), the new Paraglaze CT formulations offer high productivity solutions that help you get the job done quickly and efficiently. Once again, this is a Protec product which is Australian developed and manufactured specifically to suit local conditions and that’s a clear advantage for users, according to Steve Palanechka, Protec Refinish National Sales Manager.
An all new brand of refinish consumables is quickly making a name for itself in the market and it happens to be a perfect fit with Protec’s own philosophy of offering dependable, high quality products at a value for money price. Indeed, the launch of Startline now gives bodyshop businesses the opportunity to help reduce their costs without the need to compromise on quality and performance. To do that, the local Startline Team searched the globe to find high performance products and then tested them under local conditions to ensure each and every one delivers reliable quality, excellent productivity and long service life, yet at a cost effective price.
It’s difficult to see how the launch could have gone any better, according to Protec Refinish National Sales Manager, Steve Palanechka. From the moment the all new, locally developed and manufactured Paraglaze Tinter System began rolling out across the region, the feedback has been outstanding.
When most people think of an MG they picture a sleek, two door British sports car with wire wheels and a canvas roof but the company also made some stylish saloons, such as this rather rare 1949 MGY example which was restored by Neil Wakeman. The car had been last registered in 1970 when Neil acquired it in 2009 and spent three years returning it to its former glory.
