News: TechForce Foundation Releases White Paper on Women Techs
Volvo has granted global technical and commercial approval of Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp.’s (SWAFC) AWX waterborne refinish system for use in all certified Volvo collision repair facilities around the world.
AWX is now listed in Volvo Car’s new VIDA (Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for Aftermarket) system, as is the previously approved SWAFC’s ULTRA 7000 Basecoat/Clearcoat System. The additional AWX certification is the result of extensive technical evaluation and rigorous product testing conducted by Volvo to assure the same high-quality materials and aftermarket support as its line production.
SWAFC recently introduced AWX, an innovative waterborne basecoat/clearcoat system that utilizes a proprietary resin system that behaves like the solvent borne systems of today. AWX is designed to meet the strict VOC-emissions limits being adopted in parts of North America and Europe.
Unlike solvent-borne basecoats of the past, AWX ensures up to a 96 percent reduction in VOC emissions while reducing hazardous waste generation, according to Sherwin-Williams.
