The facility in the Municipality of Tiel is intended to enable Axalta to provide more customers with paint and non-paint products and services.
The facility includes the new Dutch Academy of Axalta Refinish, which is an innovative body shop environment for training bodybuilders. It also features the recently released Daisy Wheel 3.0, which for the first time enables fully automated end-to-end color mixing and works seamlessly with Axalta’s digital color management.
A separate mixing room – part of Axalta’s direct distribution point – is fitted with a dual paint mixer to make it quick and easy for customers who need large amounts of top coatings. The new facility also includes expanded three-storey offices and a large automated warehouse.
Formulation of automotive coatings
The automotive industry and paint manufacturers spend considerable sums on producing particularly attractive surfaces. The main objective in the paint industry is protection against corrosion, weathering, chemical and mechanical influences as well as obtaining attractive surfaces. Several manufacturers specialize exclusively in automotive lacquers. This book deals with the composition and manufacture of the most difficult components as well as their physical and technological characteristics of application. The characteristics of the application technology describe the behavior of the application, the task of protection, and the appearance of the response. Ulrich Poth approaches the people responsible for raw materials, systems and application procedures. In addition, Automotive Coatings Formulation is aimed at all chemists, physicists, engineers and other technically interested persons.
