Aligning technology and sustainability, the W-Acqua line is a water-based coating developed for the automotive refinish market, produced with 100% Brazilian technology.
The water-based tinting system is recognized worldwide for its quality and low emission of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). The product was developed for the high performance automotive refinish market and is composed of low-toxicity bases with plain, metallic, pearlescent and tri-coat finishing.
Another benefit of the W-Acqua is the MOVE technology. It enables easy homogenization of the paint which can be done manually, increasing the color fidelity and color stability. Instead of the mixing machine, it is only necessary a regular shelf that has the function of storing and, if necessary, maintaining the system temperature.
In addition to superior performance and sustainability, the system brings numerous advantages. Because it uses water as a diluent, it offers less risks compared to the conventional one, with low VOC’s emission, it is easy to implement at any auto body repair workshop.
