Suitable paint systems for every application
How do you find the right paint system for your repair work? At Spies Hecker it's easy: In the automobile sector, there are five systems, and another three in the commercial vehicle sector.
The “Automotive refinishing” sector includes the Hi-TEC Performance, Classic and Base systems. High efficiency, easy processing, fast drying – with outstanding appearance, these are the characteristics of the Hi-TEC Performance System. The top products include Permahyd Hi-TEC Basecoat 480, Permasolid HS Speed Filler 5500 and HS Speed Clearcoat 8800, which allow significantly shorter drying times and energy savings. Other primer, filler, topcoat and clearcoat alternatives are also available. "The optimal topcoat holdout, short painting and setting times and fast drying make the Hi-TEC Performance System the ideal solution for paint shops, that value high throughput”, says Joachim Hinz, Spies Hecker Brand Manager for EMEA.
The Classic System is designed to offer simple, reliable application with very good end results. "Classic" includes, among other products, Permahyd Basecoat 280/285, Vario Primer Surfacer 5340, Premium Surfacer 5310 and the new Race Clearcoat 8700 (alternatives are also offered here). Almost all products are approved for automobile series painting. There are also suitable colour systems: in the Hi-TEC Performance System, the ColorDialog Phoenix colorimeter, in the Classic System, the ColorDialog Compact (both in conjunction with Phoenix software). The programme also includes special mixing scales and label printers.
The Base System allows for proven, simple application even under difficult workshop conditions. The products are suitable for value-based paint jobs and impress with their good cost-benefit ratio.
Two additional systems complete the automotive range: The Speed Repair System is used to repair minor paint damage. Its use saves on work time and frees up the spray booth for larger jobs. Many components are also available in SprayMax spray cans. This makes the repair of minor damage, which many drivers would otherwise not have done, affordable. The Plastic Repair System includes components required for paint repair of plastics, including additives for elastification or for setting on matt and textured surfaces.
The core of the systems for “Commercial Vehicle Systems” is the Permafleet Topcoat 670/675. The three systems differ in the complexity of the paint composition: The Hi-Class System is used on sanded surfaces and painted with a sophisticated three- or four-layer structure. It is intended for use on buses or cabs. The Top System is painted in a wet-on-wet process in three or four layers, for example on tank trailers. Lastly, the Economy System is suitable for simple two-coat paintwork, for example on construction-site vehicles. All systems are suitable for large-scale application and offer reliable protection against corrosion as well as mechanical or chemical stress.
