Axalta Coating Systems announced it will exhibit at the SEMA show Nov. 1-4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. The SEMA show is regarded as the premier automotive and specialty products event worldwide. Axalta will offer live product and skill demonstrations, introduce new custom colors, and reveal an iconic classic car restoration within Axalta’s over 5,200 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.
Themed “Engineered for Speed,” Axalta’s outdoor space (booth no. 61009) features a fully-functional Global Finishing Solutions paint booth with infrared technology that allows visitors to experience the speed of Axalta’s highly-productive, wet-on-wet waterborne technology.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to view pinstriping demonstrations and a collection of classic, restored and custom vehicles. From 12 to 5 p.m., the booth will feature a pedal car shootout.
“Our goal is to provide an engaging exhibit where visitors can truly experience the products and innovation that Axalta offers,” said Mike Carr, Axalta president – North America. “From the application of our products during live demos, to the end result reflected on beautiful restorations and dozens of vehicles on display finished with our products, the exceptional quality and performance of Axalta brands will be proudly featured for visitors to see and enjoy.”
