GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Light: it stimulates sight, makes the world visible and inspires innovation. Without it we stand in darkness. Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, has harnessed the power of light by developing a light source that may forever change the way body shops achieve refinish perfection. Known as Speed Light, this hand-held device allows even the finest imperfections to be seen.
The right lighting conditions are essential to every stage of the paint repair process. Speed Light’s diode bulbs, more commonly known as LEDs, save energy, last up to 60,000 hours and are cool to the touch. This technology offers clean, pure white light that is ideal for viewing and matching colors and helps body shop professionals detect imperfections.
Speed Light can be used throughout the refinish process to help identify pre-paint defects like pinholes and sand scratches, compare color samples, check color matches and identify flake coarseness. It can also help refinishers spot post-repair issues like coverage and hiding.
Body shops know the importance of the paint process. It is the final step in the vehicle repair work flow. Axalta is committed to helping body shops optimize this process by providing the latest technologies. Speed Light is another example of this commitment.
