AkzoNobel Schedules U.S. Launch of Wanda Waterbase Basecoat System

After being launched into the Canadian collision repair market segment in February, AkzoNobel’s highly anticipated Wanda Waterbase basecoat system will be available to the U.S. collision repair industry in the early second quarter of 2011.

Built on Wanda’s core proposition of simplicity, color and value, AkzoNobel says the new Wanda Waterbase basecoat system provides an easy-to-use, low-VOC option that helps make the process of “going green” simple and affordable. Offering simplified mixing ratios, segment-leading color documentation, and “right-the-first-time” color matching capabilities, Wanda Waterbase is ideal for use on small repairs or total re-sprays, AkzoNobel says.
"We’re very excited about what this system brings to U.S. collision repair professionals because it delivers the same great simplicity, color accuracy and value that our Wanda products are known for," said Mark Rapson, AkzoNobel’s business manager of Trade Brands, North America. "This means body shops can be confident in achieving compliance, without compromising the performance they depend on. And with fewer components to worry about, they’ll also save on inventory costs."
Doug Holmberg, AkzoNobel’s Aerospace and Automotive Coatings director of sales, Vehicle Refinish, North America adds, “The Wanda Waterbase system is a perfect complement to our family of waterborne brands and represents another great example of AkzoNobel’s commitment to providing the collision repair industry with product options that are tailored to their needs.”
