DuPont Refinish recently announced the planned March 2012 introduction of two new products designed to improve the coverage of traditionally poor hiding solventborne basecoat colors. While many refinish paint suppliers have been scaling back support for their solventborne paint lines, DuPont Refinish continues to invest in its solvent product portfolio.
DuPont ChromaPremier 62155F and 62165F, is a new binder package specifically designed to improve the coverage of poor hiding colors. The improved hiding binder package can be utilized with both DuPont's ChromaPremier and ChromaBase basecoats. The company said it has reformulated several hundred of the worst hiding OEM colors with an option to use the new binders. DuPont ColorNet, a color retrieval software, will automatically flag poor hiding colors and provide the option to select the new, improved hiding formula.
For collision shops in regulated or soon-to-be regulated areas, or for shops that want the advantage that water brings, DuPont supplies provide its Cromax Pro portfolio.
“These new binders reinforce our commitment to our valued customers who choose to use National Rule products,” said Harry Christman, DuPont Refinish brand manager.
