Glasurit range showcased by the best

Glasurit’s 100 Line is fast gaining a global reputation as the most outstanding waterborne basecoat line for eco-effective paint results.

Whether it is the fiercely fought out competition of the WorldSkills in France or the local workshop owner looking for the best solutions, Glasurit’s 100 Line is fast gaining a global reputation as the most outstanding waterborne basecoat line for eco-effective paint results.

The Glasurit products from BASF will be centre stage at the WorldSkills International competition in Lyon, France in September where emerging talents from around the globe are getting to know the eco-friendly products as they showcase their skills.

This long-standing partnership between Glasurit’s and WorldSkills in the car painting category fosters talent development, promotes excellence in the automotive industry and the 100 Line products send a new message about the sustainability initiatives in the industry.

This is a theme reaching across the globe, down to the workshop where efficiency and the environmental impact of products and energy use are increasingly part of business decision making.

The 100 Line meets the highest requirements of modern body shops and focuses on eco-effectiveness, process efficiency and highest product quality. The products also partner with their pioneering AraClass EcoBalance coatings for complete workshop solutions.

Since 1888, Glasurit has stood for quality, social and ecological responsibility and the 100 Line helps customers become more competitive and, at the same time, improve their environmental footprint as well as drive overall performance.

Continuing with this rich history, Glasurit 100 Line marked another important milestone for BASF in the Australian and New Zealand automotive refinish market, when they became the first countries to introduce the waterborne basecoat system in Asia Pacific in 2020.

“Glasurit 100 Line is designed to increase the overall efficiency of modern body shops of the future and at the same time reduce the environmental footprint, exceeding all global VOC requirements. 100 Line truly demonstrates where sustainability meets efficiency” says Kirsten Dodd, ANZ Marketing Manager, BASF Australia.

Glasurit 100 Line is the first basecoat line on the market with a VOC value below 250 g/l, which is 40 per cent below the EU solvent limit. It also exceeds all global VOC requirements. Glasurit has succeeded in producing a waterborne basecoat system of unprecedented eco- effectiveness and quality with Glasurit 100 Line.

Glasurit AraClass EcoBalance clearcoats and undercoats are produced following a biomass balance approach, and 100 Lines’ excellent colour stability, robustness in application and its environmental attributes, Glasurit is able to provide customers with an innovative and sustainable paint system.

“Glasurit 100 Line is now perfectly complimented with the introduction of the AraClass EcoBalance range,” Kirsten says.

“The opportunity for body shops to contribute towards a more sustainable future in the automotive repair industry both ecologically and economically through new innovative products and an eco-effective portfolio is very exciting”.
