Autopaint Supplies has it covered with Mipa PUR HS

Autopaint Supplies represents the VOC-compliant paint system Mipa PUR HS for commercial vehicles, which combines long lasting expertise with new solutions through research and development.

With a small number of mixing tinters the system covers the complete spectrum of solid colours for commercial vehicles.

“Colour systems such as RAL, NCS, British Standard, truck colours of all common brands, fleet colours and colours of agricultural and construction machines are available,” said Autopaint Supplies, Business Development Manager, Ciaran Fox.

Mipa PUR HS can be applied in different hardener combinations. The well-known 2:1 ratio with Mipa MS-Hardeners is ideal for manual application by spray-gun.

The use of concentrated HS or even VHS Hardeners allows for an adjustment of the system to automated 2K applicators, airless paintwork or spraying robots without having to change the paint itself.

All combinations result in a VOC value of less than 420 g/ltr. if the thinner addition is kept according to the product information.

The high solid content of Mipa PUR HS makes significant savings in material and time consumption possible.

“With an excellent flow, durable gloss and highest resistance values costs can be actively reduced and at the same time quality of the paintwork can be increased,” Ciaran explained.

Mipa PUR HS is compatible with all established Mipa commercial vehicle products and can even be used with water based Mipa primers.

Mipa PUR 2K HS chassis paints have a VOC, value of less than 420 g/ltr. Chassis paint is available ready mixed in standard as well as in special colours and comes with attractive pricing.

“The wide selection of primers / fillers, hardeners and additives means there is an optimal solution for every commercial vehicle paint problem.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s a total respray, or a small localised repair, the results are always the same – a high quality finish.
