Raising the bar with Sikkens Autosurfacer UV

Sikkens Autosurfacer UV, from AkzoNobel, is a one component, quick-drying primer filler ready to use right out of the can – there’s no mixing, simply shake and you’re ready to go.

Launched this year, Autosurfacer UV is one of the fastest curing fillers in the market, with only 5 minutes UV-A curing required. Feedback from bodyshops on Autosurfacer UV confirms how it enables bodyshops to speed up repairs, eliminate bottlenecks, reduce cycle times and get more vehicles through the shop floor every day.

Peter Daly, Managing Director for AkzoNobel in Ireland, commented: “We believe Sikkens Autosurfacer UV is truly a cut above other fillers. With no wash primer required on metal substrates before application, application being so easy, drying times extremely short and sanding possible immediately after drying with no need for cooling down the product is making a real difference to bodyshop performance and profitability.”
