Standox continues development of Xtreme System

In order to paint new parts quickly and with high quality, Standox has extended its successful Xtreme System with the new VOC-Xtreme Wet-on-Wet Filler U7650.

When used with Standohyd Plus or Standoblue basecoats and VOC-Xtreme Clear K9580, refinishers achieve a first-class coating on new parts in just 36 minutes.

Standox also offers a quick-drying sanding filler – Standocryl VOC-Xtreme Filler U7600 – for all other repairs. Spray booth time can be reduced by 25 per cent with this System so bodyshops can significantly increase its throughput.

The advantage of the Xtreme System is its fast-drying times at 60°C, 40°C and even 20°C. Refinishers can make the choice about how to use it, depending on how busy the bodyshop is. They can either rely on the system for speed, and short spray booth throughput, or on reduced energy consumption when there are fewer vehicles waiting to be repaired.

The VOC-Xtreme Wet-on-Wet Filler U7650 sets new standards for coating new parts, not only with short flash-off times, but also with its outstanding holdout on vertical surfaces and a particularly good topcoat appearance. To achieve the maximum throughput, the filler can be overcoated or lightly sanded after only five minutes. The new filler is available in white, grey and black.

Like all other products in the Xtreme System, the filler can be easily and reliably applied and produces high-gloss results after clearcoat application.

The entire Standox Xtreme System, using patented Axalta technology, can be dried at 40°C or even 20°C, making it very energy efficient. The short drying times also allow for bodyshops to carry out ‘one day repair service’, the Standox process to repair a vehicle and return it to the customer on the same day.
