DuPont Refinish Strengthens National Rule Basecoat Offering
W. Alan McConachie
Wilmington, Del., Jan. 9, 2012 - DuPont Refinish announces
the planned March 2012 introduction of two new products
designed to improve the coverage of traditionally poor
hiding solvent-borne basecoat colors.
While other refinish paint suppliers have been scaling back
support for their solvent-borne paint lines, DuPont
Refinish not only supports but continues to invest in our
solvent product portfolio. That is why we are proud to
announce the launch of DuPont™ ChromaPremier 62155F™ and
62165F™, a new binder package specifically designed to
improve the coverage of poor hiding colors. The improved
hiding binder package can be utilized with both our
ChromaPremier® and ChromaBase® basecoats. We have
reformulated several hundred of the worst hiding OEM colors
with an option to use the new binders. DuPont™ ColorNet®,
our color retrieval software, will automatically flag poor
hiding colors and provide the option to select the new,
improved hiding formula.
For collision shops in regulated or soon-to-be regulated
areas, or for shops that want the advantage that water
brings, we provide the unique, most productive product line
on the market today with DuPont™ Cromax® Pro. For customers
who do not plan on changing to waterborne in the near
future, we will continue to invest in our solvent products
to support and improve their business.
"These new binders reinforce our commitment to our valued
customers who choose to use National Rule products," said
Harry Christman, DuPont Refinish brand manager.
