An additional hardener now allows refinishers to use Permasolid HS Speed Clear Coat 8800 from Spies Hecker quickly and efficiently even in extreme summer heat.
“High summer temperatures make paint materials perform differently in application than they do at colder times of the year,” says Jörg Sandner, Spies Hecker Training Leader, Germany. This means that, depending on the ambient air temperature and humidity, the clear coat has to be formulated differently.
The right hardener for every climate
With three hardeners, refinishers can, in the bodyshop, adapt Permasolid HS Speed Clear Coat 8800 to different climatic conditions. “The new Permasolid VHS Speed Hardener 3252 long was developed for application at high humidity and very high ambient air temperatures. The Permasolid VHS Hardener 3251 short, on the other hand, is suited for application at temperatures between 10°C and 20°C. The Permasolid VHS Speed Hardener 3250 offers optimal performance for central European temperatures, in other words between 20°C and 30°C,” Sandner explains.
Speed Clear Coat – proven in application
Many refinishers comment positively on the short drying time of Permasolid HS Speed Clear coat 8800, even at low temperatures. This allows bodyshops to save energy and increase the throughput of their spraybooth. “Compared to conventional clearcoats, Permasolid HS Speed Clear coat 8800 offers energy savings of more than 80 per cent,” says Sandner. It also offers the added benefit of being ready to sand and to polish shortly after drying. And Permasolid HS Speed Clear Coat 8800 is an energy-saving, fast drying clear coat that is very well suited for both Permahyd Hi-TEC 480 and Permahyd 280/285 waterborne basecoats.
