DuPont Launches WB-X4789 Mercedes 047 Alubeam Silver

Published September 17, 2012
DuPont Refinish has extended its range of Cromax special factory packed colors by introducing the Mercedes 047 Alubeam Silver—WB-X4789—to answer the growing demand for aftermarket solutions to liquid silver “alu-shine” effects.

The new waterborne basecoat color, available in 0.5-liter tins, has been developed with the inclusion of a Hydroshine pigment to specifically match the Mercedes color Alubeam Silver.

“Over the last two years we’ve expanded the number of factory packed colors DuPont Refinish offers its bodyshops,” said Ann De Clerck, color marketing manager, DuPont Refinish EMEA. “Thanks to the liquid silver trend, the silver mirror-effect is becoming very popular. With our close links to our OEM division, we are able to rise to these trends quickly and allow our refinishers to meet aftermarket demands. We anticipate this trend will continue to grow so it is important the color is widely available for future use.”

Due to its aluminum flakes, the new Mercedes color requires a special application technique. DuPont Refinish has compiled a dedicated technical data sheet for the two colors that use this technique - Mercedes 047 Alubeam Silver and Nissan KAB Silver.
