Volkswagen AG has granted technical approval to AkzoNobel’s Lesonal brand for global use. The approval follows extensive and intensive testing procedures against Volkswagen’s repair specifications to demonstrate Lesonal’s compliance with both U.S. and European standards.
Volkswagen also renewed its approval of Sikkens. Since Volkswagen first approved the Sikkens brand in 1994, AkzoNobel has introduced numerous new products and has continuously upgraded its entire Sikkens product line.
“We’re very pleased to gain approval for Lesonal and re-affirm Volkswagen’s approval of our Sikkens brand,” said Kerstin Stranimaier, director of marketing, AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings. “Volkswagen AG is one of the most highly respected automotive manufacturers in the world, and our relationship with Volkswagen is extremely important.”

“Our ability to deliver the high quality products that meet their discerning standards is of course testimony to the quality of our automotive refinish products.”
