It was a green consciousness that made Ian Peacock of Peacock Smash Repairs in Wodonga, Victoria, switch to baslac 45 waterborne refinish system. "We had been using solvent up until we changed to baslac, but one of my painters had used water before and spoke highly of it," said Peacock. "Water seems to be the way to go now and we found it a good time to make the change."
In making the switch from a solvent to water refinish system, Peacock and his team undertook training on how to get the most out of the the baslac 45 waterborne refinish system, and have been very happy with the performance of the product range. "One of the big benefits is if we have to re-work something we can do it quite easily. With the last system we had if we had to re-work it you almost couldn’t do it, we had a lot of problems with it frying up,“ said Peacock, "baslac is really good we don’t have any hesitation with it, it works really well."
While change is never easy, Ian knows it’s important to stay up to date with an evolving industry and was grateful for the support baslac provided through the transition and the product’s ease of application. "It’s a lot harder these days in keeping up with the technology changing, even in the painting, with three layers and different colours," he said. "But baslac provides a lean and easy to use range of high quality refinishing products."
Peacock is also equally impressed with baslac‘s cost effective price
"I would estimate it has knocked a third of the cost off our paint bill, maybe more“ said Peacock. "The painters are finding the colours are really good.“
The team at Darbys Paints, based in Geelong, Ballarat and Shepparton, Victoria are the approved distributor of baslac products to Peacock Smash Repairs and have a great working relationship with the team. "The service is good. We can get something overnight if we run out" Peacock said.
