Inspired by nature, delivered by technology – new innovative Standocryl Matt Clear System from Standox for professional right-first-time repairs
20 September 2022 – Standox introduces its new Matt Clear System, comprising two products: Standocryl 2K System Clear Super Matt K9150 and Standocryl 2K System Clear Satin Gloss K9140. Formulated with significantly smaller, state-of-the-art pigment size, these two new matt clears deliver professional right-first-time results every time.
The intermixable Standocryl 2K System Clear Super Matt K9150 and Standocryl 2K System Clear Satin Gloss K9140 are best-in-class, enabling refinishers to match the widest range of OEM production finish gloss levels, from matt (5GU) to semi-matt (65GU).
Harald Klöckner, Axalta International Training Leader and Refinish Product Specialist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, says, “Many OEM finishes are often inspired by nature’s matt finishes, and with our new Matt Clear System, we are also providing high-quality inspiration. As the refinish experts, we have a responsibility to develop a new matt clear system so our refinishers can deliver right-first-time, high-quality matt finishes, with consistent, reproducible results and low stockholding – just as you would expect from Standox.”
Using the latest innovation from Axalta and formulated for use with Standoblue Basecoat or Standohyd Plus Basecoat, as well as Standox Basecoat or original paintwork, refinishers can now identify matt colours on the Genius iQ spectrophotometer. They can also find the correct matt colour match formula, quickly and easily, with the Standox advanced digital colour management software, Standowin iQ. Once applied, the two new clears offer improved colour and effect pigment clarity, meaning a much less grey or milky appearance. They set the bar high for high-quality results, with an excellent homogenous, uniform finish and no patchiness, even at very low gloss levels. Standocryl 2K System Clear Super Matt K9150 and Standocryl 2K System Clear Satin Gloss K9140 provide a robust application for panel, multi-panel and general repairs.
“Refinishers who use this best-in-class system will not only benefit from incredibly reliable results, but also will benefit from a significant reduction of up to 35% in drying times compared to existing systems, helping with energy savings,” adds Klöckner.
They also make the work of our painters easier as they do not require a special additive for plastics and the 800ml cans can easily be stirred by hand.
The Standocryl 2K System Clear Super Matt K9150 and Standocryl 2K System Clear Satin Gloss K9140 are commercially available from September 2022.
