Glasurit has announced the launch of a new primer filler for bodyshops that want to repair minor to moderate damage more efficiently.
Glasurit 151-170 UV Primer Filler, grey, is the new solution that helps reduce process times, energy and waste. Thanks to UV-A technology, it is also easier and safer to use.
A special lamp transmits long-wave ultraviolet light, referred to as UV-A radiation.
The radiation brings about quicker drying, enabling the primer filler to literally dry at the speed of light.
Compared to oven and infrared drying, with the new primer filler and UV-A technology, bodyshops can therefore substantially save energy costs and drying time.
Due to no heat developing with UV-A radiation, process times are shortened, because it eliminates the need for a cooling phase.
It also prevents plastic bumpers from becoming deformed during the refinishing process.
The UV-A radiation is the least harmful part of the ultraviolet light. This makes the technology so safe and easy for bodyshops to use.
There is no need for a separate work area in the bodyshop and spray painters do not need to wear protective clothing. It's enough for them to wear protective glasses and regular protective gloves.
The new UV primer filler is a 1K product without limited pot life. It requires neither hardener nor thinner additives and once it's in the cup, has a shelf life of several days.
