End to end repair... the green way


£97.41 WATerBorne CLeArCoAT P910-5510 Nexa Autocolor is committed to developing innovative and environmentally sustainable solutions that are used to maintain, repair and protect cars. Nexa Autocolor is proud to introduce a new Waterborne Clearcoat to offer customers an end to end green repair system. The launch of this new Waterborne Clearcoat builds on the heritage of the world’s first waterborne basecoat technology introduced in 1992, the ground-breaking ‘next generation’ Aquabase Plus basecoats introduced in 2006 and the Eco+ PET primer technology launched in 2012. Developed using the most advanced waterborne clearcoat technology available, the new Waterborne Clearcoat dramatically reduces solvent emissions by 74% when compared to a typical solventborne clearcoat, improving air quality, and allowing Bodyshops to dramatically reduce their emissions without compromising on quality. It is simple to mix and easy to use, benefitting from a ‘one-visit’ application process. The superb gloss levels with continued gloss holdout achieved ensure a quality reproduction of the OE finish.With its one visit application, there is no need for additional bake cycles offering an optimal process to ensure that the bodyshop remains productive and profitable whilst delivering a high quality repair. The addition benefit of the low odour technology used in P910-5510 gives a more pleasant mixing room environment

odyline gripspeed 80mm 3 Hole discs are superior performance discs designed for smart repairs, smaller areas & wheel repairs. By using the smaller discs this makes it possible to keep the repair localised.

By following the Bodyshop Headlamp Refinish Process, a bodyshop can now repair a cosmetically damaged headlamp where previously a costly new unit would be required. 1 kit contains enough product to coat 2 headlamps. • Simple 2:1 mixing ratio • 1 kit can be invoiced to one vehicle repair • Increased UV resistance • Full adhesion to plastics • Excellent abrasion resistance Part no:

Available in a full grit range, Bodylines gripspeed 80mm 3 Hole discs meet every step of the repair process making them the ideal choice for any Bodyshop.

The ultimate wipe for use while solvent wiping, resistant to solvents, and is hard-wearing, making it the perfect solution for pre-paint solvent wiping jobs. • Silicone-free - safe to use • Solvent-resistant - allows the usage of different solvents • Low solvent extractables - preserves clean surfaces • Very low linting - minimizes fibre shedding Part No: BdPBPCC





The small diameter of the discs allows for awkward areas to be accessed easily ensuring a consistent repair is attained. By using a 2.5mm orbital sander with the gripspeed 80mm discs this produces a finer scratch pattern on the finer graders which will ultimately help to reduce polishing time and overall process time of the repair. greater user control over sanding is also gained by using the smaller sander unit as the orbit can be controlled and confined. With the incorporated ceramic grain properties of the discs, improved cutting and maximized stock removal is achieved allowing for a consistent finish. The ingenious stearate coating significantly reduces clogging of the abrasive. The noticeable net result is an increased service lifetime.

HEADLAMP Top Tips - Headlamp Repair Headlamp repair is one way to make all repair models more profitable or affordable. With the increasing prices on new headlamp units (e.g. over ÂŁ700 for the new BmW 5 series xenon) there is a huge demand to be able to repair cosmetic damage to headlamp lenses. now you can repair a headlamp with cosmetic damage rather than have to replace it with Bodylines latest range of products. To begin the repair, use a Bodyline 80mm P80 gripspeed disc to sand the damaged area. follow this by sanding the complete headlamp with a Bodyline 80mm P180 gripspeed disc to remove the 80 grade scratches and original Uv coating. mirror this process with the P320, P500 & P1000 80mm gripspeed discs -

this will give the required surface to complete the repair. now all the damage has been removed, the headlamp needs preparing for the topcoat (re-application of the Uv coating). firstly, prepare the edges of the headlamp using the Bodyline Ultra-fine Weave Pad to give a mechanical key. Clean the repaired area using a solvent degreaser and Waterbased Pre-Cleaner in combination with the Bodyline Pre-Cleaning Cloth to remove any dust or contaminates. mask the surrounding areas of the headlamp to protect the undamaged areas. Again, clean the headlamp with the Bodyline eC degreaser & Bodyline Pre-Cleaning cloth to ensure the surface is completely

clean and ready for application of topcoat. Using the pre measured product, mix the contents of the Headlamp repair Kit together by simply pouring the Bodyline Headlamp repair Activator (small pot) into the Bodyline Headlamp Coating and stir thoroughly . (1 kit contains enough material to repair and protect 2 headlamps) spray the first coat of headlamp protection and allow to flash off for 5 minutes before applying the second coat. Allow the coats to dry for 30 minutes at 60°C. The special chemical capabilities of the coatings are designed to withstand the double Uv attack from sunlight. If the Uv Light is able to penetrate through the lens it will bounce back off the reflector which

We find the 80mm discs are ideal for small area repair techniques and hard to reach areas that need a high standard of preparation. They come in a wide range of grits, which make them suited to a wide range of applications in our bodyshop. not only are they a great performing disc they represent great value for money compared to others brands on the market. The 80mm Bodyline discs are an invaluable product to any bodyshops production. Alan Bowdley - Lead Painter sovereign Horseboxes, Wolverhampton

could also damage the inside of the lens - this can be very harmful to plastic finishes. The innovative coating also has the capability to allow it to withstand abrasion from carwashes and stone chipping. once the headlamp has been allowed to dry, the repair is complete and is ready to be reassembled on the car. from start to finish the whole repair process can be completed within 2 hours, enabling an easy repair that offers additional labour charges (rather than potentially very expensive replacement unit cost!)


WALK THIs WAY To WArrIngTon We are pleased to announce the relocation of our manchester branch to Warrington as part of ongoing developments to improve the branch network.
