The success of car body repair work relies heavily on two different things; the standard of preparation and the overall quality of the paint finish. At PD Motors, we perform full and partial resprays for motorists in the Croydon area who value the importance of a job well done. Despite being a relatively small business in comparison to larger garages and bodyshops in the local area, our company ensures fast turnarounds on resprays with the promise of perfect colour matching, blemish-free paintwork and complete durability.
Our workshop on Sydenham Road in Croydon has its own state-of-the-art low-bake oven, an important facility for full and partial resprays which delivers key benefits:
• Extraction and filters for a clean, dust-free environment and fewer blemishes
• A significant reduction in the release of volatile organic compounds
• Reduced overspray for better visibility and protection for non-painted panels
• A safer, cleaner working environment for our personnel
• Optimal spraying temperatures for superior paint atomisation and curing
• A professional finish with less need for any subsequent cutting and polishing
• Faster drying times of as little as 20 minutes with the use of a paint accelerator
Following the withdrawal of PAS 125 standards and their subsequent replacement with BS 10125:2014, workshops like our own facility in Croydon face tighter legislation than ever before. Businesses also have to comply with COSHH regulations. This makes it especially important to use compliant materials and high-end equipment on full and partial resprays. At PD Motors, we insist on water-based colours and the industry’s most durable clear coats.
Water-based (or waterborne) paints provide better protection for our personnel in comparison to solvent-based alternatives. They have a lower VOC content, and ultimately reduce the risk of isocyanate poisoning and damage to the central nervous system. Water-based paint also protects the environment, and has a stronger hue than solvents.
This helps us to achieve a superior colour match, and most jobs require less paint ahead of the clear coat application – which ultimately saves money on the cost of resprays. The team at our workshop in Croydon uses high-end refinishing equipment from market-leading companies such as DeVilbiss and SATA, complete with modern set-ups that atomise water-based paints properly for superior depth, coverage, distribution and colour matching.
