Paints and materials approved by automotive manufacturers give refinishers peace of mind when carrying out repairs on cars and commercial vehicles. Such official approvals mean that both refinishers and their customers can be sure that these materials exceed the manufacturers original quality standards. Standox GmbH in Wuppertal holds approvals from leading automotive manufacturers ï¿½ both worldwide and in specific countries.
The recent approval of a Standox refinish system for the Mercedes SLR McLaren demonstrates the performance of Standox paints, and their ability to exceed the quality requirements of even the most exclusive supercars.
The coupï¿½s striking wing-style doors and beautiful lines are reminiscent of the companyï¿½s Formula One Silver Arrows and the legendary SLR racing cars of the 1950s. The carbon fibre body and chassis is very definitely a product from today's racing world, offering sensational handling characteristics and excellent crash protection. An ecologically compatible paint system specifically designed for use with carbon fibre is used for the original finish. If the car ever needs to be refinished, a tested paint system is available from Standox.
Standox has built partnerships with automotive manufacturers and their importers for many years. These close relationships make it possible for Standox to lead the way with new technology such as water-soluble paints and scratch-resistant clearcoats. In addition to approvals from the manufacturers' global headquarters, further approvals are also required to comply with each local market.
