NRD, LLC Offering Static Solutions to all of 2018 SEMA’s Attendees and Exhibitors

Grand Island, NY – October 24, 2018 – NRD, LLC – NRD® will be exhibiting their products at the SEMA Show, October 30 - November 2, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center located at 3150 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109.

Static attracts dust and unwanted particles, making it very difficult to keep surfaces clean, causing blemishes in paint finishes and other work surfaces. In the automotive industry, reworking is not an option, it’s absolutely essential to eliminate static from the environment–at every stage of painting–in order to avoid this costly reworking. Whether creating custom paint jobs for one’s automobile or final repairs from an accident, electrostatic discharge is a constant challenge in the world where perfection is the only option.
