Cromax introduces new, next generation surfacer

To help bodyshops increase productivity and profitability, Cromax® has introduced Cromax Pro Surfacer – a next generation surfacer based on cutting edge technology. Part of the ValueShade® concept, it comes in three different shades – PS1061 (white) / PS1064 (grey) / PS1067 (black) – and has been formulated for optimal quality and maximum productivity.

Kevin Welling, Training Academy Manager for Axalta Coating Systems in the UK and Ireland, said: “The new Cromax Pro Surfacer has been designed for exceptional adhesion between the substrate and the basecoat. It is easy and economical to apply, is very robust when used with IR and gives the paint layer a mirror-smooth finish. As part of the next generation of innovative technology from Cromax, this new surfacer offers professional bodyshops the speed and flexibility to improve their productivity.”

The new Cromax Pro Surfacer is VOC-compliant and is based on highly-reactive hydroxy-functional acrylics and polyesters and can be used as a non-sanding surfacer with the addition of the non-sanding converter AZ9032. It can also be used with existing Cromax thinners and activators and with the Cromax High Performance Activators AR7305 and AR7306 for extra durability.

Cromax Pro Surfacer is ideal for spot, panel and over-all repairs on a wide variety of substrates. Its high solids content provides high film build and low product usage. It demonstrates excellent sag resistance, has a wide application window and reduced baking times.

The three shades, PS1061 (white), PS1064 (grey) and PS1067 (black), can be mixed, in differing ratios, to achieve all seven shades of grey in the ValueShade technology.

The new Cromax Pro Surfacer can be used with Cromax basecoat as well as other Cromax topcoats.
