AkzoNobel launches 3D paint webpage

AkzoNobel have launched a new Creating Special Colors web page dedicated to the latest advancements in three-dimensional paint.

The new page will serve as an additional go-to source of information for its Sikkens Autowave MM 2.0 three-dimensional colour range.

Three-dimensional paintwork consists of a coloured basecoat, featuring thinner and flatter aluminium flakes than normal metallic paints, followed by a semi-transparent coloured midcoat and then a clearcoat. The result is a ‘liquid metal’ appearance, colour depth, 3D effect and intense light reflection.

AkzoNobel’s strategic accounts manager, Frank Delaney, commented, ‘We’re seeing increasingly complex colours enter the market, which are potentially challenging for bodyshops to accurately replicate. Our Autowave MM 2.0 range – when used in conjunction with our digital colour matching technology – will help give bodyshops first time right reliability and reduce process times.’
