In the Automotive sector we deal with professional businesses repairing accident damaged vehicles, restoration specialists, car sales & minor repairers, SMART repairers, Alloy Wheel repairers, Motorbike repairers and DIY clientele who need a spot of touch up or an aerosol for home use.
Because the requirements are so different, we offer a wide selection of products to meet legislative requirements, conditions, speed of use, colour availability, health & safety needs etc.
We will match colours for you usually within 48 hours, however, some colours require more time, especially when matching water-based colour.
Primers: We have multiple options for Automotive priming including our flagship Mipa 4+1, and SMOOTHY both compliant to 2004/42/11B/250. We also have specialist plastics and self etching primers, in varying formats.
As well as tinted high build primers, epoxy primers in both sprayable and aerosol formats.
Basecolour: We offer Water Based Compliant base colour for modern vehicles, which need a compliant Clearcoat system over them. Contrary to popular belief, the water base basecoat is very easy to use and offers significant advantage to the painter: virtually no reactions on re-coating and hardly ever an issue with blending, as long as they are used with warmth and adequate air flow they perform superbly well.
Restoration & Motorbikes: We have alternative products for the motor bike and restoration markets using solvent. These products are only allowed for sale to this market in limited quantity as there is a special dispensation in the regulations for it. You do however have to prove it is what you say it is for and a disclaimer at the very least will have to be signed before we can supply you. If your main business is restoration then our understanding is that you should have a licence from your council, please check online with your local authority.
We not only sell paint products, but everything need for you to do the job. This includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE, masks, coveralls, gloves etc), Masking products such as paper, sheeting, tape, specialist tapes, solvents, cleaning products, mixing containers, clearcoats, hardeners, primers, bodyfillers (fillers, stoppers, bridging fillers), sprayguns for most budgets (inc airlines, spares, fittings), aerosol options, wipers, polishing cloths, compounds, polish, valeting products, abrasives for sanders, hand blocking, wet or dry papers, polishing abrasive systems, specialist SMART products, equipment of all types to name a few.
