Clear cut Time and Energy costs!
R-M Launches Speedflash S
SPEEDFLASH S offers a range of benefits to enhance the paintshop productivity. The new product delivers versatility and offers the choice of how one makes the savings either through faster baking times, lower baking temperatures or reduced energy costs.
R-M SPEEDFLASH S is, in essence, an accelerator thinner, but the advanced chemical make up of this highly effective new product makes it so much more than that. It is a total performance enhancer for R-M's leading clear lacquers. Developed specifically to complement R-M's VOC compliant clearcoats: STARLUX CP - CHRONOLUX CP - DIAMONTCLEAR CP and CRYSTALCLEAR CP, SPEEDFLASH S is quick and very simple to use.
This single product simply replaces the standard thinner and is added at exactly the same mixing ratio as directed on the relevant clearcoat Technical Data Sheet. The clear is applied using the established half coat followed by a full coat, with no need to flash off between coats.
When using SPEEDFLASH S, the time and energy savings really are significant, which in the current climate of continually rising energy costs, is vitally important to every bodyshop, regardless of size.
The ability of SPEEDFLASH S to cut the baking time of CHRONOLUX CP to just 10 minutes at 60°C or to dry the clear in 20 minutes at just 45°C can not only significantly speed throughput but slash energy costs by as much as 50%.
CRYSTALCLEAR CP can be baked in just 15 minutes at 60°C panel temperature, with the addition of SPEEDFLASH S or at the much lower panel temperature of 45°C in 30 minutes.The benefits for every bodyshop, whether large or small, are crystal clear, in that spray booth running costs are significantly reduced, with up to a 75% reduction in booth idle times and up to a 50% reduction in drying times.
Clearcoats thinned with SPEEDFLASH S also offer good levelling and hold out, which is vital in achieving a high quality finish, particularly when completing minor spot repairs and panel blends, while the reliability of application and drying processes is maintained, together with excellent polishing behaviour. SPEEDFLASH S doesn't just offer the flexibility to operate between 45°C and 50°C curing temperatures, it has been developed specifically to give optimum results at these lower temperatures.
Therefore, to ensure bodyshops benefit from the highest possible product performance from STARLUX CP - CHRONOLUX CP - DIAMONTCLEAR CP and CRYSTALCLEAR CP and the balance sheet gets a healthy boost.
