Spies Hecker introduces new Race Clear Coat


Spies Hecker launches its Permasolid HS Race Clear Coat 8700, a clear coat that its says is particularly fast and reliable.

The simple application starts with the mixing ratio: it is adjusted 2:1 with the Permasolid Race Hardener 3470 and with ten per cent of Race Additive 9070. The clear coat is applied in two sprays with a short flash-off time. Thanks to its low viscosity, it is particularly easy to work with, which provides excellent wetting of the surface resulting in very smooth flow and good holdout.

“Permasolid HS Race Clear Coat 8700 is a powerful all-rounder with impeccable staying power,” says Kevin Welling, Training Academy Manager for Axalta Coating Systems in the UK and Ireland.

“It’s reliable and the right choice for every repair, from minor damage repair to full resprays. The brilliant results speak for themselves.” He added.

And for seamless blending in areas, Spies Hecker also offers the new Permacron Race Blender 1070.

Welling continued: “Thanks to the clear coat’s rapid hardening, repaired body parts can be further processed immediately after baking and after a short cooling period, you can polish and assemble.”
