El Paso Dealership Shop Switches to Waterborne with Sherwin-Williams

Rudolph Chevrolet and Rudolph Honda – El Paso, Texas-area dealerships with a combined collision repair facility, Rudolph Body & Paint – announced they have transitioned the shop to waterborne basecoat from solvent-based systems using the AWX Waterborne Basecoat System from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corporation (SWAFC).
AWX is a waterborne basecoat system that uses a proprietary resin technology that behaves like a solventborne system. AWX offers up to a 96% decrease in VOC emissions compared to other solventborne coatings.

“We’re very pleased to switch to this new coating system and will continue to give our customers superior results for their collision repairs as well as help to improve our air quality,” said Rudolph Body & Paint owner Dennis Neessen. “We didn’t switch because we had to, but because it’s a win-win situation: By transitioning to the new AWX system we’ve made a commitment to our customers and our community.”

Pete Solis, body shop manager, added that he appreciates the training and on-site assistance offered by SWAFC.
