The new Permasolid Clear Coat Colour Additive 9051 from Spies Hecker enables body shops to repair the latest orange trend, today.  

Orange is a colour that up until now was rarely seen on vehicles, but with today’s new deep luminosity, it is seeing a revival. Paint repair of the new Renault colour Valencia Orange (EQB), which stands out with its special coloured clear coat, is made much easier with this new colour additive. 

Electric orange 

At the International Motor Show (IAA) last September in Frankfurt, Germany, many car manufacturers presented new electric and hybrid cars in rich, bright orange shades.  

“Orange is on the rise, especially for electric and hybrid cars and with the new Permasolid Clear Coat Colour Additive 9051, our body shops are well prepared to repair the shade.” says Joachim Hinz, Spies Hecker brand manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. 

The colour formula for Renault Valencia Orange (EQB), including the new Permasolid Clear Coat Color Additive 9051, is now available in the Phoenix colour software.
