General Motors (GM) has approved the use of Sikkens and Lesonal products from AkzoNobel Car Refinishes for the coming year for GM warranty repair work around the globe.
The approval renews an existing relationship covering selected Sikkens and Lesonal systems and extends it to two new products in 2010: Sikkens Autoclear Superior 250 for the California market and Sikkens Colorbuild Plus, the second generation of the colored primer system introduced by AkzoNobel.
The approval also applies to products sold under private label for repair of Opel brand products.
“We’re delighted to receive this endorsement from General Motors,” said Stefan Wieditz, director R&D, AkzoNobel Car Refinishes OEM Technology. “We’re especially pleased to get approval for Sikkens Autoclear Superior 250 and Sikkens Colorbuild Plus two low-VOC products.”
Sikkens Autoclear Superior 250 is a state-of-the-art clearcoat designed to be used together with Sikkens Autowave, AkzoNobel’s waterborne basecoat.
“We have had a long and very valuable partnership with GM,” said Chuck Mayne, AkzoNobel Car Refinishes key account manager for the Americas. “They know they can depend on AkzoNobel for the highest quality products and outstanding service, as well as leadership in technology and sustainability.”
