Body Shops and other professionals

Automotive/Marine/Industrial/Home/Other

Body shops use coloring systems based on weights. We can customize any color you need and supply you with your premixed colors in quarts or gallons or we can provide you with a coloring system with 12 different base colors and a clear to mix and match any color you want. The coloring system will cost less than an individual premixed color and will give you the flexibility to mix small quantities of any color you need.

When you buy the coloring system we provide you with the RAL color chart as well as the formulas for all the RAL colors on our RAL color chart. Any color that you do not find on our chart can also be matched for you and the formulas provided.

None of our products require a primer, flex agents or additives. All our products dry very quickly, which means that the paint booth in the body shop is not tied up for long periods of time waiting for the product to dry.

We can also supply you with a special matting agent and a high gloss clear to make the finish flat, satin or glossy. We also have different types of pearl finishes and can show you how to work with interference colors.

If using solvent based dyes or paints
For coloring vinyl, soft plastics and carpets we recommend using VariKote
For coloring leather we recommend LeatherKote.
When coloring hard plastics including polypropylene, TPO, EPDM or other hard to diagnose plastics we recommend spraying the adhesion promoter Plastikprep and then spraying VariBond to provide the final color and finish.
You can also color metal surfaces such as aluminum, steel etc., which have already been primed with VariBond. In most cases VariBond will bond to these surfaces even without a primer.
When coloring rubberized surfaces we suggest RubberBond.

If using Waterborne dyes or paints
For coloring vinyl, leather, rubber surfaces and most plastics we recommend using WB Varikolor. (Please test on a small corner to make sure that WB Varikolor is bonding to the rubber and plastic surfaces).
When coloring hard plastics including polypropylene, TPO, EPDM or other hard to diagnose plastics we recommend spraying the adhesion promoter Plastikprep and then spraying WB Varikolor or WB Acrukolor to provide the final color and finish.
For coloring metal surfaces such as aluminum, steel etc., we recommend spraying the adhesion promoter WB Primer then WB Varikolor or WB Acrukolor.

None of our products contain cadmium, zinc, formaldehyde or isocyanates.
