AkzoNobel completes Sikkens 2.0 installation for AW Repair Group

AkzoNobel has completed the installation of its Sikkens Autowave 2.0 paint system across AW Repair Group’s network of repair centres in the UK.

As a returning customer, AW Repair Group says the range of Sikkens products provide a comprehensive solution that aligns with its long-term business strategy and the growing electric and hybrid vehicle parc.

The Sikkens Autowave 2.0 paint system, including the Autoclear 2.0 clearcoat, will also help AW Repair Group continue to deliver on its commitment to the PAS2060 carbon neutrality standard, thanks to its low solvent emissions.

Claimed to be one of the most eco-friendly clearcoats on the market, its fast-drying, low-bake characteristics will enable greater efficiency and flexibility across the group’s network of 11 repair centres, according to AkzoNobel.

Steve Hoe, technical development and VM manager at AW Repair Group, says: ““Converting our repair centres to the Sikkens 2.0 system was a very smooth process with a clear plan produced to include product delivery, installation and staff training – all of which were carried out with great efficiency and ease. It’s been a pleasure to work with both the sales and technical teams at AkzoNobel.”
