Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, launches its Nason Finishes refinish brand in South Africa. A competitively priced refinish system ideally suited for spot, panel and overall repairs. The brand is already well-established in the US, Russia, Canada, Australia and Asia-Pacific.

“With Axalta’s many years of experience in the South African refinish market, we know what refinishers in South Africa want, so we are introducing Nason Finishes, a refinish brand, made in Europe that is very competitively priced, yet delivers reliable results on uncomplicated repair jobs. Nason Finishes products are reliable and require very little training,” says Lucian Jantjies, sales leader for Axalta in South Africa. “Nason Finishes is backed by the global coating expertise of Axalta, which makes the brand the easy choice for South African body shops and entrepreneurs carrying out cost-limited spot and panel repairs, as well as complete resprays.”

The Colour Software has a user-friendly interface and offers access to a global colour database of more than 110 000 formulas to make colour formula retrieval quick and easy. And integrated with Colour Navigator – the spectrophotometer – it helps refinishers to select the right formula at the start of the repair.

Paul Retief, technical manager for Axalta in South Africa, says, “Colour Navigator is designed to select the best formula, when more than one is available, to ensure the best match possible. If no paint code is available, Colour Navigator will scan the entire database of more than 110 000 colours to find the best formula to reduce shading time to a minimum. Because a repair that starts well, ends well.
