Glasurit has introduced the most advanced range of products and solutions – delivering a unique combination of quality, process speed and eco-effectiveness. AraClass offers a revolutionary new range of clear coats, undercoats and mixing clears, accompanied by solutions designed to create the ultimate finish while still ensuring sustainability. As a result, most AraClass products are EcoBalance products, certified for significant CO2 reduction.
The new AraClass is unlike any other paint system in the world, with products consciously designed to balance increased profitability with sustainability. Most products in the AraClass range are certified and verified by an independent third party (Redcert). EcoBalance products are produced based on BASF’s biomass balance approach which contributes to the use of renewable raw materials in the manufacturing and production process partly manufactured with renewable raw materials, instead of fossil fuels, to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
"With the launch of the Glasurit AraClass range, we are extremely excited to bring a revolutionary new range of clear coats and undercoats to the Australian market," said Sally Jones, BASF Head of Sales and Marketing, Australia and New Zealand Coatings.
The Glasurit AraClass range builds on Glasurit’s commitment to offer the automotive repair industry with increasingly environmentally friendly options, following the successful launch of Glasurit 100 Line in 2020, the first basecoat line on the market with a volatile organic compound (VOC) value lower than 250 grams per litre, whilst adding further products in the line up with innovative and sustainable technologies based on UV and air drying technology to further drive savings in the body shop.
“Sustainability is at the heart of what we do, and we are seeing our customers around the world share this value and actively look for products that balance environmental protection, energy consumption and productivity. With Glasurit’s new AraClass range, body shops can now support the environment and at the same time have the guarantee of maximum performance thanks to the use of highly efficient solutions.”
Australia becomes the first market in Asia to pioneer the launch of the new Glasurit portfolio and will be followed by key launches in other countries in 2024.
