 n TECHNICAL SERVICES

Custom color matching 

 

Having trouble finding the paint code on the vehicle you are working on? Need a color custom matched for whatever project you may have? Just bring in or send in a sample and we can match it. Just let us know if you want an exact match or a bendable match. Our skilled color matchers will do the rest.

 

Spray gun cleaning and repair

 

 

Is your spray gun not performing up to par? Just send your gun in to the store and have our repair center examine it. Once they have determined the problem they will give you a call and an estimate of what it will take to get it performing well again. It may just need a good cleaning, repaired, or sometimes rebuilt if necessary.                                                                                    

 

Facility technical analysis

 

A technical analysis is a complete unbiased overview of the technical areas of your repair facility. This analysis encompasses all aspects of the repair and refinishing processes from the time the vehicle enters your shop to the final inspection of the completed repair.     

Compressed air analysis    

 

 

A compressed air analysis is a detailed look at the complete air supply source in your shop. Starting with the compressor itself, we thoroughly examine every part of the system. All areas in need of attention will be photographed and documented in a report with suggested solutions to identified problems and potential problems.                                                                                      

 

 

Spray booth analysis  

A spray booth analysis is a process that will show how your booth is performing during the spray and baking cycles. Temperature and airflow are measured and plotted on graphs to visualize current booth performance and identify areas needing improvement.                    

Waterborne shop scan 

 

Are you ready to use waterborne paints in your facility? This shop scan can help answer that question. This process utilizes the Spray Booth Analysis, Technical Analysis, and the Compressed Air Analysis Services while focusing on the specific demands required for the use of a waterborne material. Once this process is completed you will know exactly what you need to do to be ready to use waterborne coatings.

 


 n BUSINESS SERVICES

 
 
Paint and materials inventory management 

 

Our Paint and Materials Management program allows us to assist you in achieving inventory organization and levels that meet your needs not exceed them. This process allows us to better serve you since you will have customized order forms designed especially for your shop. These order forms contain only the products you use in your shop and since they are typed out, our store personnel do not have to decipher a salesman’s hand writing or suffer through a bad cell phone connection    to determine what product you ordered. This eliminates potential areas for mistakes resulting in more accurate orders for you.  

 Paint and material profit monitoring program 

While our major paint manufacturers have very detailed programs to help you, our Paint and Materials Profit Monitoring Program is more of an entry level way to monitor your figures. This is  kind of a walk before you run philosophy. All you need to do is submit a few numbers to us on a monthly or quarterly basis and we can enter the data into our program. What you get back is a selection of graphs and charts compared to industry benchmarks so you can see how your shop measures up.  

 


 n TRAINING SERVICES

In shop I-CAR training  

I-CAR training needs are a constant in our industry if you want to keep up with technological advances. Through the support of our suppliers, we are able to offer various ICAR certified classes to help our customers achieve this goal. Examples of this are: panel bonding, plastic repairs, truck bed liners, interior refinish, and custom refinishing.                                                         

Federal application certification  

 

As stated in a new Federal Rule for Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coatings Operations, shop owners have to ensure legal compliance to the following guidelines:

  • Train and certify all painters.  
  • Install spray booths that are 98% efficient. 
  • Use fully enclosed and ventilated spray booths.  
  • Apply coatings with HVLP or equivalent technology. 
  • Use enclosed spray gun cleaning methods.  
  • Submit required notification and reports, or keep records.  

 

Existing collision repair facilities have until January 10, 2011 to fully comply with the new rule.
