Now that Protec Select Distributors are stocking SATA spray equipment, consumers have been quick to take advantage. While the company’s industry leading spray guns are high on most shopping lists, there are other high productivity, SATA developed technologies also proving popular, such as the clever RPS Disposable Cup system.
Although it’s already jam-packed with handy information, Protec has managed to squeeze yet another feature onto our website. The new online ‘Colour Match Request’ now provides a quick, easy and streamlined method of asking for a particular colour to be matched in a Protec paint system.
Does it lift your spirits when the Steppenwolf classic hit, ‘Born To Be Wild’, (Google it if you have to!) blasts out of the workshop radio? Do you often find yourself daydreaming about an epic two-wheeled road trip? If the answer is yes or you simply appreciate precision engineered German craftsmanship which includes some extra standout flair, chances are the SATAjet® 5000 B ‘Chopper’ is perfect for you.
A Euro-style backdrop provided the perfect atmosphere for Protec’s official launch of the MAXMEYER® product range at the Expo. Featuring AQUAMAX® Extra waterborne basecoat, along with high efficiency primers and clearcoats, this is a complete low-VOC solution. Its advanced technology formulations simply blew away common perceptions that waterborne refinish systems are slow and difficult to use, says Protec National Sales Manager, Steve Palanechka.
Truly useful advances in technology are also user-friendly and this is a clear-cut advantage of Protec’s new waterborne range, the AQUAMAX® Extra waterborne basecoat system, which will be on show at the Collision Repair Expo. Thanks to a link to the highly respected MAXMEYER® brand, Protec is proud to offer this pure-bred low-VOC system which features proven European waterborne technology. Utilizing advanced formulations, the AquaMax® Extra paint system delivers the best of both worlds – a simplified waterborne refinish process, along with maximised paint shop productivity. It’s also a complete low-VOC solution – including high performance primers and clearcoats – which makes it ideal for bodyshops looking to comply with market pressures to use a low-VOC refinish option.
Advances in technology are essential for keeping the industry moving forward but there’s no point if it is then too complex to get the full benefit from. True gains come from high technology which is also easy to use and this is a clear-cut advantage of Protec’s outstanding new waterborne range, AQUAMAX® Extra.
Extensive experience is something you find with all of Protec®’s field support staff and Stefan Van der Stelt is no exception. In fact, his experience began with growing up around his father’s bodyshop in Germany, before he joined the business as a paint technician in the mid-1980s. Along with developing his trade skills, Stefan also did a two year stint in the German Army and spent some time in the power generation industry.
