Standox launches new clearcoat

Standox has launched its Standocryl VOC Performance Pro Clear K9590, a fast and easy-to-use clearcoat.

Standox says its new clearcoat, based on a forward-looking technology, offers very good flow and high gloss. Thanks to the low spray viscosity, it can be easily applied in two spray passes with just a short flash-off time. It is suitable for all car repairs – from small area repairs to full re-sprays.

“Excellent results can be achieved with the new Standocryl VOC Performance Pro Clear K9590,” says Kevin Welling, Training Academy Manager for Axalta Coating Systems in the UK and Ireland.

The drying of Standocryl VOC Performance Pro Clear K9590 can be flexibly adapted to a bodyshop’s individual operating procedures. Welling adds: “Its flexibility means every bodyshop can benefit from this new clearcoat”

At only 40 degrees Celsius, the clear dries within 30 minutes. These low drying temperatures can save operational energy costs and contribute to greater overall bodyshop efficiency. By contrast, if the bodyshop is focused fast processes, Standocryl VOC Performance Pro Clear dries at 60 degrees Celsius object temperature in just 15 minutes, according to Standox.

Standocryl VOC Performance Pro Clear K9590 is ready for further processing very quickly; polishing and assembly of vehicle parts can begin immediately after cooling, which allows a complete repair in one day.

Welling says, “The Performance Pro product range consists of the clear, associated Performance Hardener VOC 15-30, the Standocryl VOC 2K Performance Additive 5870 and the Performance Blend 5730, which provides soft fade zones. It’s a special range that enables every bodyshop to work efficiently while at the same time maintaining the usual Standox high quality.”
