Repair solution: Spies Hecker expands its range with a new clear coat additive

For an intense depth of shade: Spies Hecker introduces Permasolid® Clear Coat Color Additive 9048, a new additive for accurate paint repair of special red colours

Car manufacturers continue to focus on intense colours and complex effects. For the bodyshop, these shades are often an interesting challenge, as the repair requires special techniques. Spies Hecker, the global refinish brand from Cologne, Germany, has responded to these trends with a number of different additives for clear coats. Dietmar Wegener, Spies Hecker's Colour Management Specialist for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, says: "Our goal is to offer refinishers very specific support in order to make their work easier. This is especially true of popular shades that achieve deep brilliance through tinted clear coats, so it is important for us to develop suitable repair solutions.”

Colour additive for intense reds

The latest product from Spies Hecker is the Permasolid Clear Coat Color Additive 9048. It is the ninth clear coat additive in the range and is particularly suitable for the repair of the new colour Soul Red Crystal from Mazda. The refinisher adds the additive to the clear coat in accordance with the information in the colour formula and applies as usual in a two-coat process.

Impressive effect from a small amount

When repairing vehicles with tinted clear coats, very little of the special additive is needed, which is why, Spies Hecker offers all colour additives in economical 100ml tins.

For more information, bodyshops can contact their Spies Hecker customer service representative.
