In the case of a white coating, this substantial improvement in solid content means that a coating line with a normal annual paint consumption of 60 tons can reduce this amount to 45 tons. This translates into 750 fewer pails of paint that need to be transported and kept in a climate-controlled warehouse.
Beckqua Color was developed from the scratch, thoroughly tested by external institutes as well as in-house and is now available on the market. The product is currently in line trials at several suppliers of bumpers for large automotive OEM’s in Europe and already in serial production at suppliers of mirror caps.
“From the start, we aimed for more than just bringing a ‘me-too’ product to the market. I am very happy that we have succeeded to develop a technology with very distinctive competitive advantages. We believe the multiple benefits of Beckqua Color speak for themselves and expect to start deliveries before the end of 2018,” said Ignacio Perera, business line manager APE, Beckers Germany.
