Air drying solutions

Maintain body shop productivity during power outages

Fill out for more information

In the car refinish industry, quality of the finished paintwork and ease of application go hand in hand with productivity focus. Recently, the increased load shedding outages have had a detrimental effect on body shop efficiency, especially when new paint systems need to be applied and cured. Any delay in this process affects the shop’s throughput, and thus its profitability and customer satisfaction.

Air-drying solutions from Octoral can help. Our products cure at room temperature and are therefore not dependent on power to heat the spray booth.

Choose from a range of Octoral air-drying body fillers, primers and clears.
