Spies Hecker launches new Matt Clear System for high-quality matt finishes
Spies Hecker is proud to introduce its new Matt Clear System comprising two products: Permacron Matt System Clear Coat 8185 and Permacron Semi-Gloss System Clear Coat 8170. Formulated specifically for use as part of the Permahyd Hi-TEC Base Coat 480 Systems, as well as Permacron Base Coat 293/295 or original paintwork, these mix together to deliver high-quality OEM matt finishes, of all gloss levels, more quickly and easily than ever before.
Jim Iliopoulos, Axalta’s Product and Technical Manager for Australia, says, “The demand for matt vehicles is growing so refinishers need a system that is easy and reliable. Our newly developed system, based on Axalta technology, with inter-mixable clears means matt refinish repairs are as easy as ‘one plus one’. By mixing Permacron Matt System Clear Coat 8185 and Permacron Semi-Gloss System Clear Coat 8170, refinishers can now effortlessly match the six matt levels used by OEMs – from matt (5GU) to semi-matt (65GU).”
Once applied, the two new clears offer improved colour and effect pigment clarity, meaning a much less grey or milky appearance. They set the bar high for high-quality results, with an excellent homogenous, uniform finish. Permacron Matt System Clear Coat 8185 and Permacron Semi-Gloss System Clear Coat 8170 provide a simpler way to achieve a perfect matt look.
“Refinishers who use this system will not only benefit from incredibly reliable results, but also will benefit from a significant reduction of up to 35% in drying times compared to existing systems, helping with energy savings,” adds Jim.
The Permacron Matt System Clear Coat 8185 and Permacron Semi-Gloss System Clear Coat 8170 are available from March 2023 from your local Spies Hecker distributor.
