Chemspec’s METALUX Is the Starring Paint in ‘Fast & Furious 5’

Requiring fast drying times and exceptional matching capability, the choice for them was METALUX. Consider the pressures of filming budgets combined with the need for quick turn-around times on repair of the stunt vehicles — particularly in vehicle intensive action films like the "Fast & Furious" series, featured vehicles often get damaged in the stunts. It is vital to repair and get back to filming as soon as possible. Even more so in this case as the production team required many different refinishes and color changes, as well as matting base finishes and some special effects that were made possible thanks to the advances in technology that this paint line offers.  


Color was also a critical requirement and with over 140,000 color options, METALUX has the comprehensive color system they needed, Chemspec says. In this filming, many variations of color were needed for the movie because it included some past signature colors from previous exclusive models while introducing some new colors to be released with the movie in 2011. In the end, over 70 different cars were refinished with METALUX for the filming in Puerto Rico.  

Full expert installation and support by Advanced Wholesale Distributors enabled METALUX mixing equipment and toners to actually be on the movie set, thus providing instant access to all color tools.  A METALUX Certified Technician was also on set to demonstrate the METALUX System. Chemspec says the production team was so satisfied with METALUX that most of its products were taken to Atlanta, where the movie is scheduled to continue filming.
