We are now using water based paint technology. While most shops continue to use petroleum solvent based paints, At Quality First Collision, we have converted to the new environmentally friendly Water Based Paint System. Eliminating Harmful VOCs and HAPs! Benefiting all of us in the future!
What’s the Difference?
You’ve probably heard people discussing “waterborne” and “solvent-borne” paints and wondered how they’re different? Does choosing one mean better results and the other mean better for the environment?
Simply put, solvent-based coatings use chemical compounds as the main solvent for thinning pigment solids. Although effective, this method releases Volatile Organic Compound into the atmosphere. Waterborne coatings use water as the primary solvent which greatly reduces VOC emissions.
Do waterborne coatings perform as well as solvent-borne? Absolutely. Water Based Paint has proven to be the best waterborne paint system on the market, meeting the highest standards for car repair.
As a customer at this body shop, you’ve already made an informed choice by choosing a collision center that uses Water Based Paint.
You can feel proud that your vehicle will be repaired with a waterborne paint system that is fully compliant with the strictest legislative regulations. And we’d like to thank you for your important role in protecting the environment.
