Glasurit granted Tesla approval

Tesla Motors has granted approval for Glasurit’s refinish products for its global bodyshop network.

The Glasurit 90 Line waterborne paint system was convincing in numerous tests with Tesla’s vehicles, which are manufactured in a lightweight aluminum.

High-level colour expertise, along with a comprehensive portfolio of training opportunities and services, completes Glasurit’s package of support for Tesla Motors and, in turn, its bodyshop customers.

As BASF’s premium brand, Glasurit benefits from the renowned system solutions that the company offers top car manufacturers worldwide, from the development of innovative automotive colours to the implementation of new application techniques.

BASF is also a partner at Tesla’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Fremont, California. At this site, the Coatings division’s advanced application technology is used to complement the processes in order to guarantee the high quality standards for OEM coating.

Tesla’s drive to integrate the latest technology and techniques, together with ecological sustainability, was also the deciding factor for granting global approval for Glasurit’s waterborne 90 Line paint system for refinishing.
