Stanford-Allen Chevrolet Cadillac of Monroe, Mich., a new car dealer and collision repair facility, announced it has transitioned its body shop to waterborne basecoat from solvent-based systems in anticipation of new air quality regulations. The body shop is now using the AWX Waterborne Basecoat System from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.
Sherwin-Williams recently introduced AWX, an innovative waterborne basecoat system that utilizes a proprietary resin technology, which allows it to behave like solventborne systems. AWX was designed to be an easy-to-use, high-quality color coating that provides excellent color match and offers up to a 96 percent decrease in VOC emissions compared to other solvent borne coatings.
“We are 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,” says Paul Stanford, owner of Stanford-Allen. “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.”
”When we decided to switch to a waterborne system, choosing Sherwin-Williams as our refinish supplier was an easy choice,” Stanford added. “Not only did they offer an outstanding product line, but their knowledge and on-site assistance in training our technicians made this process a truly seamless transition."
