Ultimate Heavy Duty Solution
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.
“Before launching Paraglaze CT, we did extensive field trials and the results were excellent, with very positive feedback from customers. In particular, both our customers and the vehicle owners have been absolutely blown away by the gloss levels straight ‘off the gun’. What many people may not realise is that this is the same high quality Paraglaze Tinter System that’s used by car refinishers. Our R&D Team designed it to perform equally well on CT vehicles – there’s no compromise whatsoever! As our car refinish customers have already found, you get excellent opacity which helps reduce application time, along with fast flash-off to boost productivity.
“You need to be able to lay down a solid foundation for each of the different substrates you find on heavy vehicles so we’ve developed a range of CT specific primers to suit. Best of all, these primers (including epoxy, etch, high build and primer-filler products) are designed to need less labour time and less material to get the job done. Our Paraglaze CT Clearcoat is already getting rave reviews and I’m sure users are going to love it for its ease of use, excellent gloss and long lasting durability. Another option that will interest many CT users is the new mono-metallic product which allows you to deal with areas such as chassis, wheels and bull-bars, in a minimal amount of time.
“The launch of Paraglaze CT is even more evidence of Protec’s commitment to supporting the local market. In fact, it goes right to the core of what Protec is all about – great products at a value for money price!”
