Axalta launches Tech Tips Global Paint Defects video series to help bodyshops prevent and fix common problems
1 MARCH 2022 – Axalta, a leading global supplier of automotive paints and coatings, has launched an ongoing series of refinish training videos designed to help automotive repair bodyshops deal with troublesome, yet common paint defects.
The first six videos are available now, to view free of charge. The videos cover a range of issues refinishers deal with regularly, including poor paint adhesion on plastic parts, solvent popping, peroxide bleeding, water spotting, poor opacity and correct sanding. The videos also showcase the truly global nature of Axalta’s Refinish business, with presenters representing Axalta Refinish training leaders from EMEA, the US, Australia and Asia.
Each tutorial video is no longer than four minutes and explains the nature of each defect, how it is caused, and offers solutions for fixing the problem, and, crucially, advice on how to prevent suboptimal results occurring in the first place.
Tony Mitchell, International Training Leader for Axalta’s Refinish business in Europe, Middle East and Africa, says, "We know our bodyshops strive for 100% customer satisfaction so it is always disappointing when preventable issues affect the quality of paint finishes. This series of videos support refinishers not only to excel at the paint repair process, but also to add value for their customers around the world every single time. What’s more, the videos are accessible to everyone, so we are pleased to offer our wealth of coatings experience to everyone, Axalta customer or not.”
