Sherwin-Williams, through its Automotive Finishes division, announced it has introduced its Ultra BC8 refinish system into North America.
European-designed for simplicity and accuracy, Ultra BC8 features a compact system with 65 toners delivering on both colour intensity and brilliance. Sherwin-Williams complemented this new colour system with its Premium brand of powerhouse primer surfacers and sealers and show-quality clears.
“With Ultra BC8, we have expanded our solvent portfolio with a premium solution and matched the performance and reputation of our undercoats and clears,” said Justin Binns, President & General Manager, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “This new system hits colour. We want painters tinting less, painting more.”
Ultra BC8 users will also have access to their choice of clears including Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes’ bestselling CC250 as well as cycle time driver HPC21 Air-Bake Clearcoat. “We’re focused on building systems that push the productivity and profitability envelope,” said Binns. “Delivering on our repair promise with high performance, solutions-based technologies like Ultra BC8, does more than drive our customer’s business, they move the industry overall.”
Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes is supporting this new refinish system with a suite of colour tools, support and service, ranging from a 5-angle spectrophotometer to colour retrieval software for 24/7 formula access and a global colour box with more than 8,000 OEM standards and variances.
Ultra BC8 is available through more than 180 Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes branch locations across North America.
