Ian MacDonald - Manager MacDonald Collision Centre, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada “We are very pleased with the whole conversion process and we’ve been able to increase our capacity. The transition was easy, didn’t require a major outlay for equipment and we’re saving on energy costs. We have absolutely no issues with Cromax® Pro Basecoat - we would never go back to using another basecoat system.”

Rande Lance - Paint Shop Manager Prestigious Auto Body & Painting, Goleta, California, USA “We made the switch in November 2007 and since then Cromax® Pro Basecoat is all we use. It’s very user-friendly and holds up extremely well when you push it to the limit. Plus, it’s a great finish. It looks better than other basecoats we’ve used and it’s much better in regard to speed and efficiency. Without question, Cromax® Pro Basecoat is the future.”

Jack Bongard - Owner Bongard Collision Centre, Ajax, Ontario, Canada “We’re very happy with the outcome. Cromax® Pro Basecoat is very productive – we’ve been able to increase our output by at least one car a day, and the quality of the work is excellent.”

”We’ve worked with DuPont Refinish products for 20 years and my refinishers really like this product. They say the colour matches are better versus other basecoats and it covers faster, but I like Cromax® Pro Basecoat because it dries quickly, increasing my productivity. I was also impresased with the conversion process, which took about one day. But best of all, between the transition and training, we never lost productivity.” Mike Braido - Owner Auto Body Expressions, Elk Grove, California, USA
