Axalta, a leading global supplier of automotive paints and coatings, has launched an ongoing series of refinish training videos designed to help automotive repair body shops deal with troublesome, yet common paint defects.
The first six videos is available now, to view free of charge. The videos cover a range of issues refinishers deal with regularly, including poor paint adhesion on plastic parts, solvent popping, peroxide bleeding, water spotting, poor opacity and correct sanding. The videos also showcase the truly global nature of Axalta’s Refinish business, with presenters representing Axalta Refinish training leaders not only from Australia, but also Europe, the US and Asia.
Each tutorial video is no longer than four minutes and explains the nature of each defect, how it is caused, and offers solutions for fixing the problem, and, crucially, advice on how to prevent suboptimal results occurring in the first place.
Paul Polverino, National Training Manager, Axalta Coating Systems Australia said: “We know our body shops strive for 100% customer satisfaction, so it is always disappointing when preventable issues affect the quality of paint finishes. This series of videos support refinishers not only to excel at the paint repair process, but also to add value for their customers around the world every single time. What’s more, the videos are accessible to everyone, so we are pleased to offer our wealth of coatings experience to everyone, whether or not you are an Axalta customer.”
