Current and Future OEM styling trends and the Impact on Refinish  — RD12

OEMs have upped their game when it comes to unique colors and finishes in recent years and for body shops, this has meant one of a kind colors are needed to repair a vehicle. However, a repair is no longer just about the pigment and color – the specific formulation and repair process is becoming an even more important factor in achieving an excellent match to the car. Many refinish repair processes differ from the OEM paint process and we can shed light on why.

  What attendees will learn:
• What the future styling trends from the OEMs look like
o   Matte finishes
o   New sonic process for metallics
o   Highly chromatic colors
• Why the repair process and color formulation for a special color can be more significant than the actual pigment used by the OEM.
• Why the Refinish repair process may differ from the OEM paint process
