Southfield, Michigan — BASF has announced that its premium refinish brand, RM, has launched what it calls the first-ever single-coat clear, RMC1000.
The product was created to meet customer demands for speed and efficiency, reducing cycle times and providing superior sag resistance. According to BASF, RMC1000 can be applied wet in one layer and dried at 140F° for 30 minutes. Compared to other, 1.5-layer coats on the market, there is no flash-off time and, according to BASF, no need for a second coat.
With no flash-off time or application of a second coat, [shops] can increase daily cycles, says BASF. In addition to opportunities for additional revenue, BASF says RMC1000 may increase efficiency without adding repair orders.
“RMC100 is a trailblazing product for our customers. As the very first one-coat clear in the industry, the increase in speed and efficiency is simply unobtainable through any other product on the market,” said Jim Reddy, BASF Marketing Manager, Americas—Refinish Coatings.
The new RMC1000 is available in U.S. national rule markets, says BASF.
